Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez defeated Daniel Jacobs via unanimous decision to unify the middleweight division at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. He now holds the WBC, WBA and IBF middleweight championship of the world.

The judges Dave Moretti and Steve Weisfeld scored it 115-113. Glenn Feldman scores it 116-112. The fight, however, was by no means easy for Canelo, as even though he dominated the first half of the fight with his slick defence and head movement, Jacobs came back strong in the second half of the fight and gave the Mexican star a lot of problems.

The championship round was the deciding factor in the fight. In the final round, Canelo started aggressively landing straight jabs and combinations. Canelo finished strong, landing a few shots to the head and body.

Now Canelo has three of the four middleweight titles. The WBO middleweight title is with Demetrius Andrade and it’s possible that Canelo fights him next for the undisputed middleweight championship of the world.

Punches Landed/Thrown:

Alvarez: 188/466 (40.3%)

Jacobs: 131/649 (20.2%)

This was DAZN’s first major fight. Canelo made a staggering $35 Million for this bout and Daniel Jacobs is supposed to make over $10 Million for this fight.
