“No way Canelo Alvarez hits harder than Gennady Golovkin,” says Daniel Jacobs

Daniel Jacobs believes there is no way that Canelo Alvarez can hit harder than Gennady Golovkin. Jacobs lost a controversial split decision to Gennady Golovkin in 2017, while Alvarez twice defeated Golovkin in disputed decisions. “People said GGG hit too hard and I took everything he had and there’s no way that Canelo hits that hard,” Jacobs told Sky Sports. “He’s a smaller middleweight than me and I may have to adjust to his size and speed in the early going, but even though he holds most of the belts and it’s largely his titles we’re fighting for, I already see myself as the best middleweight out there and the whole world will agree with me after I’ve defeated Canelo. “One hundred percent I’m the best middleweight out there right now. “I went in there with Golovkin, the monster who no one wanted to face, and most would agree that I was the one who boxed better throughout and that my hand should’ve been raised. “Golovkin has then gone on to defeat Canelo twice in my opinion, and although the official results say otherwise, I take a lot from my fight with Golovkin, and Golovkin’s fights with Canelo to believe that I’m the best middleweight there is right now. May 4th in Vegas is when you see me make it official.” Jacobs face Canelo for the WBC, WBA and IBF middleweight titles on May 4 in Las Vegas.
