Daniel Jacobs drew attention when he became the first boxer to last 12-rounds against Gennady Golovkin. Following the controversial draw between Canelo Alvarez and GGG, the 30-year-old believes he can easily dispose of the Mexican via stoppage.

The former WBA regular middleweight champion was at ringside when Golovkin and Alvarez battled to a draw. According to the American, Alvarez didn’t really do anything better compared to what he previously accomplished. He did credit Canelo for the performance but believed he barely came close to a draw. Can Jacobs do better if he gets another chance to face Golovkin?

Jacobs ready if rematch talks bog down

Daniel Jacobs is set to face Luis Arias on Nov. 11 in New York. This would be his first match since that unanimous decision loss to Golovkin. Expectations are high on the “The Golden Child” where a win could boost his chances of facing GGG once again.

Seeing that the priority right now is a rematch between GGG and Alvarez, it could be a long wait for the “Miracle Man.” But what if gets the chance to face the Mexican?

Right now, a potential Alvarez vs Jacobs fight seems pretty remote. Star-power is seen as one factor though the 30-year-old middleweight can slowly build his reputation with a big win over Arias.

Assuming that is covered, Jacobs sees himself stopping the Mexican brawler.

He believes he has the advantage in size and that this will give Canelo plenty of problems.

Right now, discussions between the Golovkin and Alvarez camp are underway, Boxingscene.com reported. According to Golden Boy Promotions president Eric Gomez, nothing will stand in the way of the highly anticipated sequel. May 2018 is seen as the most likely date though holding it March has not been ruled out.

Jacobs vs Alvarez a long shot for now

Unless something comes up to foil those plans, the chances of Jacobs getting the call are close to nil. Hence, the next best thing is working his way up and hoping his run will be noticed. After lasting 12 rounds with the Kazakh KO artist, Jacobs may want to divert his attention on other big names in the middleweight division.

There are plenty of names to target. The list includes Kell Brook, Terence Crawford, Chris Eubank Jr., Billy Joe Saunders, Jesse Vargas and Amir Khan. Most of the names mentioned are high-profile boxers and Jacobs may need a couple of more fights to be added to the mix.

Lasting 12 rounds with Golovkin is an achievement, showing any fighter can last with GGG with the right fight plan. However, it still goes down as a win for the Kazakhstan and a loss to Jacobs’ fight record.
