CANELO ALVAREZ and Danny Jacobs faced one another after their final press conference on Wednesday ahead of their WBA, WBC and IBF middleweight title clash this Saturday (May 4). The two confronted each other for a steely eyed staredown. The Mexican was as calm as ever but Jacobs, noticeably the larger man, also looked primed and ready.

“I just feel as if the thirst for this fight is at an all-time high. We are only three days away from a mega fight and it’s such a privilege to be here right before this mega showdown. This is the opportunity of a lifetime for me and I’m mostly excited to get in there to show the world that I am the best middleweight of my generation. I finally have an opportunity to prove it, to go against Canelo Alvarez. You guys are going to see fireworks, masterful boxing, skills, dedication, persistence, and grit most importantly,” he said.

“I’m gonna talk inside the ring and let my fighting speak for itself. To Canelo – let’s put on a good show, my brother.”
