Canelo Alvarez continues to show he’s arguably boxing’s biggest draw. DAZN announced on Wednesday that Alvarez’s unanimous decision victory over Daniel Jacobs in their middleweight title unification bout at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas did more than 1.2 million streams worldwide.
DAZN is available in the U.S., Austria, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain and Switzerland. A spokesperson declined to specify how well the fight did in the U.S., but a source with knowledge of the information said there were roughly 700,000 concurrent live streams on Saturday.
Alvarez won a unanimous decision over Jacobs by scores of 115-113, 115-113 and 116-112.
Amid much fanfare, Alvarez signed a $365 million contract with the streaming service last year, which at the time was the richest contract in sports.
He’s the centerpiece of a strategy in boxing to make a huge impact, along with stars such as IBF-WBA-WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and former middleweight champion Gennadiy Golovkin. Joshua will fight Andy Ruiz on June 1 at Madison Square Garden. The following weekend, Golovkin will fight Steve Rolls at MSG.
DAZN officials also said there were no reports of substantial outages or buffering.
