And he just signed a mammoth five-year, 11-fight deal with DAZN worth a reported $365 million - the biggest athlete deal in sports history, surpassing Major League Baseball slugger Giancarlo Stanton's 13-year, $325 million contract in 2014. It aims to fill a hole left by HBO after it announced last month that after 45 years it would bowing out of boxing.

The feud between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather is getting extremely personal - and nasty - with Oscar now calling out Floyd's domestic violence conviction to humiliate him.

Mayweather also called out Alvarez, describing the 28-year old boxer as a cheater and the easiest fight of his life.

He had signed a 13-year, $325 million deal with the Miami Marlins in 2014. But considering DAZN's low cost of entry, Álvarez, in an interview with ESPN, is hoping that more people will have access to boxing's top fights.

"This is only from my hard work", said Alvarez, speaking to ESPN after signing the contract. It literally takes me 1 night and 1 fight to make what you might make in 5 years and 11 fights!

Mexican star Alvarez, who dethroned Gennady Golovkin in their gruelling rematch in Las Vegas last month, will fight 11 times as part of the deal, starting with December's super-middleweight bout in NY against Rocky Fielding. "More than anything, though, I'm happy that I could give great fights to fans". DAZN is charging its subscribers $9.99 per month, which - over time - translates to substantially less than the $85 pay-per-views to which boxing fans have become accustomed.

"Floyd is going to fight on December 31 and I'm going to fight January 12", Pacquiao said, per The Mirror's Martin Domin.

"Being part of this historic deal will require me to prepare myself even more and offer fans even better performances", he added. I am moving up in weight and I don't know how my body will feel.

DAZN, which is owned by the United Kingdom -based Perform Group and overseen by former ESPN president John Skipper, also signed an exclusive deal with the World Boxing Super Series to stream a trio of tournaments promoted by Sauerland Events.
