Paul even went as far to say that he would BEAT Canelo in three years after watching Dmity Bivol stun the Mexican.

His former sparring partner Anthony Taylor believes the time frame allows the American to improve ten fold.

Taylor, 32, told My Betting Sites: “I think Jake Paul and Canelo will happen, I don’t think it’s just hype.

“I mean, we’re talking about Jake in three years from now of course, not right now.

“Jake is good, but imagine how much better he’ll get in three years from today. He’s only going to get better. He’s only going forward.

“Jake will be ten times better than Jake Paul of today, and he would be competitive. Canelo will be a Hall of Famer, but give Jake a few years.”

Canelo, 31, is considering a rematch with Bivol, also 31, after his first defeat in eight years.

Meanwhile Paul, 25, announced he will return on August 13 for his sixth professional bout.
