Canelo Alvarez has inked a five-year, 11-fight contract with streaming platform DAZN that will net him at least $365 million.
This surpasses the 13-year 325-million dollar contract New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton signed with the Florida Marlins in 2014 for the richest in sports history.
“I’ve always liked a challenge, and this is yet another challenger in my career,” Alvarez said in a statement. “Being part of this historic deal will require me to prepare myself even more and offer fans even better performances. At the same time, I am humbled to be selected to lead this new vision for the sport of boxing, which will without a doubt be for the benefit of the fans.”
The middleweight champ's first fight on DAZN’s platform will be Dec. 15 at Madison Square Garden against Rocky Fielding.
Floyd Mayweather would probably like to point out that although he's never signed a multi-fight contract for that much money, he did make $275 million just for fighting Conor McGregor.
