Boxing Star Canelo Signs Biggest Ever Single-Athlete Contract

Boxer Canelo Alvarez Inks $365 Million Contract With Streaming Network DAZN, Richest Deal in the History of Sports

Alvarez's deal will see him make a minimum of $365 million over the course of five years and ten fights - moving away from HBO since their decision to leave the business.

Boxer Saul "Canelo" Alvarez earned the most lucrative contract in sports history this week by quietly amassing one of his sport's most impressive resumes.

With the DAZN contract, Alvarez could earn more than $120 million month over a 12-month period, according to Forbes.

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 owns a 50-1-2 record - his only loss coming against undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr.in September 2013 - and just defeated Gennady Golovkin last month in a battle featuring two of boxing's biggest superstars.

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.

Alvarez steps up to super-middleweight to fight Britain's Rocky Fielding in NY on 15 December - his first fight under the DAZN deal.

WWE Wrestlers Reportedly Don't Want To Travel To Work Crown Jewel
Oliver said Trump and the prince were "similar in some of the worst possible ways", including a love of money and self-promotion. Supposedly, WWE does have a backup plan in place, should the event be cancelled.

A massive moneymaker when he fought on pay-per-view, Alvarez will be able to be seen for much cheaper through the subscription service that launched in the United States in September and now features perhaps the two biggest figures in boxing in Alvarez and heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

"If he wants to come back and is still motivated to come back, he should do it right and give me the opportunity to have that rematch and demonstrate who is better".

"It's very important for me to give the fans the biggest fights and the most important fights, and I promise you I will always do that".

"I was never anxious because I'm very confident in myself", he said. I know that it would be good to make this fight so that they can enjoy some great sport.

"We feel at 28 years old, he is in the prime of his career, which is why we were willing to do an 11-fight, five-year deal", Skipper said. So really, who's still winning? "Forget about what the price is, the amount of money that we're making".
