  Miracle On Cinco De Mayo From The Miracle Man?

By Raymundo Dioses


On March 4, 2019, International Boxing Federation champion Daniel ‘The Miracle Man’ Jacobs shared the red carpet at the Microsoft Theatre in downtown Los Angeles with his opponent, Canelo Alvarez, in advance of their May 4, 2019 middleweight title showdown.

The international press tour began in Jacobs’ home-state of New York, went South of the Border to Canelo’s home-country of Mexico, then landed and ended in the City of Angeles. Jacobs was all smiles at the press-fan friendly event and exuded the confidence that will be needed once he steps into the ring with Canelo, the WBA, WBC and Ring Magazine title holder in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"This is my opportunity to prove what I have been saying, that I am the best middleweight in the world. Doing the impossible is not new to me. Ten years ago, I was in a wheelchair in the hospital. Fast forward to now and I'm fighting for middleweight supremacy. You can't make this story up, and I feel like this is my destiny,” said Jacobs, who gained the nickname ‘The Miracle Man’ following his successful fight against bone cancer earlier in his career.

Jacobs, (39-2, 29KO) is quick to reference his return to the ring following the cancer diagnosis which had shelved him for a period of time, only to return and become a champion.

Can the Miracle Man produce another miracle on May 4?

"I've looked death in the eyes. It happened when I was in the hospital bed with my back to the wall after doctors told me that I had cancer and would never box again. I've been through the toughest of all mental battles. I see it and feel it. Canelo hasn't faced and beaten an opponent like cancer, but I have, so to me I am already a victor."

Canelo vs. Jacobs takes place May 4, 2019 live on DAZN from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
