GGG Signs Three-Year Deal With DAZN
DAZN now has the middleweight division locked-in, as Gennady Golovkin has officially joined Canelo Alvarez, Daniel Jacobs, and Demetrius Andrade on the streaming platform.
Golovkin is set to formally announce a six-fight, eight figure per fight deal with the streaming service at a press conference on Monday, where he will announce his first fight coming this June.
The 36-year old former unified middleweight champion has also netted two events per year for his GGG Promotions company for 2020 and 2021.
Fighting primarily on HBO during his career, Golovkin has been the longest holdout of HBO’s name fighters to jump to a platform due a long and intense courting process.
Initially it was rumored that Golovkin was looking at short-term deals, as PBC offered him a two-fight deal at eight-figures a fight, with one being a pay-per-view main event against Jermall Charlo. ESPN looked to get in the mix, but were unable to bridge a gap, especially with DAZN having the rights to Canelo Alvarez, setting up a potential trilogy fight this fall.
