Signing up the likes of Anthony Joshua, Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin, DAZN Executive Chairman John Skipper holds big ambitions for the streaming service.

TOP 10 POTENTIAL FIGHTS ON DAZN

1. Joshua v Wilder

The fight everybody wants and moving closer by the second as Wilder continues to be linked with signing for DAZN.

2. Canelo v GGG 3

Should happen in September 2019.

3. Joshua v Klitschko 2

Should Klitschko ink a lucrative offer, Joshua could rematch his old rival before facing Wilder in 2020.

4. Joshua v Usyk

A potential fight for Joshua in 2020 once the cruiserweight king grows into the division. A fight with Wilder is also possible for Usyk.

5. Wilder v Klitschko

A long shot and potentially only on the cards if Klitschko avenges his loss to Joshua.

6. Wilder v Whyte

A much-talked-about grudge match would move closer if Wilder joins the team.

7. Canelo v Smith

Canelo is already WBA ‘regular’ champ to Smith’s crown. It seems a logical fight to make next year.

8. Golovkin v Smith

Likewise with GGG, Smith wants to pack out Liverpool FC’s stadium in the summer of 2020.

9. Prograis v Hooker

Two talented 140 pounders and a solid match-up to make for DAZN.

10. Bivol v Beterbiev

Two light-heavyweight champions and an explosive encounter.
