Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez and US boxer Daniel Jacobs met for the first time, February 27, 2019, ahead of their fight in Las Vegas on May 4. Both boxers will be looking for the real middle-class world champions in the world boxing body IBF, WBC and WBA on May 4 at the T-Mobile Arena Las Vegas. Jacobs, who was a survivor of bone cancer in 2012, admitted the fight this time would be a proof of him, while Canelo believes this time will return to victory. Canelo himself will return to the middle class. He is having gone up to the super middle class when he won the WBA version of the world-class title by destroying Rocky Fielding in the third round last December, briefly.
The game takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, May 4, 2019. The Arena is a kind of home for Canelo and will be even more so considering the fight takes place on the weekend of Cinco de Mayo. Because it is held in Vegas, the Ring Walk is estimated to start between 4.30 am, or even 5 am. This exciting match will be broadcast on the DAZN television channel and for the UK area will be televised on Sky Sports. Fans can already buy the ticket, but the remaining ones are available at a higher price. For this match ticket, viewers can buy it for a minimum amount of $ 305.
In the press conference, at Hard Rock Cafe, New York, Canelo said, “I always like challenges, not least at this time. Daniel Jacobs is identical with his abilities, qualities, and talents. He can move quickly in the ring. So, we will prepare ourselves the best and give the best for boxing fans. We will come out as winners of this fight. ” Canelo admitted that he was preparing for a fierce battle. If he wins faces Jacobs, Canelo will qualify for a third fight against his arch-rivals in the middle class, Gennady Golovkin.
The hype is high. But the atmosphere can get hotter because of the recent comments from Jarrell Miller. It is still three months away from that we’d watch Joshua vs Miller bout at New York’s Madison Square Garden on June 1. But it has never been too early to discuss what’s going on the road.
Miller said that the world champion Anthony Joshua has an “image problem.” Both fighters are preparing for the upcoming bout at Madison Square Garden on June 1. Joshua will defend his IBF< IBO, WBA and WBO titles against Miller.
Miller told the media that Joshua was not coming from the area known for being tough. With this statement, it may bring a real outrage to Joshua’s side. But we didn’t see any response from the respective boxer yet. Miller added that Joshua was talking himself up, but people wanted something real.
Some folks can understand why Miller stated that statement. The point is that Miller grew up in “roughly broken home.” and he said that he trained to be a great fighter to defend himself after being attacked in the street. We can say that the rough environment is what shaped Miller to be an excellent fighter nowadays. Joshua was raised in Hertfordshire. But he lived on Watford Meriden estate, one of the saddest areas.
Miller has also suggested that Joshua has taken privileges to his success. Miller claimed that the state of his hands was not coming from boxing, but from street fighting.
Well, no matter the different backgrounds from both fighters, we can’t neglect the fact that both are incredible fighters. Both fighters are unbeaten.
Miller will be likely to be Joshua’s most massive opponent for the last contest. He also stated that “I’m more intelligent than AJ, but sometimes I come across as arrogant because I’m a warrior.”
What Miller said, although sounds irritating, has a more significant part of the truth. At the fight, there is no such thing as being humble. Being humble will only lead to defeat and oppression.
Miller seems to want to prove that he deserves the titles. Back then on March 3rd, he also stated that he could take down Joshua in the 7th round. He set the mindset to take down the heavy hitter at the round seven. It is understandable since no one wants to ruin their excellent record. He expects the TKO when taking on Joshua who is holding the WBA, WBO, IBO, and IBF title.
