WBC Prez Overjoyed By Canelo-DAZN Deal: Time To Celebrate!

WBC Prez Overjoyed By Canelo-DAZN Deal: Time To Celebrate!

Canelo is scheduled to face British boxer Rocky Fielding on December 15 in his first defense of his newly-won WBA title.

Whilst Alvarez will still fight under the Golden Boy banner, his connection to DAZN could allow for fights with English fighters signed with Hearn.

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.

Now fans can pay significantly less - $9.99 subscription cost per month in the US - to see his fights on DAZN (pronounced Da-Zone).

Alvarez's deal is the richest athlete contract in sports history, eclipsing the 13-year, $325 million agreement that batter Giancarlo Stanton signed in 2014 with the Miami Marlins.

The feud between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather is getting extremely personal - and nasty - with Oscar now calling out Floyd's domestic violence conviction to humiliate him. "The 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".

Alvarez and Britain's Fielding will hold a news conference in NY on Wednesday to promote their fight at Madison Square Garden. "The most important thing is that fans can enjoy this fight at a very low price". "I know Canelo is an elite fighter, but I'm going in there as a champion to defend my title and walk away with the victory".

"Look, I just want the best fights", he said. 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. Now Alvarez will seek to join a small and illustrious list of three-division world champions from Mexico as he steps up to 168 pounds to challenge Fielding.

Alvarez, 28, outpointed middleweight destroyer Gennady Golovkin in their September PPV rematch, which also marked his last bout with HBO after the premium cable network announced it was ceasing boxing coverage after 45 years.
