The IBF World middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (35-2-0) was 3 kilograms heavier than his next opponent WBC and WBA “Super” middleweight champ Saul Alvarez (51-1-2). The mega-fight between the two is staged for May 4 in Las Vegas and it will be broadcasted live by DAZN.
30 days prior to the fight, the two boxers passed the first pre-weigh-in. The second one will be in two weeks and the third pre-weigh-in is scheduled one week prior to the event. They are required in order to prevent sudden dehydration that causes serious damage to boxers.
