Daniel Jacobs: I’d knock Canelo out

Daniel Jacobs spoke after the Canelo-GGG rematch about the fight and his desire to face Canelo.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Middleweight contender Daniel Jacobs, who returns October 27 in a vacant title fight against Sergiy Derevyanchenko on HBO, was in attendance on Saturday night in Las Vegas, when Canelo Alvarez narrowly defeated Gennady Golovkin.

Jacobs, of course, had a couple things to say.

“Good fight. I thought GGG won (by) two rounds, at least, I think. I don’t know, it’s just, I’m not — I wasn’t being biased, but I felt like Golovkin was a lot busier than Canelo,” he said. “Even though Canelo still had his spurts where he looked good and there was a lot of close rounds. People say it could’ve went either way. I gotta go back to the tape, really review it, really study it, and make my decision then. But off my initial reaction, I thought Golovkin one.”

Asked about wanting to see a trilogy, he laughed and said, “Come on, hell no, I don’t want no trilogy, man! Let me get my opportunity!”

Jacobs (34-2, 29 KO) was then asked about potentially facing Canelo, and he put out a clear message.

“I’d stop Canelo, I’d knock Canelo out. It don’t matter what round. Put him in there and I’ll knock him out,” Jacobs said.
