The deal begins on December 15 as Alvarez takes on Liverpool's Rocky Fielding for the WBA regular super-middleweight belt. So you could say that "Triple G" is the most sought after free agent right now for a TV deal and I think the great thing is the overwhelming majority of the fans and media think that he won the second fight (with Alvarez) or at least should've kept his titles.

Mayweather, who retired after beating Conor McGregor last August to secure his 50th straight career win, has been linked with a return to the ring in recent months.

'I think in that first fight, experience beat me as I was very young. "Canelo fighting on DAZN, we believe that that will help us attract some of the other fighters, some of the other premier fighters".

Alvarez is coming off a victory over Gennady Golovkin in a middleweight showdown in September which cost $84.95 to watch in high definition on pay-per-view.

Alvarez is boxing's biggest pay-per-view star of the post Floyd Mayweather/Manny Pacquiao era, generating hundreds of millions of dollars for events on HBO PPV and Showtime PPV.

The deal also dictates that Golden Boy put on ten "high-calibre" fight nights per year that will stream on DAZN from 2019. If there's a lucrative deal that's multi-fight, we'll be looking at all the options and see what's best for "Triple G". "John Skipper came, he wasn't playing games", Gomez said.

DAZN became the broadcast home of boxing in the United States after HBO announced in September that it is getting out of the fight business.

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.

A subscription in the USA will cost $9.99 under the five-year term with Golden Boy, which will also oversee another ten fights that will stream on DAZN in 2019.

A third fight with Golovkin would be a natural after their draw and Alvarez's narrow victory in the rematch, but there would be plenty more options at middleweight if they don't meet again. He'll spend the holidays with the family and then I can see him getting back into training mode at the end of January, something around that time frame. "We are committed to making this sport as accessible as possible and at an affordable price for all the fans". "Being part of this historic deal will require me to prepare myself even more and offer fans even better performances".
