Canelo and Jacobs present WBC 14-day weigh in
Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 Ko’s), will defend his World Boxing Council middle title against Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs (35-2, 29 ko’s), during the festive weekend of Cinco de Mayo celebrations.
The fight will take place on Saturday May 4, 2019 and will be broadcast live exclusively by DAZN. “Canelo” passed the 14-day pre-weigh in by tipping 165.4 pounds, while Jacobs reported 166.8 pounds.
Pre-weigh ins of 30, 14 and 7 days prior to a fight sanctioned by the WBC, are required, in order to prevent sudden dehydration that may cause serious damage to boxers.
We congratulate both athletes for their professionalism and fulfilling these necessary requirements.
