Saunders: Jacobs Praised For 'Brilliant Loss' - You Lost, Got Beat!

WBO middleweight Billy Joe Saunders (25-0, 12 KOs) is scratching his head as to why Daniel Jacobs (33-2, 29 KOs) is being praised by some experts for a twelve round unanimous decision loss to WBC, WBA, IBO, IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs).

Jacobs was a big underdog in the fight and many expected him to get knocked out - especially since prior to that contest Golovkin had knocked out 23 opponents in a row.

Jacobs defied the odds, by getting off the floor in the fourth round to take Golovkin the full twelve round distance. It was a close points defeat for Jacobs, who saw all three judges tally cards of 115-112, 115-112, 114-113 in favor of Golovkin at New York's Madison Square Garden.


Jacosb made his ring return earlier this month, with a dominant decision over undefeated Luis Arias.

Next month, Saunders will travel to Canada to defend his title against former IBF world champion David Lemieux.

Jacobs is planning to travel over to sit ringside at that contest - because he wants to call out the winner. He believes both Saunders and Lemieux are a level below him.

While Saunders views Jacobs as a good fighter, he is not impressed with a boxer looking good in a loss. Saunders would rather look terrible in winning.  

"Danny Jacobs is a good fighter, he's come through some tough battles in his life. Everybody's talking about a 'brilliant loss' he had. He lost. You got beat. I'd rather have a terrible win than a brilliant loss," Saunders said to IFL TV.

If Saunders wins against Lemieux, he wants to target Golovkin - if a rematch is not finalized with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez for May 5th, as part of Cinco De Mayo weekend.

If Golovkin-Canelo II is set, then it will be interesting to see if a Saunders vs. Jacobs deal can even get done. They are represented by rival promoters in the UK. Saunders has a deal with Frank Warren, while Jacobs recently signed with Eddie Hearn as part of his Matchroom USA banner.

Whatever praise Jacobs received for showing grit against GGG was wiped out by his post-fight moaning.

Please I don't care if it happens in Blow Job Saunder's caravan, but please god let Jacobs get his hands on this burned face, rat-faced sh*tbag. I hope Lemieux sparkjs the smelly prick so we have a chance of seeing…
