Jake Paul wants Canelo Alvarez bout and says he’ll fight brother Logan before ever facing Tommy Fury

JAKE PAUL is adamant he will one day fight pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez.

The YouTuber turned boxer revealed his desire to throw down with the four-weight world champion earlier this year but was laughed at by the boxing community.

The YouTuber is even open to one day sharing the ring with brother Logan

But after securing back-to-back fights with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, Paul believes a showdown with the Mexican will eventually come to fruition.

He told Showtime: “I will fight Canelo 100 per cent. Look at this guy Avni Yildirim [who Canelo beat earlier this year].

“His nickname was ‘The Turkish Warrior’. He got to fight Canelo.

“He sat down in the corner and quit. He didn’t throw a punch.

“Why can he get the fight but I can’t? I’m bigger than that guy. I’m stronger.

“It’s not about how long you’ve been doing something. It’s about how right you have been doing it.”

Paul also has the likes of Conor McGregor on his hit-list, although he believes UFC president Dana White will do everything in his power to stop the bout.

Brother Logan is also on the list, although Jake admits it’d be ‘weird’ facing his older sibling.

He said: “It’s talked about so much. Who knows if it will happen. It’s on the cards.

“The weird part is what we would actually do in the moment.”

Paul was due to face Tommy Fury in an eagerly-anticipated grudge match this weekend before the Love Island star withdrew drew to illness and injury.

And Problem Child has no intention of giving Fury a second chance of settling their score.

He said: “I don’t think a fight between us will ever happen.

“I don’t want to ever give him the opportunity. He had his shot.

“I’d like to see him fight 20 more times to even get the same payday that he would have got against me.

“Sorry, Tommy. It isn’t going to happen.”
