Gennady Golovkin, the current middleweight champion of the FIB is about to reach an agreement to restructure its contract with DAZN involving a pay cut for your fight against the mandatory challenger Kamil Szeremeta.
As reported Mike coppinger from The Athletic, DAZN He asked Golovkin accept a salary reduction to the contract he signed in December 2019. That initial agreement guaranteed the Kazakh $ 15 million per fight for a total of 6 fights. Half of the money was paid to him in kind, in shares of DAZN.
Originally, DAZN signed to Gennady Golovkin at the end of 2019. I was hoping to face him Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez with whom he had also signed a mega contract. However, for various reasons the trilogy could not be realized, and Golovkin It has not been profitable for the company either.
In the same way that DAZN asked the Canelo a salary reduction, the platform also requested the same from Golovkin. In the case of Canelo, the issue ended in a litigation in which the Mexican fighter achieved the termination of the contract to become a free agent. GolovkinOn the contrary, he would be about to accept that reduction.
According to the report of Coppinger, DAZN asked GGG a pay cut for the next fight. However, the platform would also be contemplating the possibility of renegotiating and restructuring the entire contract of Golovkin.
Golovkin is programmed to face his mandatory challenger by the FIB, Kamil Szeremeta the coming December 18 in Florida, in the United States.
