Canelo Alvarez and Jake Paul are two of the biggest names in the pound-for-pound division. They have been at each other’s throats for months.
The Mexican star has been open to a fight with the young UFC superstar. But, the possibility of such a fight hasn’t come to fruition yet.
For the last several years, Canelo has been on the receiving end of some very creative attacks from his rivals. One of them was a YouTuber.
Another was a former UFC fighter. Eventually, he turned it around and began to take these attacks more seriously.
Several months later, Jake Paul challenged Canelo to a fight. Canelo declined, claiming he wasn’t ready for the ring yet.
On the other hand, Jake Paul took the challenge. In the ensuing press conference, he threw out a few of his own.
He announced he would be returning to the ring in August. And, he said he would like to fight Alvarez in three years.
If you are a fan of mixed martial arts, then you’ve probably heard of Jake Paul. He’s a power puncher and is a member of the Professional Fighters League.
His most recent victory over Anderson Silva was the biggest boxing win of his career, which led to him calling out MMA great Nate Diaz.
Diaz and Paul have been in a squabble since October of last year. The two exchanged barbs, and Diaz even threw a water bottle at one of Paul’s bodyguards.
However, both parties have stated that they would love to face each other. They even fought each other in a mixed martial arts match. But there are some real differences between the two.
One of the biggest differences is Diaz’s height. In comparison to Paul, Diaz is about 1 inch taller. This could potentially give him an edge in the later rounds of the fight.
On the other hand, Diaz’s boxing abilities aren’t as advanced as Paul’s. Furthermore, Paul has never lost a boxing match.
If you have been watching boxing lately, then you may have noticed that there has been a huge feud between the two fighters.
YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul and the younger brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury are engaged in a war of words.
The fight between the two was initially set for December 2021 in Tampa, Fla. But the date has been pushed back to August in New York.
Tommy Fury has recently had trouble gaining entry to the United States. Earlier this week, Homeland Security denied him a visa to enter the country.
However, he said that he had verbally agreed to fight Jake Paul.
It has been rumoured that Paul has been denied permission to cross the pond to meet up with Fury. Whether this is true or not is unclear.
Tyson Fury has been unable to meet up with his brother since their first meeting in April. This was also the last time the pair met in a sanctioned fight.
Hasim Rahman Jr.
The upcoming fight between Hasim Rahman Jr. and Jake Paul will definitely be a high-profile fight. It will also be a great opportunity for Paul to become a legitimate fighter.
Jake Paul has a lot of experience, and his victory against Tommy Fury could have helped his cause. However, the British fighter has been banned from traveling outside of his home country. This means that he won’t be able to travel to Madison Square Garden.
On August 6, Jake Paul will face Hasim Rahman Jr. in a cruiserweight fight. It is unlikely that the fight will result in a world title, but it will certainly generate a lot of buzz.
The boxer is a son of two-time heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman. He has won against Steven Tyner, Greg Hardy, and Ralph Alexander.
Rahman has 12 professional fights, and he has won 5 of them by knockout. However, he has lost twice. His first defeat was to James McKenzie Morrison.
