Doug Fischer, editor-in-chief of The Ring magazine, when discussing the breakup of Mexican star Saul Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KO) with his promoters, found the news in a positive way for both the fighter and his former leadership.
“Canelo is a free agent and will now apparently try to find the best options for himself. Who cares who signs him? The only thing that matters to fans is the fighting.
Golden Boy has been in business for years and they know how to get through tough times. DAZN is also not going anywhere after that, because they have Anthony Joshua, Gennady Golovkin, Daniel Jacobs and Billy Joe Saunders. No, I’m not going to claim that this event won’t hurt companies, but it will be interesting to see how they handle it.
Without the financial pressure that Canelo’s contract put on DAZN, they will be able to offer quite a few good fights, such as Gonzalez – Estrada 2, Golovkin – Andrejd, Golovkin – Smith, Saunders – Jacobs or Saunders – Smith, “Fischer wrote in a weekly column.
