This past weekend Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez made his successful debut on DAZN winning the 168 pound belt from Rocky Fielding in 3 rounds.
The fight pushed the DAZN streaming service to the #1 spot on the Apple and Google app stores.
Canelo’s next fight is already in the works and it’s the fight fans have been begging for. According to promoter Eddie Hearn, DAZN and Golden Boy have already contacted him about the Cinco De Mayo weekend of 2019 for a match with Daniel Jacobs. Check it out:
“It’s the best fight in the middleweight division,” Hearn said to Fighthub about Canelo vs. Jacobs. “You’ve got Danny Jacobs who had a fight with Gennady Golovkin, very close, many people thought he won that fight”.
“He’s now world champion, that’s a unification fight, it’s a real middleweight matchup. That’s the one that myself, Keith Connolly, DAZN, everyone is pushing for for Cinco de Mayo. Callum Smith, he’s going to be boxing in the summer. The guys at DAZN want a Danny Jacobs fight right now. That’s the natural fight.”
