Mexican professional boxer Canelo Álvarez (28) has just signed the largest contract in sports history with a five-year, 11-fight deal worth at least $365 million with streaming service DAZN.
The Guardian reports that the deal comes from DAZN as the platform launched in the states after HBO announced they will stop all boxing broadcasts at the close of 2018.
This deal will make Canelo one of the highest paid athletes in the world, even surpassing any deal signed by Mayweather (41). By the time Canelo reaches Mayweather's age, he very well might hit the billion mark, which is approx Mayweather's current net worth. Talk about baller! 💰
