Canelo Alvarez wins unanimous decision over Daniel Jacobs

0

Canelo Alvarez sought to out-box a boxer. He did that, and, in the end, also didn’t bow to a significant size disadvantage.

Mexico’s Alvarez added a third middleweight belt to his collection Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena by defeating Brooklyn’s Daniel Jacobs by judges’ scores of 115-113, 115-113 and 116-112.

By taking Jacobs’ former International Boxing Federation middleweight belt, Alvarez (52-1-2) was especially sharp in piling up early rounds. After the perhaps 20-pounds-bigger Jacobs answered, Alvarez didn’t wilt to the bigger man and leaned on his strong uppercuts and power to close the show.
