Have you yet heard that it’s Canelo-Jacobs fight week? Well, it is! People interested in these big fight weeks with boxing largely don’t seem to much care until fight day itself, which is pretty understandable, but for you diehards, we had the Grand Arrivals on Tuesday.

I’ve said a lot of good things about DAZN, but boy, they need to learn from this one, maybe take some notes from when Showtime was doing live coverage of the Grand Arrivals before fights. Even though I believe this is the dumbest event to stream live in all of fight week, other than maybe media workouts, if you’re going to do it, probably spend a few bucks to not have the background of every on-stage interview be confused people checking in to the hotel.

Anyway, what we learned from the Grand Arrivals:

We also had a full preview of Canelo vs Jacobs, and Michael Woods spoke with Jacobs’ trainer Andre Rozier about preparations for Saturday. And the second episode of “40 Days” dropped, which you can watch in full right here.

TODAY, we’ll have live coverage of the Canelo-Jacobs main event press conference, which will begin at 3 pm ET. We’ll have a live stream for you, and you can also watch on DAZN and Facebook.

Aside from Canelo-Jacobs, we also heard from Vasiliy Lomachenko on Tuesday, who has stern words (and a bit of a warning) for Teofimo Lopez, and talks about Gervonta Davis, Mikey Garcia, the WBC title situation at 135, and more.
