Daniel Jacobs is quite confident of knocking out Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez if they ever fight in the future, due to his size advantage.
The American boxer lost to Golovkin by close points and watched with interest as Alvarez claimed a controversial draw against the Kazakh.
Jacobs recently signed with boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn, who is eager to set up a fight with the winner of the rematch between Golovkin and Alvarez and the American is sure of a victory if he faces the Mexican.
“I say stoppage,” Jacobs told Boxingscene.com. “I really feel that coming into who I’ve become as a man, as an athlete, as a professional, I really feel that I can go in there and get the job done.
“What he brings to the table, and I’m not knocking anything, but size matters in boxing, physiques matter, it’s different. I’m telling you it’s different and I do see myself stopping Canelo.”
Jacobs, who is due to return in November, did not think Alvarez deserved a draw and insists he lay the blueprint for a fight against Golovkin.
“Canelo didn’t really show me anything that I didn’t do first,” said the former WBA ‘regular’ middleweight champion.
“And all credit to Canelo. I thought he went out there and fought his heart out, as best as he could, but I don’t think he got the victory or even close to a draw.
“But, it’s a totally different game in there. I’m a fully fledged middleweight. My confidence is through the roof now.”
