WBC and WBA middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez 51-1-2 (34) says he is expecting a tough fight against IBF titleholder Daniel ‘Miracle Man’ Jacobs 35-2 (29) when the pair meet at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 4 streamed live on DAZN.

Speaking on the third leg of his three city promotional tour, the 28-year-old native of Guadalajara, Mexico, said he is looking forward to getting into camp to prepare for the fight that will be held on the weekend of Cinco de Mayo.

“It’s been a great tour New York, Mexico City, and now here in Los Angeles. Now it’s time to get ready and train for May 4th,” Alvarez told Fightnews. “It will be a complicated and difficult fight.

“It’s a huge motivation and I’m so proud to be fighting and representing Mexico and Mexican fight fans on these festive dates.”

Alvarez and the 32-year-old Jacobs from Brooklyn, New York will both stake their championship belts in the fight to determine the best boxer in the world at 160-pounds.

“We are the two best at 160 in the world. He is a world champion and I’m a world champion. This is the best vs. the best. My objective is to fight the best,” Alvarez said.

“He has lots of abilities and experience. It will be a complicated fight. He is a difficult and complete opponent. However, we will study him in camp and in the ring it will be different.

“The plan will be to get inside but not straight forward. I can fight different styles. It all depends on the opponent but I have to adapt. I just try to make the best fights.”

Earlier, Alvarez discussed a conversation he had with trainer Eddy Reynoso about becoming the first Mexican to hold all four major recognised world titles.

“Jacobs is our first objective to make history and winning all four belts. Whoever the champs are, that’s the objective,” Alvarez said.

“He represents a challenge and stands in my way to make history. To be the best, you have to beat the best.

“I take risky fights. Win or lose. I will give a great fight. May 4th I’m coming to win.”
