Canelo v Jacobs

  • Latest update: Apologies for errors yesterday, due to php resource allocation needs configuring to suit the server, and can only do that when we know what's not working.

    There should be no more errors now, but there might be a bit more configuring required. If you get any error 500's or other errors browsing, please send me a pm with your ip address, time of error (and your timezone if not uk), and the page you're trying to access.

    Should be leading to some big performance increase and new features. Thanks to everyone for patience and support.

Hard to go against Canello. Jacobs would probably have to stop him and l don't anticipate that happening.

Yeah, Jacobs is a quality operator, but it's got to be a stoppage for him to win and I can't see that, would love to see him do it though

Holy shit, very good fight. To me, I think Jacobs has an enormous stylistic advantage here. Huge props if Canelo wins this without fishy scorecards. I think this is a lot tougher than GGG too. Canelo/GGG were made for each other.

By the way, Jacobs does deserve this fight. I have to wonder what GGG will be doing, though. I'm assuming we'll see GGG/Canelo: III in September if both win their early 2019 fights.

I'd favor Canelo if he took on the pre-GGG Jacob. Now Jacob knows he belongs in the top and took the best of GGG, I'd have to favor Jacob getting robbed after winning 9/12 convincing rounds.

Jacobs is 100% a live dog in this fight, and has a great style as mentioned, really interested in this fight!

City Of Angels!
going to be a close fight due to styles, but i think canelo will get a KD to differentiate himself from a close fight.

im thinking trout, lara, closely contested and debatle...

so i hope canelo goes for the ko.

Canelo/Jacobs to have rehydration clause. Didn't Jacobs/Derev have one too? I can't remember. If so, and Danny can't come in huge like he did with GGG, it won't be beneficial for him.

Doesn't the WBC automatically have that new rehydration clause rule? Sucks for Jacobs because he had a huge advantage over Golovkin not participating in that second weigh in. Helped him a lot in that fight.

Fuck, Idk. Canelo has really evolved into a slick puncher, even ggg was gun shy. I wanna pull for Jacobs, the dude can box but also isn't scared to brawl it out.

I wouldn't make a bet on this one

Good fight. Canelo for me. I think he has the styles advantage. Jacobs’ jabbing and moving is going to be negated by the head movement, slipping, angles, combination punching etc.

When it comes to the exchanges, Jacobs is a good fighter, so it will be contested well, but Canelo is just too technically skilled in that department.

It won’t be a whitewash. It will be a good fight I reckon, but clear for Canelo.

Canelo is a quality operator and so is Jacobs, if this goes the distance which i will Canelo will win no matter what.
Great fight non the less, looking forward to it.
