Fans aren’t happy with the pay-per-view price that’s been set for the Canelo Alvarez vs Gennadiy Golovkin trilogy.
It was announced that fans will have to pay $84.99 to watch the September 10 fight, which takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

This price mirrors the cost for their second fight in September 2018. Alvarez won by majority decision to retain his IBO, WBA and WBC world middleweight belts.
But now, Golovkin is 40 years old and Alvarez is coming off of his first defeat in years to WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol.
The high PPV price also counters DAZN’s previous goal of phasing out pay-per-view costs.
Renowned trainer Teddy Atlas commented on the upcoming matchup on “The Fight.”
“Listen, it might be too late. These great fights get made too late,” he said.
The trilogy will be live on DAZN internationally and domestically.
In the U.S., it will cost $64.99 for current subscribers and $84.99 for new subscribers, it includes one month’s subscription.
Elsewhere, it’ll cost:
- Canada (CAD $64.99 for current and CAD $89.98 for new subscribers)
- UK and Ireland (£9.99/€9.99 for current and £17.98/€17.98 for new subscribers)
- Australia (AUD $44.99 for current and AUD $58.98 for new subscribers)
