JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ JR has vowed to knock out ‘garbage’ Jake Paul and called for a ‘winner-takes-all’ fight.

The former WBC middleweight champion revealed he is in talks to face the YouTuber-turned unbeaten boxer.

Jake Paul has been challenged by Julio Cesar Chavez Jr to a ‘winner-takes-all’ fight.

And such is his confidence, he has challenged Paul to put his money where his mouth is – by putting their combined purses up for grabs.

Chavez Jr, 35, said on Instagram: “I assure you I will beat Jake Paul’s ass.

“I want it as winner-takes-all when I fight Jake Paul. Winner takes all the money.”

He then added: “Jake Paul is garbage. I’m gonna knock him out.”

Paul, 24, was most recently set to face Tommy Fury, 22, until the British former reality TV star pulled out with a broken rib and chest infection.

Tyron Woodley, 39 then signed as a late replacement but was knocked out in the rematch, just three months after losing on points.

He now joins YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Askren, 37, on Paul’s KO list.

Following Fury’s withdrawal, Chavez Jr would be Paul’s first opponent with prior professional boxing experience.

But the Mexican has been known to lack commitment in the past, most recently losing to future UFC Hall of Famer Anderson Silva, 46.

So his countryman Jhonny Gonzalez pleaded with the son of a legend to train properly for a fight with Paul – or face the consequences.

Gonzalez, 40, told CVBJ: “It is a good business that these YouTubers are doing who want to face boxers.

“But if Chavez Jr happens, I just hope that Julio prepares well because if he loses to Paul then he had better retire from boxing.”
