Jake Paul thinks he’s already one of the best boxers in the world after only five professional fights.
Before his fight against Hasim Rahman Jr. was canceled, Paul spoke with TalkSport and confidently said he would beat Canelo Alvarez in a fight while comparing himself to cruiserweight champion Dmitry Bivol.
Via Talk Sport
“I still think Canelo and I is one of the biggest fights to be made in boxing, and I know I could beat him.”
“People laugh at that, but Dmitry Bivol showed he is very beatable and I have a style, range, speed and power similar to Bivol.
“So, stylistically when you put us in there it’s not going to be a great night for Canelo.”
Fans immediately mocked Paul for his brazen comments.
Here’s the thing: @Canelo could take on the very best Jake Paul that Jake Paul will ever be. He can do it without training, without diet, without notice, and it would STILL last 90 seconds.
This ‘fight’ is simply beyond reason. Only an absolute idiot would give it credence. https://t.co/8nuiZ9xjo0
