JAKE PAUL has doubled down on his callout of Canelo Alvarez, insisting the boxing great is “getting old”.
The YouTuber turned boxer made another beeline for the former pound-for-pound king after his decision victory over Anderson Silva last month.
Paul’s calls for a clash with boxing world and the man himself.
But after seeing the Mexican go the distance in his trilogy fight with Gennady Golovkin in September, Paul is confident he’d get the better of the super-middleweight king.
The Problem Child said: âAnd you, too, Canelo. âYouâre getting old. You looked weird against Triple-G.
“I still want that fight as well.
“And I think now, like I said it 18 months ago, âI want Canelo!â
“And then everyone, I was sitting in a room just like this said, and everyone was like, â[Laughing at me].
“F***ing idiot, yeah.â And then now, 18 months later, here we are.
“And when I say that, maybe people are taking it a little bit more seriously now. And I still mean it. And I still want that fight.â

Victory over Silva saw former Disney star Paul stretch his record to a perfect 6-0.
In his post-fight interview, the social media sensation said: âItâs a surreal moment. Hard work pays off.
“First and foremost, I want to say thank you to Anderson.
“He was my idol growing up. He inspired me to be great.
“He was the first celebrity I ever met. Without him, we wouldnât have had a fight this year. Heâs a tough mofo. A legend.
“I have nothing but respect for him. This just goes to show that anyone watching at home, chase your dreams. Itâs never too late.”
Paul is hoping to return to the ring early next year and already has several potential opponents lined up for his seventh professional bout.
