DAZN Exec: De La Hoya The Most Important Figure in PPV History

Boxer Canelo Alvarez Inks $365 Million Contract With Streaming Network DAZN, Richest Deal in the History of Sports Canelo Alvarez signs record-breaking $365 million deal with DAZN

'I don't have much more to say other than his experience beat me and he is a great fighter. De La Hoya told ESPN that in addition to Alvarez, Golden Boy signed an undisclosed deal to promote 10 cards annually on DAZN beginning in 2019.

The potentially good news for fight fans: Alvarez's bouts typically have cost around $80 apiece on pay per view, but the DAZN all-sports streaming service charges $9.99 a month and features an assortment of combat sports offerings, per ESPN.

"Today I am thrilled to be here as we announce the beginning of a new era in boxing and the USA harbinger of a global transformation to a fan-centered and fan-friendly presentation of sports in OTT subscription services". His next 11 fights will be available exclusively and internationally on DAZN. "We are committed to making this sport as accessible as possible and at an affordable price for all the fans".

Whilst Alvarez will still fight under the Golden Boy banner, his connection to DAZN could allow for fights with English fighters signed with Hearn. My dream has been to make boxing a sport for all. "He's extremely happy", Oscar De La Hoya, Alvarez's promoter, told ESPN after Alvarez signed early Wednesday. "DAZN has the flawless platform to make this dream come true, and with the biggest star in the sport at the helm of this journey, I have no doubts that we will succeed in unimaginable ways".

Donald Trump Props Up Ted Cruz
Cruz claimed that O'Rourke is the only Senate Democratic candidate this cycle who has explicitly supported Trump's impeachment. O'Rourke shot back: "It's really interesting to hear you talk about a partisan circus after your last six years in the U.S.

"I've always liked a challenge, and this is yet another challenger in my career", Alvarez said in a statement. "By bringing Canelo's 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". 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.

Canelo Alvarez, fresh off his razor-thin split decision "victory" over Gennady Golovkin, which, in this writer's opinion, was an absolute shambles of a result, has signed the highest-earning sports contract of all time.

Lionel Messi, who earned $111 million a year ago, is likely to be his main competition for the highest-earning athlete title, but reports indicate that Alvarez could have earned upwards of $120 million for 2018 by the time of his debut fight with DAZN.

The Perform-owned streaming services signed an eight-year deal with United Kingdom promoter Eddie Hearn earlier this year worth $1bn.
