Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez has signed the most lucrative deal in the history of sports, he has signed a 5-year, 11-fight deal which will net him a minimum of $365 Million on newest sports streaming platform DAZN.
It will commence with his move up to super middleweight to challenge secondary world titlist Rocky Fielding on Dec. 15 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Alvarez’s deal is the richest athlete contract in sports history, eclipsing the 13-year, $325 million agreement that New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton signed in 2014 when he was with the Miami Marlins.
It is also estimated that Canelo Alvarez will make a staggering $120 Million dollars as per profit projection for 2019 according to Sports Center Espanol making him the highest paid athlete in the world.

A truly massive PPV that would break all previous records would be @FloydMayweather vs @Canelo at 160lb. For all the belts at 160lb, I feel Canelo would win now but my God even at his age he's still Floyd Mayweather. It would be an exceptional matchup.
