Hearn told BoxingScene.com that terms of the deal are similar to the one he just procured with Mikey Garcia, which was a one-fight, $7 million deal, with an option to extend, to face Jessie Vargas on DAZN. Hearn noted there was also an option for Charlo pact to be a multi-fight deal, if that was a road Charlo wanted to embark on. If Charlo was not interested in such a move, he could simply take the one-fight deal and return to PBC’s preferred TV platforms.
“Whatever [Charlo] wants,” emphasized Hearn.
If Charlo were to fight on DAZN, he would potentially pave a path for himself to fight Canelo Alvarez down the line, Hearn noted. In previous months, Alvarez and his team have identified Charlo as a potential opponent down the line.
Why would Charlo possibly not take this deal? A career high pay, no ties (unless he wants to make further big fights with the likes of Canelo) and a meaningful top 160 unification.
