Canelo Alvarez vs. Daniel Jacobs fight start time, live stream, how to Watch Online
The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada will be bubbling with anticipation on Saturday night ahead of boxing’s biggest bout so far in 2019. WBA and WBC middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez will put his belts on the line when he takes on IBF champion Daniel Jacobs in a unification fight on Cinco de Mayo weekend.
Date: Saturday, May 4
Time: 9 p.m. ET | Location: T-Mobile Arena — Las Vegas
Live stream: DAZN (Watch exclusively here)
Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs) will be facing a formidable test in Jacobs (35-2, 29 KOs) as he makes his second appearance under the DAZN banner since signing a blockbuster 10-fight, $365 million deal with the upstart streaming service last fall. The two were so amped up for Saturday’s action that they nearly got into on Friday during the staredown after the weigh-in ceremony.
The winner of Saturday’s bout will likely get a chance at facing newly signed TV free agent Gennady Golovkin, who has faced off with both fighters in the last two years. Jacobs lost a close decision to GGG in 2017 while Canelo won a unanimous decision in their rematch after the first fight was declared a majority draw.
