But one area DAZN continue to dominate is boxing and the company have the rights to screen the biggest bout in women’s boxing history.

But what is DAZN, how did it start and how can you keep up to date with all the action? talkSPORT.com takes a look…

What is DAZN?

DAZN is a London-founded startup which is owned by billionaire Len Blavatnik’s Access Industries.

The company, whose correct pronunciation is ‘Da Zone’, has been dubbed the ‘Netflix of Sport’ and expanded to more than 200 countries in 2020.

Despite being founded in the capital, DAZN is only recently starting to expand in England having made its name in America.

The subscription service splashed the cash, monopolising the television rights for combat sports like boxing and UFC, as well as NFL.

Big money was spent on securing boxing rights in the US with promoter Eddie Hearn given a $1billion budget over an eight-year contract and Canelo Alvarez initially secured on a $365million eleven-fight deal.

DAZN also agreed a seismic deal to secure Hearn’s stable in the UK from July 2021 with the Matchroom boss having held an exclusive UK and Ireland deal with Sky Sports since 2012.
