After weeks of anticipation and build up, Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs delivered for fight fans in Las Vegas. The pair of top middleweights battled it out over 12 grueling rounds from the T-Mobile Arena with Alvarez walking away the unified champion at 160 pounds via unanimous decision.
The Mexican superstar looked the part, though at times did get challenged by the bigger and more physically imposing Jacobs. After the fight, Alvarez wouldn't commit to what would come next, but left the door open to the possibility of a trilogy bout with rival Gennady Golovkin should GGG be successful against Steve Rolls in June.
