Alvarez vs Jacobs Fight date, time, buy tickets, how to watch
Alvarez vs Jacobs fight takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, 4th May.
After two epic fights against Gennady Golovkin, Canelo stepped up to the super middleweight division and dismantled Great Britain's own Rocky Fielding to become a three-weight world champion but comes back down in weight as he looks to add yet another big name to his glowing record of opponents defeated.
Meanwhile, the fighter known as 'Miracle Man' hopes to make the first defence of the IBF title he won against Serhiy Derevianchenko.
David Lemieux has had trouble making weight at 160 recently. He missed weight but still fighting Karim Achour in May 2018, after which it was reported that he would move up, but he didn't, staying at 160 to knock out Spike O'Sullivan in September.
In December, he had to be hospitalized trying to make weight, and his fight against Tureano Johnson was pulled a day before it was set to be part of the Canelo-Rocky undercard. That may have cost Lemieux more than just the December payday, as it was assumed by most that with a win over Johnson, he would be Canelo's May 4 opponent, as the company had made clear that they weren't looking for Alvarez to face Daniel Jacobs next. When Lemieux fell through, Jacobs became really their only option, and we got that fight.
But now, Lemieux is looking set to officially move up to super middleweight for a fight with John Ryder on the Canelo-Jacobs card in Las Vegas, which will stream live on DAZN. The fight was first rumored in January, and now looks like it's a done deal, or close enough that everyone has confidence it will be soon.
Lemieux (40-4, 34 KO) has had a somewhat rocky career, but his huge punching power at middleweight has kept him in the game. On his way up, he was exposed a bit in back-to-back 2011 losses to Marco Antonio Rubio and Joachim Alcine, but bounced back to win nine fights over the next four years, and grabbed the IBF middleweight title with a win over Hassan N'dam in 2015.
