    May 4: Canelo Alvarez vs Daniel Jacobs for 160 unification

    What a good fight.

    Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez will meet Daniel Jacobs to unify their 160-pound world titles on May 4 -- Cinco de Mayo weekend -- the fighters announced Thursday.

    The venue for the fight is still to be determined but is likely to be T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, site of four of Alvarez's past six fights.

    Other than a third fight with former unified champion Gennady Golovkin, an Alvarez bout with Jacobs, who is widely considered the No. 3 middleweight in the world, is easily the biggest in the 160-pound division.

    "I'm happy to announce my next fight during the festive weekend of Cinco de Mayo," Alvarez said. "I will unify my middleweight titles against Daniel Jacobs on one of the two most important dates that belong to me. I have no doubt that I will be victorious and that I'll be one step away from becoming the undisputed middleweight world champion."

    After Alvarez narrowly outpointed Golovkin by majority decision in their rematch on Sept. 15 in the biggest fight of 2018, he signed an athlete-record $365 million deal with DAZN, moving on from the world of pay-per-view and an expiring contract with HBO, which exited the boxing business at the end of the year.
