Mayweather should come back to fight me - Alvarez

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

After signing his contract, Alvarez lauded the deal, which will change the landscape of Amercian PPV - fans had to pay £75 to see his September rematch against Gennady Golovkin, while the new deal will allow USA fans to pay the equivalent of £7-a-month for DAZN's services.

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez believes a rematch with the undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. would be welcomed by boxing fans.

Oscar De La Hoya was one of the main casualties of the HBO Boxing pull out but he has also confirmed that the likes of Jorge Linares and Rey Vargas will also be fighting on DAZN with Golden Boy putting on ten shows a year on DAZN. "John Skipper came, he wasn't playing games", Golden Boy President Eric Gomez said.

Now fans can pay significantly less - $9.99 subscription cost per month in the USA - to see his fights on DAZN (pronounced Da-Zone). In addition to Alvarez's fights, DAZN will stream 10 fight nights a year, starting in 2019.

Mayweather, however, is typically not having absolutely any of it and proceeded to throw some serious shade at his former opponent - claiming he makes $300 million plus in 36 minutes in between the ropes.

Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) is coming off a victory over Gennady Golovkin in a middleweight showdown in September.

Last May, DAZN first shook the boxing industry when it announced a partnership with Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing.

He has just inked the largest contract in sporting history, an 11-fight contract with streaming service DAZN, worth a quite staggering $365 million (just over R5,2 billion).

DAZN's offering is cheaper. We are in the direct-to-consumer business.

However Alvarez's baseline earnings could increase sharply over the course of the deal if DAZN reaches a series of specific subscription benchmarks during the next five years.

Canelo's first fight on DAZN will be December 15 at MSG against Rocky Fielding, who is part of Matchroom's promotion.

ESPN's new ESPN+ service, which is $4.99 a month, is also expanding its boxing selection, most recently in a seven-year deal with Bob Arum's Top Rank promotions, which reps Manny Pacquiao, Jose Benavidez and Terence Crawford.
