Next fight of Saul Alvarez is not determined yet.
One of the best boxers in the world, Saul Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KOs) came into conflict with the DAZN platform because of his fights. He is still waiting for the date of his next bout, but does not stop honing his skills in the gym. Last night a video was posted of the Mexican sparring with his compatriot, former world featherweight champion Oscar Valdez (28-0, 22 KOs), who also works with Eddie Reinoso, Canelo's coach.
The reluctance of Saul Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KOs) to hold the third fight against Gennady Golovkin for many weeks has been the cause of an acute conflict between the Mexican and DAZN. A financially distressed American streaming platform wants a $365 million deal with Canelo to finally deliver the expected profits.
Billy Joe Saunders (29-0, 14 KOs) is not going to wait any longer for Saul Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KOs). It is not yet clear if the Mexican will return to the ring this year. Canelo may only be back in the ring in the spring of 2021.
Saul Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KOs) agrees to a partial cut in royalties, but wants to earn at least $25 million for his work. This means that the Mexican is willing to give up 30 percent of his salary under the contract with the DAZN platform.
It looks like Saul Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KOs) may not return to the ring this year. There is still no agreement between the camp of the Mexican and DAZN platform, which is trying to negotiate a reduction in Canelo's standard purse.
