This boxer just signed the richest sports contract in history

Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs), the biggest star in American boxing, signed a five-year, 11-fight deal worth a minimum of $365 million with DAZN, per ESPN's Dan Rafael.

Alvarez's deal is the richest athlete contract in sports history, eclipsing the 13-year, $325 million agreement that batter Giancarlo Stanton signed in 2014 with the Miami Marlins.

For 9.99 per month on a subscription basis to DAZN that you can cancel anytime, boxing fans will be able to watch his fight on December 15th at Madison Square Garden against Rocky Fielding for a fraction of the price as well as getting an entire month's boxing content.

"Today I am thrilled to be here as we announce the beginning of a new era in boxing and the USA harbinger of a global transformation to a fan-centered and fan-friendly presentation of sports in OTT subscription services".

"This is only from my hard work", Alvarez told ESPN. Boxing fans also stand to score as the middleweight champion - who is the sport's biggest star - will no longer fight on pay-per-view thanks to the new contract. "That was the most important thing, more important than what I am making". "But I always want to take on challenges, and I am very happy my fans will be able to see me fight at a small cost".

"Being part of this historic deal will require me to prepare myself even more and offer fans even better performances".

"At the same time, I am humbled to be selected to lead this new vision for the sport of boxing, which will without a doubt be for the benefit of the fans".

As part of the partnership, Golden Boy Promotions will put on up to 10 high-caliber fight nights per year that will stream live on DAZN beginning in early 2019.
