Canelo signs richest ever sports contract

According to ESPN, the agreement represents the richest athlete contract in sports history, eclipsing the US$325 million deal signed by Giancarlo Stanton in 2014 with Major League Baseball's (MLB) Miami Marlins. He has a 50-1-2 career record with 34 KOs. However, his fights on DAZN will not be part of a pay-per-view deal but will instead be accessible to viewers who pay $9.99 a month for a streaming service showing a package of combat sports.

Alvarez will fight 11 times as part of the deal, starting with December's super-middleweight bout in NY against Rocky Fielding.

Floyd Mayweather has taken time out from talking about Khabib Nurmagomedov to mug off Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on Instagram.

Mayweather aimed a swipe at Alvarez, who signed a £280million ($365m) eleven-fight deal with boxing's newest streaming service.

When asked why he didn't wait for the victor of the October 27 Danny Jacobs-Sergiy Derevyanchenko fight - especially considering that the former guaranteed that he would knock Alvarez out - Canelo's eyes widened for a moment, but he was largely unbothered. He should come back to me.

Nearly no one in the boxing industry noticed last May when former ESPN president John Skipper joined the streaming sports media firm Perform Group as its executive chairman. It cost $84.95 to be seen in high definition.

DAZN charges its subscribers United States dollars 9.99 per month for a range of combat sports content. It takes me 36 mins or less to make $300 million plus.

"It's very important for me to finish this year off strong", he told SN. It's also a testament to the ambitions of DAZN, pronounced "da-zone" and billed as "the Netflix of sports", and another sign that the pay-per-view era of boxing is rapidly waning. "They are going to want to watch his fights and they're going to get to buy them for a lot less expensive than they did before". 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.

The newly launched DAZN now has heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and Alvarez on its books.
