JAKE PAUL has claimed that he has what it takes to defeat Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, if the pair were to fight in the boxing ring. Canelo, the pound-for-pound superstar and four-division world champion, is beatable according to Paul, as Dmitry Bivol has shown.
Quite possibly one of Jake Paul’s wildest claims yet came to fruition in the past few days, as he claims that he could beat Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez if the pair were ever to meet inside the boxing ring.
Jake Paul Challenges Canelo To Fight
Yes, you read the headline correctly. Jake Paul has stated that he believes he has the tools to potentially defeat Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez if the pair were ever to meet inside the boxing ring.
Paul, who is currently 5-0 (4 KOs) as a professional boxer, believes that Canelo isn’t unbeatable and that Dmitry Bivol has shown everyone the blueprint to beat the 32-year-old.
Here is what ‘The Problem Child’ had to say about a potential clash between him and Canelo:

As boxing fans well know, Saul Alvarez has been at the top of the boxing world for almost a decade now. The Mexican boxing star has been in the ring with the likes of Floyd Mayweather and has beaten names like Miguel Cotto, Amir Khan, Gennady Golovkin, Sergey Kovalev, Austin Trout, Daniel Jacobs, Callum Smith and Billy Joe Saunders.
One one hand, it has to be admired how much confidence Paul has in himself and the pure self belief that he possesses. However, beating basketball players and former UFC fighters who are at the end of their careers is completely different to fighting one of the best boxers of our generation.
Fan Reaction To Jake Paul’s Claims
Some fans have taken to social media to have their say on what Jake Paul has said about getting in the ring with Canelo and being able to beat the Mexican superstar.
Here is what some fans have taken to Twitter to say:
Jake Paul is Delusional. He gets in that ring with Canelo Jake going to sleep. PERIOD https://t.co/Ql6HPVsSeD

As soon as he faces a professional boxer who isn’t retired or willing to take a dive, he is going to get put to sleep. I am all for that
