Canelo Alvarez inks $365M deal with sports-streaming service

Canelo Alvarez inks $365M deal with sports-streaming service

'If he wants to make the fight then he can deal directly with me, but I'm going to post things on Instagram offending people'.

ESPN reported that Alvarez's fights on DAZN would not be shown on pay-per-view.

Mayweather beat the star via a unanimous points decision in 2013, when Alvarez, with his lack of experience, tried to out-box one of the best boxers of the modern era rather than stick to the high-pressure style he was accustomed to.

It makes the middleweight world champion the highest paid sportsperson in the world, according to his promoter Oscar De La Hoya.

Boxer Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is about to become very, very rich.

Alvarez steps up to super-middleweight to fight Britain's Rocky Fielding in NY on 15 December - his first fight under the DAZN deal.

A subscription in the United States will cost $9.99 under the five-year term with Golden Boy, which will also oversee another ten fights that will stream on DAZN in 2019.

Fresh off signing a $365 million contract with DAZN to make him the signee of the biggest contract in sports history, he wasted no time angling for a fight with Floyd Mayweather.

"It's very important for me to give the fans the biggest fights and the most important fights, and I promise you I will always do that".

"The December fight with Fielding is a risky fight".

'I don't know why it bugged him, but I defeated him in that aspect'.

He successfully walked down Gennady Golovkin in their heated rematch last month en route to a unanimous victory over his rival, exorcising his detractors who wondered if he could defeat "GGG" clean. It cost $84.95 to be seen in high definition. "Forget about what the price is, the amount of money that we're making".

ESPN's new ESPN+ service, which is $4.99 a month, is also expanding its boxing selection, most recently in a seven-year deal with Bob Arum's Top Rank promotions, which reps Manny Pacquiao, Jose Benavidez and Terence Crawford.

The DAZN-Golden Boy deal includes a large production element, which places Oscar De La Hoya as Executive Producer of the 12 live fight nights annually.
