The boxing world was buzzing during and after Canelo Alvarez defeated Daniel Jacobs.
The middleweight title unification was the talk of social media with many fighters and pundits giving their take on the fight. Canelo unified the WBA "Super," WBC and IBF middleweight titles with a unanimous decision win in the main event of a DAZN card from Las Vegas.
Perhaps no name took social media by storm when talking about the fight more than Gennadiy Golovkin, who was unimpressed with the action taking place at the T-Mobile Arena. Golovkin has a lot of interest in the fight as a potential third fight against Alvarez could be in the works down the line now that both fighters compete on DAZN.
Below are reactions from the boxing world, including Golovkin's, on Canelo vs. Jacobs:

Congrats to Canelo for the win, a solid performance. Danny fought well in spots and I think won 5 rounds, maybe 4. Not a great fight, but well fought and interesting.— Al Bernstein (@AlBernstein) May 5, 2019
