    Hey guys ...just wondering what's everyone's opinion on canelo vs Jacobs in less then a month ?!?

    Besides a canelo vs GGG trilogy , this us the best fight possible in the division .

    Heavy hitting champ vs heavy hitting champ , both with razor tight controversial fights with GGG.

    Jacobs is a super live dog .... Obviously it seems like you gotta k Ock out canelo to beat him , and he has an iron chin ... But this fight is crazy close !

    It's an amazing fight and I've heard no hype / builduo or promotion ....


    What's everyone's take ? This is a sick fight ... A very dangerous fight and a very winnable fight for Jacobs

    Surprised DAZN isn't promoting it more ?

    Jacobs did very well against GGG.

    definitely a live Dog...

    but I have Canelo via 8th round TKO

    Loyal diehard fans know this is a great fight ... But are casuals even aware ?.... Are people buying this fight ? .... It's way better then Spence Garcia .... Better then Pacman .... Yet no promotion that I've seen ... No threads here that I've seen

    Are people not pumped ?

    This is a crazy fight to me ... And I think Jacobs size and skill is being over looked
    .. if he's an underdog I'd pick him ...I thought he was a draw vs GGG .... And people think GGG beat canelo .... So Jacobs is definitely in it to win it ..... This is a fight fans fight !

    They seem to be promoting it on their boxing and mma broadcasts, but I don’t know what they are doing outside DAZN to get the word out. I’m worried the biggest star in boxing might be disappearing into a streaming service black hole.

    This fight is the best kept secret in combat sports. Looks like the undercard is going to be decent (Vergil Ortiz, David Lemieux, etc). I'm really hoping for DAZN to succeed, and they need a big night here to increase their public profile.

    Canelo can't be fucked with and Jacobs seems to be a guy who;s gonna plod through this era as a forgotton talent that had the goods but didin't have that IT factor to put him over.
    He'll will be remembered as the guy who maybe almost beat GGG.

    But I have Canelo by devasting KO.
    Something in the air that makes me think that Canelo ends this by the 8th round

    I like DAZN, but the way they are hemorraging money with no great promotion to take advantage of this major asset.

    Canelo has had some high profile fights
    Mayweather, GGG, Chavez Jr. GGG 2,

    Kinda hard to get too excited for this one

    jacobs’ chin is such a question mark. took hard shots from GGG and walked through quillin but mora hurt him bad and pirog slept him with one shot. i’d guess he probably can’t take canelo’s punches but i said the same thing going into the golovkin fight so we’ll see what happens. one of the better fights of the year.

    It's hard to get excited for one of the best matchups of any division currently?

    Weird. If you don’t build up the best fight we may have this year, you don’t build up any fight.

    We all know Canelo’s current level and shape. This one is all on Jacobs. He can be overwhelmed if he isn’t 100% but since he rose to the occasion against GGG I think he’ll be as good as he can possibly be.

    Staying in front of Canelo is bound to fail but Jacobs has the legs and reach to stick and move successfully. This will be closer than people may think.

    Canelo has improved a lot in the past few years, but I think this fight is closer than some. Canelo doesn’t look good against boxers who keep their range. Floyd, Lara and Trout all come to mind (though that’s a really weird fight that open scoring ruined).

    Guys who knock down Jacobs do it by pressuring him. Canelo might be able to do it - he showed he has good skills moving forward in the second Golovkin fight. But Golovkin and Pirog used footwork to get Jacobs feet mixed up. Canelo doesn’t really do that.


    I think Canelo wins but by close decision. Round or two.

    Jacobs shocks the world, or gets robbed in points
    I don’t see Canelo outboxing it stopping Jacobs

    It doesnt really matter because DAZN is a paid subscription channel that has already been paid for by the subscribers. The fighters already have guaranteed money there's no reliance on PPV anymore to get numbers up. Maybe advertise to get more subscriptions by pumping the fight but I guess their pockets are deep enough to not bother spending on a lot of promotion. Don't forget guys marketing and buying advertising time on network channels costs a shit ton of money.

    More subs, especially the one month Variety to capture as much $ as they can from the card.

    It's why DAZN is just not the place to be right now. They have no avenue of marketing...outside of online, yet their social media presence is severely lacking as well.

    If this was on FOX it would be shoved down everyone's throats. Look at the buildup Spence vs Garcia got and how much that sold (first time PPV for both and it did well)

    Spence/Garcia had.....5x weekends straight of Press Conferences, Face to Face and Fight Camp/Countdown shows..on the main FOX channel, and then countless replays on FS1. Not to mention the commercials on the main FOX.

    Even ESPN is somewhat lacking with the Crawford/Khan build up...although they are coming out with a Countdown show very soon.

    At the end of the day...I like fights like Jacobs/Canelo to be on a more mainstream platform (FOX, Showtime, ESPN etc). Having a fight of this magnitude on DAZN just feels like an underground/backwards move...especially with the momentum boxing has picked up over the last 2-3 years.
