Boxer Canelo Alvarez poses for photos at Madison Square Garden in New York, Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018. He has been published by Curzon Ashton FC, Late Tackle, Manchester City FC, The Mirror, Read Man City and Manchester Evening News.

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. In addition to Alvarez's fights, DAZN will stream 10 fight nights a year, starting in 2019.

Then "Pretty Boy" Floyd, who retired undefeated with a record of 50-0, gave McGregor an extremely backhanded complement by declaring "McQuitter was a way better fighter than Canelo's cheating ass".


In what has been described as a massive coup for boxing fans, the deal will allow those interested in watching the fight to pay substantially less for a subscription service, rather than forking out pay-per-view fees.

He successfully walked down Gennady Golovkin in their heated rematch last month en route to a unanimous victory over his rival, exorcising his detractors who wondered if he could defeat "GGG" clean.

Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) is planning to move to super middleweight so he can fight Rocky Fielding on December 15 at Madison Square Garden in NY. "John Skipper came, he wasn't playing games", Gomez said.


Now fans can pay significantly less - $9.99 subscription cost per month in the US - to see his fights on DAZN (pronounced Da-Zone). He is committed to fighting 11 times during the deal and willing to fight any of the contenders at 160 or 168 pounds.

"The December fight with Fielding is a unsafe fight. I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end, but on my end we can make it happen". "The most important thing is that fans can enjoy this fight at a very low price". "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".
