Andre Rozier: "Jacobs Will Prove He Is
The Master Of The Middleweight Division"

Chepo Reynoso: "Alvarez Is The
Best Middleweight In The World"

By Daniel Cloutier

LAS VEGAS, Nevada - Daniel Jacobs's trainer, the New Yorker Andre Rozier, is definitively impatient to see his fighter in action Saturday evening. Rozier has the conviction that his fighter will become the master of the 160 pounds division.

Saturday evening in the ring of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Jacobs, the IBF middleweight champion of the world, will face the Mexican Saul Canelo Alvarez, the WBC and WBA middleweight champion of the world, in a unification triple title bout.

“Alvarez and Daniel are the two best middleweights in the world, but in my heart, Daniel is gold,” said Rozier. “Daniel worked so hard to be perfectly prepared for this challenge. Watch him when the first bell will ring Saturday evening!”

“Daniel is so hungry to prove to the world that he is the real master of the middleweight division, and I am positive he will achieve it. Alvarez has a great reputation, but trust me, nobody can intimidate Daniel, nobody. No doubt in man mind, Saturday, when he will get out of the ring, Daniel will be the real master of the 160 pounds division.”

Alvarez has an impressive record of 51-1-2, with 35 wins by KO or TKO. Jacobs has a record of 35-2-0, with 29 wins by KO or TKO.

Alvarez’s trainer, Chepo Reynoso, is clearly confident to see his boxer in the winning’s circle Saturday evening. “Canelo is the best middleweight on the planet,” said Reynoso. “Canelo is superbly prepared for this fight, mentally, physically, technically and strategically. Canelo is persuaded he will be the real king of the middleweight division Saturday evening, and I have exactly the same conviction.”

September 18th 2018 in the ring of the T-Mobile Arena, Alvarez caused a surprise in beating Gennady Golovkin by majority decision of the judges in a WBC and WBA middleweight championship of the world. At that moment, several boxing writers around the world were considering Golovkin (38-1-1), a boxer from Kazakstan, as the best fighter pound for pound in the world.

When Golovkin was contacted to make a prediction of this fight Alvarez-Jacobs, he smiled. “I am sorry, but I cannot predict the result of this bout,” said Golovkin. “The two fighters are good, but they have different styles, different techniques. I am pretty impatient to see what will happen Saturday evening in the ring of the T-Mobile Arena.”
