DAZN has released the first part of “40 Days,” an all-access series documenting Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs’ preparations for their fight May 4 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Uninterrupted, founded by LeBron James and his friend and business partner Maverick Carter, produced the “40 Days” docuseries.
The episode is full of highlights, including Jacobs visiting his old barber in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Canelo hitting the high notes while signing on a plane.
The fight will stream exclusively on DAZN; Alvarez signed a record $365 million deal with the company in October 2018.
Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs) will defend his WBA and WBC middleweight championships against IBF titlist Jacobs (35-2, 29 KOs) in a unification bout. Alvarez is unbeaten since suffering the only blemish on his record to Floyd Mayweather Jr. Jacobs is on a three-fight winning streak, most recently beating Sergiy Derevyanchenko to win the IBF title.
Part 2 of “40 Days” will be released April 30.
DAZN is part of DAZN Group, parent company of Sporting News.
