Jake Paul has re-ignited his verbal feud with the P4P king Canelo Alvarez. This came after his brother Logan Paul walked out unbeaten against Floyd Mayweather in what was a gruesome encounter. Alvarez, who suffered his sole career loss to ‘Money’ in 2013, took to social media and reacted to the fight.

After Canelo’s bout in February, Jake Paul’s followers trespassed into the ring. When the P4P king saw this, he instantly ordered the unknown men to leave before beginning his post-fight interview. This drew a reaction from the 24-year-old YouTube sensation.

Canelo Alvarez vs Jake Paul – Once again

While Canelo Alvarez remains one of the biggest superstars in the sport, Jake Paul is nowhere near him under any parameter. Just three fights down the line, Paul has never faced a pro boxer. So, it makes little sense to pose him against Alvarez.

However, as the growing differences can intensify their relationship, the duo might agree to square off in the future. Both men have the potential to grab attention. As they continue to infuse bad blood, boxing fans might demand a match between them.

Meanwhile, it’s still too early for Paul to go after a world champion like Alvarez. He is now scheduled to meet former UFC titlist Tyron Woodley in August. On bagging a win, ‘The Problem Child’ would clearly move towards the bigger names.
