On Friday afternoon, WBA/WBC/lineal middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and IBF middleweight champion Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs made weight ahead of their unification showdown. Canelo (51-1-2, 35 KO’s) and Jacobs (35-2, 29 KO’s) will meet inside of the T-Mobile Arena, with the fight airing exclusively on DAZN.

This is by far one of the biggest fights of 2019 and you could sense the emotions at the weigh-in. Jacobs hit the scale weighing 160 pounds while Canelo came in at 159.5 pounds. Each man looks to be in pristine shape for a fight that will no doubt be challenging on many fronts.
