Alvarez Early Favourite in Jacobs Match-Up

by Glenn Baird - January 21, 2019

The announcement that Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs will meet in a middleweight title unification match was made last week, with the bookies wasting no time in backing the Mexican to win the bout.

The fight will take place on the 4th of May in Las Vegas and is set to be one of the biggest of year.

Alvarez currently holds 2 belts to Jacobs 1 but the winner of the fight at the beginning of May will leave Sin City with all 3 and an undisputed claim to being the best middleweight boxer in world.

Alvarez has fought 54 times and only lost once, losing by a majority decision to Floyd Mayweather back in 2013. Jacobs has fought 37 times and only lost twice, all the more remarkable when you consider that the American had to take time away from boxing to battle cancer after a large tumour growing on his spine left him paralysed from the waist down.

With the ink barely set on the contract UK based bookies Ladbrokes published odds of 2/5 in favour of Alvarez, with Jacobs claiming the status of underdog at 15/8.

Ring magazine places Alvarez at the top of the middleweight pile whilst Jacobs sits 3rd, the pair sandwiching Kazakhstani boxer Gennady Golovkin, who is hotly tipped to face the winner of this bout before 2019 is through.

As the media machine rolls on it is likely that odds will fluctuate depending on who comes out best during the press junkets prior to the big night.

With more than 4 months to it will be interesting to just how big this one can get.
