Social media! I just love this stuff. Tonight in Las Vegas, Canelo Alvarez beat Daniel Jacobs by unanimous decision to unify the WBC, WBA, and IBF titles, as well as retaining his Ring Magazine championship at 160 pounds.
Boxers aren’t the most active folks on Twitter throughout fights, partly because a lot of them are at the fight or maybe they have some kind of promotional directive to not acknowledge something that isn’t done by their company, but this sort of goofy crap just does WILD numbers for MMA sites, where the fighters are generally way more hip to the social media game, so we’re gonna do it now, too, at least sometimes.
Anyway, here’s some tweets on the Canelo vs Jacobs outcome from fighters, people in The Biz, and what have you.

Can’t be mad with those scores, Jacobs started a little slow like he did against GGG.— Ishé Oluwa Kamau Ali Smith (@IsheSugarShay) May 5, 2019

Canelo by 2 rounds for me!— sean mc comb (@sugarseantl) May 5, 2019
Congrats to Canelo for the win, a solid performance. Danny fought well in spots and I think won 5 rounds, maybe 4. Not a great fight, but well fought and interesting.— Al Bernstein (@AlBernstein) May 5, 2019
