Boxing fans were left in disbelief as Jake Paul made another bold statement following Canelo Alvarez's dominating win against Jermell Charlo. The YouTuber-turned-boxer boasted that he could easily overpower the boxing superstar if they were to ever face off.
Paul's outrageous claim sparked a frenzy among fight fans, who took to social media to mock his audacity. Many expressed their disbelief at the idea that Paul could even compete against Canelo:
- "Good one," sarcastically commented one fan.
- Another fan called Paul "delusional AF."
- "Gotta be kidding, right?" questioned one skeptic.
- One fan bluntly told Paul to "chill."
- Some even joked that Paul would have to wait until Canelo is 60 years old to stand a chance.
Campaigning for a Showdown
This is not the first time Paul has publicly expressed his desire to fight Canelo. The 26-year-old has been campaigning for a showdown with the former pound-for-pound king for the past two years.
A Lack of Respect
Canelo, however, doesn't hold Paul in high regard when it comes to boxing skills. Although he is open to sharing the ring with him, Canelo recently stated that he doesn't view Paul as a true fighter. Despite this, Canelo acknowledges the attention Paul brings to the sport and respects his ability to attract a wider audience.
Since his victory against Nate Diaz in August, Paul has taken a break from the ring, leaving fans wondering when he will step back into the boxing world.
