  • Canelo Alvarez Wants Floyd Mayweather Rematch, Stop Hurting Boxing!

But, if it doesn't happen, Canelo tells us he's down for a 3rd fight with Gennady Golovkin - and in the meantime, he's prepping for his December 15 fight against Rocky Fielding at Madison Square Garden. That fight was shown on HBO pay-per-view.

The Mexican was a free agent in terms of a TV partner after HBO Boxing pulled out of the sport and it now appears as if the new streaming service has won the race for one of, if not the biggest, fish in the fight world.

The deal also dictates that Golden Boy put on ten "high-calibre" fight nights per year that will stream on DAZN from 2019.

The 28-year-old Alvarez, who holds both the WBA and WBC middleweight crowns, is coming off a victory in his rematch Gennady Golovkin last month, which netted him around $50 million.

Golden Boy Promotions' Oscar De La Hoya had announced that negotiations to find Canelo a new home would be getting underway immediately - and he wasn't lying. "It's very important. We have something pending there, so let's make the second fight".

Boxer Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is set to become the highest paid athlete in the world. "You've only got one pay per view fighter in America, Canelo Alvarez, and he's gone (from pay per view)".

Skipper promised fight fans will be able to buy fights "for a lot less expensive than they did before". "But I always want to take on challenges, and I am very happy my fans will be able to see me fight at a small cost".

That deal included a total of 16 bouts each year across the U.S. on top of Matchroom's existing 16 fight nights in the UK.

DAZN, which is owned by the United Kingdom -based Perform Group and overseen by former ESPN president John Skipper, also signed an exclusive deal with the World Boxing Super Series to stream a trio of tournaments promoted by Sauerland Events.

Globally, DAZN is a live and on-demand sports streaming service created by fans, for fans, that is leading the charge to provide access to sports anytime, anywhere.

Alvarez and Britain's Fielding will hold a news conference in NY on Wednesday to promote their fight at Madison Square Garden.
