Canelo signs richest ever sports contract

Floyd Mayweather sent Alvarez to his sole professional defeat in September 2013

Mayweather hasn't fought since August 2017, when he beat UFC superstar Conor McGregor via 10th-round TKO in their much-hyped boxing superfight. DAZN is charging its subscribers $9.99 per month, which - over time - translates to substantially less than the $85 pay-per-views to which boxing fans have become accustomed.

Alvarez's 11-fight deal is the richest in sporting history.

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez says he has signed an "historic" contract after agreeing a reported £278m ($365m) deal with streaming service DAZN.

Alvarez's fights have always been shown on HBO thanks to the premium cable network's agreement with Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions.

Floyd then implored his fans on social media to "leave the most disrespectful caption you can think of" about Oscar. "The most important thing to me was being able to give the fans the opportunity to see me fight without having to pay the US$70 or US$80 for my fights on pay-per-view". Alvarez said for now his plan is to return to 160 after the bout against Fielding (27-1, 15 KOs), a British fighter who appeared significantly taller than Alvarez, who will be trying to win a title in his third weight class.

Yesterday we learned that in the United States, Netflix added 1.09 million new subscribers and 3.91 million internationally. During the quarter, Netflix reported a 4.8 percent jump in net income, to $402.8 million, or 89 cents a share.

"He said, our first meeting with him over two weeks ago, he came to our office and said, 'I've got a blank check, I'm not leaving until we make a deal.' And he put his money where his mouth is".

"Being part of this historic deal will require me to prepare myself even more and offer fans even better performances".

Floyd went after Oscar earlier Thursday - posting an old photo of De La Hoya wearing fishnet stockings and heels - and saying, "I fought her and her name is Oscar "Golden Girl" Dela Hoya". I am very grateful to HBO and to Showtime for what they did for my career, but I am happy we're moving forward and that I will be able to fight on a platform that is the future.

Canelo is fresh off a victory against Gennady Golovkin which made him top dog in the middleweight division and one of the biggest stars in the world meaning it is a major coup for DAZN.

Alvarez, 28, is from Mexico.
