    A company and organization has the right to get out of an unprofitable, loss making deal and contract. If Dazn was smart, they would have built in clauses to allow for extenuating circumstances to null and void the contract

    Hypothetically speaking. If Canelo wins the case and gets 280 million dollars, would he even want to fight anymore?

    Not surprised he is suing De La Hoya:




    Canelo suing Golden Boy.

    I can see both sides

    Canelo was promised money per fight and dazn is balking

    Dazn obviously overpaid

    Canelo did fight jacobs and kovalev two good fights

    Canelo has tried to get bjs and Callum smith

    In dazns defense he wont fight ggg

    But is there anything binding

    We dont have the full documents to really assess

    If bjs or smith stepped up we would not be talking about this

    Covid didnt help

    Canelo should join PBC, Uncle Al Haymon, Mayweather Promotions and Floyd Mayweather. They will make him a Billionaire.

    Dazn will win because of Covid and the fact Canelo was not delivering on his big fight promises. Apparently Dazn told him that he will not only have to accept a 50% paycut going forward but will also have to fight only in the big fights that they wanted.

    Yes they overpaid but extenuating force majeur clauses like Covid can render the contract null and void

    Even Judge Judy can call it, inside of 30 minutes including commercials

    Look like he won’t be fighting For awhile. DAZN won’t be paying him to fight tune up guys and if he fights who they say, then his case is pretty much destroyed. With plenty of Peso already in the bank I don’t see an urgency in pushing the suit through the court either. I’d say he won’t fight till 2022.

    Of course not. Unless he is an idiot or surrounded by thieves, he doesn't need to fight now.

    The ones paying the money will have the final say and veto on who Canelo fights.

    Canelo wanted to fight a Turkish doner kebab shop worker in Avni Yildrim. DAZN, quite rightfully, told him to f*ck off.

    I will say looking at the pleadings Canelo’s sets out his case well.

    He has not needed to fight for quite a while now as he is a multimillionaire but he will fight into his peak years right now he is a fighter at his peak or approaching his peak. Was very impressed with his performance against Jacobs.
