In an interview with Fight Hub TV, Jacobs said he had a different opinion compared to what the judges ultimately decided: a majority decision win over Alvarez. As a result, Alvarez won the WBA "super," WBC and Ring Magazine middleweight titles. Jacobs, on the other hand, actually scored the fight in favor of Golovkin.
“I thought GGG won. [I think he won] two rounds [a 116-112 score], at least, I think. I wasn’t being biased, but I felt like Golovkin was a lot busier than Canelo,” he said. "People say it could’ve went either way. I gotta go back to the tape, really review it, really study it, and make my decision then. But off my initial reaction, I thought Golovkin won," Jacobs said.
When he was asked whether he would love to see a third fight between the two middleweight stars, Jacobs said he doesn't want to see that and would much rather take a crack at Alvarez. Jacobs said he believes he can knock out the new unified middleweight champion.
"I don’t want no trilogy, man! Let me get my opportunity! I’d stop Canelo, I’d knock Canelo out. It don’t matter what round. Put him in there and I’ll knock him out," Jacobs said.
Jacobs won a title eliminator back in April for the WBA title currently owned by Alvarez, but since then, Jacobs got himself an opportunity to fight for the vacant IBF title against Sergiy Derevyanchenko. That fight will take place in October at Madison Square Garden.
