Jake Paul calls out Canelo Alvarez and blasts 'old hater' who is ‘ducking’ THREE fighters including Caleb Plant

YOUTUBER Jake Paul has launched a verbal attack on four-weight champion Canelo Alvarez by calling him an 'old hater.'

Canelo, 30, made his thoughts towards the American clear after beating Turkey's Avni Yildirim on Saturday night.

Two unknown men seemingly wearing Jake Paul T-shirts, were in the shot for his post-fight interview inside the ring.

After quickly realising the duo weren’t part of his team, Canelo told them to ‘get the f*** out of here’.

And it has drawn a response from Paul who claims WBA and WBC super-middleweight king Canelo is ducking out of big fights.

He said on his Instagram page: "Canelo, what's your problem, bro?! Why you hate me so much?!

"Canelo's mad. He has this thing against me. Said I'm bad for the sport. I'm disrespecting it, which doesn't make sense at all.

"I'm actually just bringing more eyeballs, more awareness to the sport of boxing.

"But since Canelo, you wanted to start this beef, let's do it!

"Why not fight Caleb Plant? David Benavidez? BooBoo Andrade?

"You're ducking them. You're ducking them, Canelo! You're an old hater, that's what you are.

"You're mad because DAZN had to renegotiate your contract because you weren't selling enough.

"You're mad because there is someone new coming into this sport.

"You claim you're the pound-for-pound best fighter but you're fighting these guys from Turkey that no one has ever heard of."

Canelo will be hoping to silence the loudmouth American when he takes on Billy Joe Saunders in May to determine who will be crowned undisputed champ.

Meanwhile Paul is 2-0 with as many knockout since turning pro in 2020.

He beat online rival 'AnEsonGib' before leaving ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 36, out cold in November on the undercard of Mike Tyson's comeback fight.

Paul's next fight is on April 17, facing retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren before a potential blockbuster showdown with Tommy Fury.
