Canelo Alvarez has signed an 11-fight deal to have his fights shown on the sports-streaming service DAZN, beginning with his next bout.
Alvarez will move up in weight to challenge WBA super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding on Dec. 15 at New York's Madison Square Garden.
Golden Boy Promotions said Wednesday that Alvarez's deal will be the richest athlete contract in sports history. Terms weren't announced.
Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) is coming off s victory over Gennady Golovkin in a middleweight showdown in September. That fight, like most of boxing's biggest, was shown on pay-per-view. It cost $84.95 to be seen in high definition.
