On September 16, the world was treated to a feast of boxing as the world's two finest middleweights put on an incredible show in Las Vegas.

Gennady Golovkin and Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez went the full 12 rounds, with each being subjected to some seriously powerful blows throughout the 36-minute bout.

Sadly, the fight was brought to a sour end as the judges ruled that the result as a draw, even though it appeared clear that Golovkin was the rightful winner.

Due to the shoddy judgement, the two are expected to partake in a rematch in the foreseeable future to see who really is the undisputed champion of the middleweight division.

After that fight - which will no doubt be yet another fantastic spectacle - the winner will have to decide who they will take on next.

If Canelo emerges victorious, one man he could fight is Daniel Jacobs, who was close to securing a points victory over Golovkin back in March, in what was undoubtedly the Kazakh's closest fight.

Jacobs is no stranger to confidence and he has made a hugely bold prediction should he come up against the Mexican in the ring, believing he would win by knockout.

"I say stoppage," Jacobs told "I really feel that coming into who I've become as a man, as an athlete, as a professional, I really feel that I can go in there and get the job done.

"What he brings to the table, and I'm not knocking anything, but size matters in boxing, physiques matter, it's different. I'm telling you it's different and I do see myself stopping Canelo."

Jacobs also spoke about the mega-fight, stating that he believed that Golovkin deserved the victory.

"Canelo didn't really show me anything that I didn't do first," said the former WBA 'regular' middleweight champion.

"And all credit to Canelo. I thought he went out there and fought his heart out, as best as he could, but I don't think he got the victory or even close to a draw.

"But, it's a totally different game in there. I'm a fully fledged middleweight. My confidence is through the roof now."

Talk about confidence, eh.
