Canelo’s big unification fight against Danny Jacobs on Saturday night continues to welcome in a fantastic new era for fans of the Mexican hero. Boxing’s only active pay per view star is ushering in a new dawn for boxing, having signed a huge 11 fight deal to fight exclusively on streaming service DAZN last year.
The fight marks the first PPV boxing fight, not actually on PPV!
Proud Mexican fans have been expected to shell out nearly $80 for each of Alvarez’s HBO fights over the past five years. However, that is all set to end.
Fans can pay just $99.99 ($8.33 per month) for a whole year to the ‘Netflix of Sport,’ or only $20 for an entire month of fights and content on a rolling contract.
You’ll get over 100 live fight events each year and ALL of Canelo’s future fights for no extra cost! Canelo isn’t the only boxer you’ll get unlimited access too. DAZN have snapped up Pound-For-Pound stars like Golovkin, Anthony Joshua and Usyk, and have exclusive rights to Bellator MMA and MLB highlights!
Whatever way you cut it, you’re now getting a year worth of fights for the price of a single PPV!
You’ll be loco to continue paying massive cable bills with extra PPV’s fees on top to watch boxing.
As you’d expect, fans all over the US are over the moon, as this new deal from Canelo is rewarding their loyalty.
However, not everyone is happy with Canelo making such a bold, fan-friendly decision. A very envious Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, was quick to jump on social media and try to criticize…

Mayweather has had a long-standing jealous streak since Canelo arguably surpassed him as boxing’s biggest star. When Canelo’s massive $300M deal with DAZN was announced, he couldn’t help opening his big mouth on Instagram.
‘It takes me 36 mins or less to make $300 million plus. It literally takes me 1 night and 1 fight to make what you might make in 5 years and 11 fights! So really, who’s still winning? You do the math!’
Although no one is questioning Mayweather ability to earn vast sums of money, a lot of people are questioning his legacy.
Canelo is fresh off the two biggest and most entertaining fights of all time against the deadly triple GGG. Mayweather is now fighting boxing amateurs in the form of MMA and kickboxing stars.
Many have criticized ‘Money’s’ last fights as a desperate cash grab from fans. Now that DAZN is in town, a lot of people are wondering if Mayweather will be able to get away with a fake fight on PPV again.
Which is probably why he hates Canelo so much!
Canelo himself has mentioned that Mayweather has no intention facing anyone credible again. He certainly won’t be giving a much more experienced version of Canelo a rematch.
Beyond the arguments on social media, time will tell if this new model will work for fans.
