And he just signed a mammoth five-year, 11-fight deal with DAZN worth a reported $365 million - the biggest athlete deal in sports history, surpassing Major League Baseball slugger Giancarlo Stanton's 13-year, $325 million contract in 2014. The fighter's new contract begins with his move up a division to super middleweight as challenger to Liverpudlian Rocky Fielding's WBA Regular world title at Madison Square Garden, New York, on December 15.

Alvarez's last six fights were all HBO pay-per-view events, including his September win over Gennady Golovkin, for which viewers paid $85.

Mayweather also called out Alvarez, describing the 28-year old boxer as a cheater and the easiest fight of his life. Even if they never watch anything else on the service, fans will pay $120 a year, or the equivalent of $60 a fight.

The fight was the last of his broadcast deal with HBO, who recently announced they'll be exiting the boxing game after several decades.

On the popular radio show "The Breakfast Club, "De La Hoya addressed the photos to Charlamagne Tha God a year ago, calling them "a bad time in my life".

"A pay-per-view fight is basically a one-time subscription", Skipper said.

Amazingly, Alvarez can actually earn more than the $365 million he's already set to receive.

"I've always said that when one door closes another one opens and we're very happy with this new alliance that we've made with DAZN", Alvarez said through an interpreter.
