Canelo’s big unification fight against Danny Jacobs on Saturday night continues to welcome in a fantastic new era for fans of the Mexican hero. Boxing’s only active pay per view star is ushering in a new dawn for boxing, having signed a huge 11 fight deal to fight exclusively on streaming service DAZN last year.

The fight marks the first PPV boxing fight, not actually on PPV!

Proud Mexican fans have been expected to shell out nearly $80 for each of Alvarez’s HBO fights over the past five years. However, that is all set to end.

Canelo is offering all sports fans the chance to watch his big unification clash against Jacobs, and all his fights, for just subscribing to DAZN.

Fans can pay just $99.99 ($8.33 per month) for a whole year to the ‘Netflix of Sport,’ or only $20 for an entire month of fights and content on a rolling contract.

You’ll get over 100 live fight events each year and ALL of Canelo’s future fights for no extra cost! Canelo isn’t the only boxer you’ll get unlimited access too. DAZN have snapped up Pound-For-Pound stars like Golovkin, Anthony Joshua and Usyk, and have exclusive rights to Bellator MMA and MLB highlights!

Whatever way you cut it, you’re now getting a year worth of fights for the price of a single PPV!

You’ll be loco to continue paying massive cable bills with extra PPV’s fees on top to watch boxing.

As you’d expect, fans all over the US are over the moon, as this new deal from Canelo is rewarding their loyalty.

However, not everyone is happy with Canelo making such a bold, fan-friendly decision. A very envious Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, was quick to jump on social media and try to criticize…

Mayweather has had a long-standing jealous streak since Canelo arguably surpassed him as boxing’s biggest star. When Canelo’s massive $300M deal with DAZN was announced, he couldn’t help opening his big mouth on Instagram.

‘It takes me 36 mins or less to make $300 million plus. It literally takes me 1 night and 1 fight to make what you might make in 5 years and 11 fights! So really, who’s still winning? You do the math!’

Although no one is questioning Mayweather ability to earn vast sums of money, a lot of people are questioning his legacy.

Canelo is fresh off the two biggest and most entertaining fights of all time against the deadly triple GGG. Mayweather is now fighting boxing amateurs in the form of MMA and kickboxing stars.

Many have criticized ‘Money’s’ last fights as a desperate cash grab from fans. Now that DAZN is in town, a lot of people are wondering if Mayweather will be able to get away with a fake fight on PPV again.

Which is probably why he hates Canelo so much!

Canelo himself has mentioned that Mayweather has no intention facing anyone credible again. He certainly won’t be giving a much more experienced version of Canelo a rematch.

Beyond the arguments on social media, time will tell if this new model will work for fans.

Former two-weight World Champion Carl Frampton looks set to leave BT Sports & Frank Warren’s promotional stable to join the PBC revolution on ITV.

According to Tim Smith, Vice President of Communications for Haymon Boxing, which still handles the fighter, the Northern Irish hero is unlikely to remain in his current promotional situation beyond his World title fight with Josh Warrington on 22nd December.

“Beyond [Warrington] I’m sure Frampton’s fights will be available for ITV. I’m not particularly sure what the future holds for Frampton, but being that [Frampton] is a PBC fighter, there is more than a likely chance that his fights will be on ITV,” said Smith.

The PBC still hold the keys to a lot of potential fights for Frampton at featherweight, including WBC champion Gary Russell Jr. (29-1, 17 KOs), or the conclusion of a trilogy of fights with WBA titleholder Leo Santa Cruz (35-1-1, 19 KOs).

Frampton is the current WBO interim title holder, but fights for the IBF version of the featherweight crown against Josh Warrington, next weekend in Manchester on BT Sport Box Office.

The winner was expected to unify with full WBO champion Oscar Valez (24 –0, 19 KOs) in spring 2019.

If the move happens, it could be the PBC’s first significant blow to the current established promotional order in the UK. Frank Warren had looked to be having a resurgent 2018, signing both Frampton and heavyweight star, Tyson Fury, in the face of stiff competition from Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom operation.

If Frampton can get past Warrington, 2019 could setup be big years for both him and the UK boxing market.

Back in August 1988, a then 22-year-old Mike Tyson was already a unified Heavyweight world champion. The proclaimed ‘baddest man on the planet’ was busy doing exactly as advertised. He had spent most of 1988 continuing his regain of fear, successfully battling the likes Larry Homes, Tony Tubbs, and Michael Spinks.

On the outskirts of Manchester, in the UK, another heavyweight boxer and his family were facing their own battle. ‘Gypsy’ John Fury, himself a 5-1 professional fighter at the time, and his partner were in the hospital delivering a baby. Not unusual for a pregnant woman and her partner, were it not for the fact they had expected to do a mad dash to the maternity ward 3 months later.

In safe hands, but worlds away from the medical science of the today, the prognosis for their tiny premature son looked poor.

However, for the first, but not the last time in his life, their son would win a battle against all the odds. This first fight was just to get through the first few hours of his young life.

So how would name their little warrior?

Speaking to ‘All Access: Wilder vs Fury’ a 3 part series beginning on November 17 on Showtime, John Fury revealed:

‘I thought, you fought so hard to get into the world and live… the only fitting name for you is Tyson.’

Naming your tiny son after the fearsome Mike Tyson is one thing, but seeing him go on to thrive as a 6’9” unified heavyweight world champion himself is something out of a fairy tale.

Tyson Fury’s origin story, including how he got his name, is undoubtedly one that will live on in the sport way past his own years in the spotlight.

However, his proud father John Fury revealed that he wasn’t the only member Fury household that nearly got named after a legend of boxing.

He almost called his one of his other sons ’Holyfield Fury’ after another great of that era, Evander Holyfield!

However, he told ShowTime that his wife put pay to the idea.

‘I was going to call my other son Holyfield….. but unfortunately, ‘the misses,’ she kicked in (the idea) and said ‘No….one boxer is enough!’ ’

It’s unclear which of Tyson’s brothers, Shaun, Young King or Tommy, nearly got the name. Two of them have been involved in the sport at a high level. Young King has fought as a professional, live on UK TV, with the younger Tommy due to make his professional bow on December 22 on the undercard of the Josh Warrington v Carl Frampton.

After Tyson’s difficult birth, their father John would go on to win just 3 of his remaining 7 professional fights, including losing to future Heavyweight champion Henry Akinwande.

However, his own legacy in the sport continues with a boxing champion son and family bearing the name of just one great, rather than two.
