Jake Paul is one of the newest sensations in the sport of boxing. Over the past few months, he’s stirred the entire fight game with his antics and has even entered massive verbal wars with bigwigs of the game. One such boxing bigwig that has been on his hit list for a while is the P4P king, Canelo Alvarez.

Paul, taking wild digs at the Mexican boxing stalwart, has even expressed his interest in fighting him. However, Alvarez hasn’t entertained him. Also, it seems that no one from his team will address the Paul vs Canelo fight.

Recently, Eddie Hearn opened up on the same and he gave a clear sign on whether this fight will happen. He was in an exclusive interview with iFL TV, wherein the reporter asked whether he’s spoken to Canelo about Jake Paul.

“No, honestly, not once. Why I mean?”

“I mean not!” he responded.

Post his statement, Hearn concluded by thanking the supporters and didn’t speak more about Canelo vs Paul bout.

Jake Paul, who has improved his skills inside the ring, is totally in control of how he’s shaping up his stint.

Also, as he knows what value Canelo holds in the boxing world at present, Paul wants to contend with the best man in the business. However, ‘The Problem Child’ will have to surpass immense tests in order to be a viable contender against Canelo.

Will Canelo Alvarez ever offer a fight to Jake Paul?

For now, Canelo is on his pursuit to claim all the super-middleweight titles on the line. And before that, he won’t look to fight anyone else.

Citing that, a fight with Jake Paul seems impossible at the moment. But a fight between these two can still come to life when ‘The Problem Child’ goes ahead and wins fights against some professional boxers for a few years.
