Jake Paul reveals talks with Canelo’s lawyer over fight and vows to BEAT him

JAKE PAUL revealed he held talks with Canelo Alvarez’s lawyer over a future fight and vowed to give him a “run for his money”.

Paul has long called out the Mexican superstar despite their vast skill and experience disparity.

And he claims behind the scenes, discussions with Canelo’s team have taken place.

Paul said on Anthony Pompliano’s podcast: “We’ve talked to his lawyer and I think he’s getting to a place where he sees how serious I am.

“I think at first everyone thought this was a joke and my mouth was bigger than my actions, at first.

“Now my actions are matching up to what my words are and so I think now people have to take that seriously.

“Especially if it’s a year from now, especially if it’s two years from now.”

Paul, 25, is now 6-0 after beating UFC legend Anderson Silva, 47, on points in October.

And despite the iconic Brazilian having five prior bouts in the ring, he is still yet to face a seasoned boxer.

But that could change soon as talks with Tyson Fury’s 8-0 brother Tommy, 23, to reschedule their celebrity grudge match continues.


Canelo, 32, most recently beat Gennady Golovkin, 40, in their trilogy fight but it was a performance blasted by Paul.

And it has given the YouTuber-turned boxer the confidence that he can do the unthinkable and BEAT the sport’s biggest attraction.

He said: “We’re the two biggest names in the sport and the two biggest pay-per-view draws in the sport.

“So not only is it a massive fight but because of our styles and how we match up – styles make fights, right?

“So, because of how we match up people going into it will go, ‘Oh Canelo’s going to kill Jake, Canelo’s going to kill Jake.’

“But I know I can win and I’m going to give him a hell of a run for his money and that will just be an iconic fight to make.

“Just for the generations, I think it will shut the internet down and I know I can win.”

Canelo has largely ignored Paul’s wishful callouts but warned not to completely rule it out.

He said in May: “Maybe in two years we could talk about that. Maybe [the fans] would love me for knocking him out.

“I hope he gets a lot better and does a great job. I hope he takes it seriously.”
