The short 5’8? Canelo has no choice but to pressure the much taller 5’11 1/2? Jacobs in this fight. The size difference between the two fighters is extreme.

Jacobs is in a strong position to get the win on Saturday based on his size, talent and the scrutiny the judges are going to be under from the boxing public. The set of judges that have been selected for the Canelo vs. Jacobs fight are the same set of three that worked the Canelo vs. Golovkin rematch last September.
