Jacobs scored a first-round knockdown and that helped him build just enough of a lead to hold on in a tight finish in which both fighters were swinging wildly across the late rounds.

He won 115-112 on two judges’ cards, while Derevyanchenko won 114-113 on the other card.

Jacobs (35-2, 29 KOs) took the belt that was vacated when Gennady Golovkin chose not to fight Derevyanchenko, his mandatory challenger, this spring while awaiting his rematch with Canelo Alvarez.

Alvarez won that bout and now Jacobs said that’s the fight he wants next. Derevyanchenko (12-1) fell just short in his long-awaited first shot at a title.

I like both fighters but they both won vacant titles, everyone wants a piece of the Canelo pie, in reality Jacobs should go for GGG rematch and Andrade should go for BJS then the winners fight!

Andrade and jacobs unify then the winner gets canelo

Comment by Boksfan on 10-28-2018

Both Andrade and Jacobs want Clenelo and not each other, looks like ginger cheat will be busy.
