Boxing Superstar Canelo Alvarez Set To Be The World's Highest Paid Athlete After Signing A Blockbuster Deal Of $365 Million With DAZN On Wednesday morning boxing superstar Saul \u201cCanelo\u201d Alvarez scored the massive paydays in the history of sports when he signed a record-breaking $365 million deal with sports streaming service DAZN which spans next five years for 11 fights, according to Canelo\u2019s promoter Golden Boy Promotions. https:\/\/twitter.com\/GoldenBoyBoxing\/status\/1052591734054690818 Canelo's debut on DAZN will occur on December 15 at Madison Square Garden against Rocky Fielding, and then likely fight again in early May. \u201cThis is only from my hard work,\u201d Alvarez told ESPN. \u201cThe most important thing to me was being able to give the fans the opportunity to see me fight without having to pay the $70 or $80 for my fights on pay-per-view. That was the most important thing, more important than what I am making.\u201d HBO was the former home for a unified middleweight world champion Alvarez, who ranks as the biggest pay-per-view (PPV) star in the sports post the boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao era. HBO is also getting out of the boxing business while a showtime Bob Atem is also following the same by early 2019. Alvarez\u2019s fight with GGG ended his contract with HBO. DAZN is currently launched only in the U.S. last month and is making a place in the combat sports like Bellator or Combate Americas. They inked an eight-year, with a massive $1 billion deal in May with Eddie Hearn\u2019s Matchroom Boxing. \u201cWe are thrilled to be exclusive partners with Golden Boy Promotions and Oscar De La Hoya,\u201d John Skipper, executive chairman of Perform Group, DAZN\u2019s parent company, told ESPN. \u201cBy bringing Canelo\u2019s fights to DAZN, we will turn his pay-per-view success into a growth engine for subscribers -- a truly transformational moment for our business and the entire industry.\u201d https:\/\/twitter.com\/GoldenBoyBoxing\/status\/1052608327031517184 Will you be watching Canelo's debut fight on DAZN this coming December?
