He wrote, “Canelo Alvarez’s opponent in his 10th fight was 0-0, and whom after defeat, never fought again. In my 4th fight I’m taking on a pound for pound decorated fighter who has won on the biggest stages and is considered one of the top welterweights ever.”

Canelo, in his 10th fight, battled Javier Martinez, who was a debutant back then. The future P4P star put on a classic beating and defeated Martinez via a T/KO. Post that fight, Martinez never took up the ring space again.

Considering that, ‘The Problem Child’ took a dig at Canelo and showcased the fact that he is fighting against tougher opponents who are already big names.

Now, on August 29, Paul will look to display his skill sets in the finest way possible and beat another big name to move ahead as a boxer.
