DAZN reveal dream Golden Boy v Matchroom fight card topped by Canelo
Streaming service DAZN has revealed a massive list of match-ups for what would be a fantasy event pitching Golden Boy versus Matchroom Boxing. Canelo Alvarez would top the event.
The five-fight offering includes several world champions. It would see the Mexican superstar headline against Demetrius Andrade.
Canelo is currently being linked to a move-up in weight. But could conceivably stage one last unification with Andrade before he goes.
With the WBC middleweight belt already gone and the IBF version set to follow, Canelo would be left with the WBA strap at 160.
Andrade holds the WBO championship. It means both men would head into the collision bearing gold.
So what about the fantasy undercard?
In the co-feature, Daniel Roman and Rey Vargas would meet for a trio of bantamweight belts.
Roman owns the WBA and IBF belts but is on the verge of fighting mandatory challenger Murodjon Akhmadaliev. This puts the breaks on any hopes for now.
Vargas, the WBC ruler, is also scheduled to face an alternative foe in Tomoki Kameda.
The third clash on the DAZN wishlist is an eye-catching battle at super-featherweight.
Tevin Farmer fighting JoJo Diaz would be an exceptional offering if it could ever make it over the line.
Bout four would theoretically see Jaime Munguia defending his WBO super-welterweight title against Jessie Vargas.
Munguia, who himself has been mentioned as an opponent for Canelo, is craving big fights. Vargas would be a good test for the youngster to reach the next level.
Finally, and rounding off DAZN’s ideal night on their platform would be two up-and-coming stars of the future.
Devin Haney v Ryan Garcia represents the Instagram generation. Haney and Garcia are much touted as two of the major players in the years to come.
For this reason, the contest is unlikely to unfold for some time yet.
