Boxing champion Saul Alvarez signs 'richest sports contract ever'
World | sport | 14:45, 18 October 2018 | 1035

AKIPRESS.COM - Mexican boxing star Saul "Canelo" Alvarez has signed an 11-fight deal reportedly worth a minimum of $365m (£278m), Sky News reports.

It makes the middleweight world champion the highest paid sportsperson in the world, according to his promoter Oscar De La Hoya.

Alarez, 28, has agreed the five-year-deal with sports streaming service DAZN.

It will offer fans a monthly subscription service to watch the fights rather than having to pay hefty pay-per-view fees.

The Mexican's last fight - a controversial win against Gennady Golovkin - cost $84.95 in the US.

Alvarez has a huge following in America, especially among the large Spanish-speaking community.
