Saul "Canelo" Alvarez has been out of the ring since November 2019 after he defeated Sergey Kovalev for the WBO title. He was supposed to fight in May but the fight was postponed due to coronavirus.

Arrangements were made for him to return to the ring last month, but weeks before the fight news came out that he was having issues with his promoter, Golden Boy. Also, there is some bad blood between Canelo and the streaming network DAZN. He has sued both Golden Boy and DAZN for breach of contract.

What is Canelo's beef with DAZN?
Golden Boy Promotions and DAZN failed to deliver on the richest contract in the history of sport estimated at $365 million. The law suit alleges that both DAZN and Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy have breached their respective contracts with Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, causing damages of up-to $280 million.

Damn! That is mad dough right there. Canelo better make sure that he gets paid. I would definitely sue their asses too.

Canelo is letting this go, that's for sure. Deep down he knows a contract with that many zeros will not come knocking at his door, not in this lifetime at least.

These guys got paid. Mayweather went home with a huge smile on his face.

McGregor too. The promoters did a great job selling this fight.
I bet Conor McGregor bought all the whiskey in the world!

Haha, the guy loves his whiskey, no doubt.
He is Irish after all.

The Irish are really obsessed with whiskey. I would be a fucking drunkard if I was living in Ireland.

He has a mind of businessman, or at least his manager does. You never know who is in charge in these kinds of situations.

All in all, DAZN AND Golden Boy need to pay Canelo what they owe him. Pay him his dues.

This is David and Goliath type of situation. I am pretty sure Canelo is going to get paid.
