Multiple sources have confirmed to BoxingScene.com that DAZN executive chairman John Skipper met recently with Canelo Alvarez in San Diego and offered new incentives for a commitment from the Mexican superstar to fight Gennadiy Golovkin on September 12 of this year in conjunction with Mexican Independence Day Weekend.
Skipper proposed a three-fight package within the framework of DAZN’s 11-fight, $365 million contract with Canelo.
Fight #1 would be against Billy Joe Saunders in Las Vegas on May 2. The September 12 fight against Golovkin would take place at a site to be determined, most likely Las Vegas or AT&T Stadium in Texas. The third fight now under consideration would match Canelo against Ryota Murata in Japan. That fight (which is the most speculative of the three) could occur as early as December of this year if Canelo came out of the Golovkin fight relatively unscathed.
