Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez will meet Daniel Jacobs to unify their 160-pound world titles on May 4 -- Cinco de Mayo weekend -- at a venue to be determined, the fighters announced Thursday.
"I'm happy to announce my next fight during the festive weekend of Cinco de Mayo," Alvarez said. "I will unify my middleweight titles against Daniel Jacobs on one of the two most important dates that belong to me. I have no doubt that I will be victorious and that I'll be one step away from becoming the undisputed middleweight world champion."
***NOBODY can now claim Canelo is ducking anyone at 160 lbs. This is a great matchup for both. Best name recognition at 160 lbs that can be made besides Canelo/GGG 3.
