    This is coming from fat dan

    DAZN approved Callum Smith & BJS for Canelo but not as "premium" guys & wanted to dramatically cut license fee. I'm told DAZN would consider (not joking) De La Hoya, Jorge Masvidal & Khabib "premium" foes even though Oscar is 47, not since '08 & other guys aren't boxers.

    Hilarious if true.

    Premium is based on name recognition. Callum Smith and Saunders are nobodies.

    Mate, I don't need an explanation. I find it hilarious ODH was one of the names.

    DAZN is an embarrassing mess. Anybody who seriously thinks this mob have any chance of securing any top level sports rights must be off their nuts.

    Canelo needs to join Fox and Al-Haymon.

    Canelo vs Benavidez is a fight that makes the whole of Mexico stop.
    Canelo vs Spence Jr is a huge fight, 1 million PPV buys.
    Canelo vs Plant is a mega fight, the Texas rednecks will love to see that war.
    Canelo vs Charlo stops the West Coast of the United States, fills out the Staples Centre.

    Eddie Hearn and DAZN are finished.

    Canelo makes less from the Spence fight at a million buys than he just made to fights Jacobs and Kovalev.

    1m x $75 =£75m minus tv cut at 30% is $52.5m. Which needs to be split with Spence. Likely 55/45 which is $29m

    Canelo gets $35m guaranteed with no need to sell ppv. He gets the gate on top of this. There’s a reason he went to DAZN in the first place
