Jake Paul told Eddie Hearn "suck my d***" as he claimed he would beat Canelo Alvarez in "three f***ing years" after the Mexican's winning streak was ended.
YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul was watching on as Canelo was stunned by Dmitry Bivol, who outpointed him in their light-heavyweight clash in Las Vegas. As well as many other combat sports stars, The Problem Child has repeatedly called out boxing's pound-for-pound best.
So as the final bell rung Paul recorded a rant which he uploaded to social media. "And just like that Canelo Alvarez loses to Dmitry Bivol," he said. "An amazing fight by Bivol.
"I'm two inches bigger than Bivol and 40lb heavier. Give me three years and I take out Canelo in the same way. He was on the ropes like he won but he only won three rounds in the entire fight."
Paul then directed his taunts at Hearn, who just last week he was working alongside as co-promoter for Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano's clash at Madison Square Garden.
He continued: "Eddie Hearn, f*** you, you can suck my d***. I'm coming and I'm beating Canelo in three f***ing years, I put that on my mama.
Which boxer would end Paul's unbeaten run? Let us know in the comments section.
"Congrats to Dmitry Bivol, he showed Canelo is easily beatable by a bigger man which is what I've known this whole entire team. Believe in yourself kids and don't listen to these f***ing British s***bags like Eddie Hearn."
Paul's brother Logan later tweeted: "Alright Canelo, time to fight Jake Paul." The 25-year-old replied to his older sibling: "I’m A-side."
Paul is gearing up for a return to the ring in August after most recently knocking out former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in their rematch last December to take his professional record to 5-0.
Canelo, who is now 57-2-2 and on course for a rematch of his own against Bivol, would be the first actual boxer Paul has fought and an immeasurable step up. But it's a potential fight that hasn't been ruled out.
"We don't know – you never say no," Canelo told FightHype last year. "He can try, and keep fighting and playing. We'll see, in the future. [Paul needs to do] a lot of things. I'm not going to say I don't like or I like someone. Everyone has their personality."
