Since signing both Daniel Jacobs and Canelo Alvarez to exclusive deals, DAZN has been looking to prove they are the premier source for boxing. Now, before the two face off in the ring on Cinco de Mayo weekend, they will have a chance to say a few words to one another. While the fight won’t be in New York City, it is only fitting the first stop of the press tour begins in The Big Apple.
Alvarez (51-1-2) will be defending his WBC, WBA, Lineal and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Titles while New York-born Jacobs (35-2) will be defending his recently won IBF Middleweight Title.
With Golden Boy Promotions involved, will there be some controversy to start things off? With both fighters being notoriously respectable men on the mic, the hype for the fight may very well be a small tuneup for the rest of the tour.
You can watch Alvarez v Jacobs , taking place inside the Hard Rock Cafe in NYC in the link below. Tickets for Canelo v. Jacobs, taking place inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, via YouTube and Twitter. Fight Sports is also live streaming the event.
When and where is the Canelo vs Jacobs live stream fight?
The fight takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, 4th May. The arena is something of a home for Canelo – and will be even more so considering the bout is on Cinco de Mayo weekend.
What time will the ring walks be?
As this one is in Vegas, expect it to be no earlier than 4.30am – possibly even 5.

It’ll be live on DAZN as that’s who both fighters are with – and in the UK it’ll be shown on Sky Sports, so if you’re a subscriber you get this one as part of your package
