What’s The Status Of Canelo Alvarez’s Lawsuit Against DAZN And Golden Boy?

There is a new update in regards to Canelo Alvarez’s lawsuit.

In early September, Canelo filed a lawsuit against sports streaming platform DAZN, Golden Boy Promotions, and Oscar De La Hoya. Boxing’s top star has been seeking $280 million in damages as he alleges a breach of contract. Canelo also wants the ability to ditch his contracts.

A court in California ended up dismissing the case due to an error on the part of Canelo’s attorneys. The issue was in how the defendants were designated. Canelo had until September 28 to amend the claim and re-file.

That’s exactly what Canelo has done according to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated.

“Canelo Alvarez has re-filed his lawsuit against DAZN, Golden Boy Promotions and Oscar De La Hoya, per a copy of the complaint obtained by Sports Illustrated. As in the previously filed lawsuit, Canelo is seeking no less than $280 million in damages and freedom from his contracts with Golden Boy and DAZN. Alvarez has demanded a jury trial.”

It was reported that Canelo met with DAZN’s Chief Operating Officer Ed McCarthy, De La Hoya, and Eric Gomez for a 10-hour mediation. It was said that Canelo was offered up to $20 million with upside based on how many new subscribers each fight draws. While it was reported that Canelo was considering the deal, he is going through with the lawsuit.

Canelo hasn’t competed since November 2, 2019. He captured the WBO Light-Heavyweight Title by knocking out Sergey Kovalev in the 11th round. Canelo vacated the gold as he plans to move back down in weight.
