Daniel Jacobs is back on the comeback trail and making his super middleweight debut tonight against Mexican old stager Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Read on to find out how to get a Jacobs vs Chavez Jr live stream, no matter where on Earth you are.
The pair share a common sore point, having both recently been defeated at middleweight level by the indestructible Canelo Álvarez, with Jacobs’ loss to the red-haired warrior coming in his last fight – a bitter points defeat back in May which saw him relinquish his IBF middleweight title.
Jacobs vs Chavez Jr – where and when
The Daniel Jacobs vs Julio Cesar Chavez Jr showdown will take place on Friday, December 20 at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona.
Ring walks for the main event are expected at around 9pm MST local time, so that’s a 11pm ET / 8pm PT start across the States and a predicted 4am GMT start for fight fans in the UK.
But Jacobs’s record still stands at an impressive 35 wins and three defeats and he’ll be looking to get things back on track against another Mexican. While Jacobs last five fights have gone to a decision, the American can still boast a formidable career knockout percentage of 83% and is widely expected to fare well moving up to 168 lbs in the super middleweight division.
The son of retired six-time world boxing champion Julio César Chávez and older brother of Omar Chávez, Chavez Jr is part of Mexican boxing royalty, but his defeat to Canelo back in 2017 may have been even more damaging than Jacobs’, with the 33-year-old having only fought once since that loss.
Despite his potential rustiness, in part thanks to his evasion of VADA drug tests which saw him serve a suspension, it shouldn’t be discounted that Chavez Jr was once a dominant force as a middleweight champion, clocking up 46 wins before his damaging Canelo defeat.
