‘You can’t sell PPVs… I’d eat you alive’: Jake Paul calls out Canelo Alvarez on Twitter after watching his brother go the full eight rounds with Floyd Mayweather in the exhibition game… as YouTube stars explore the world of boxing through the storm
YouTube star Jake Paul sensationally challenged Canelo Alvarez to a fight on Twitter just moments after watching his brother play the entire match against Floyd Mayweather.
Logan Paul was a huge underdog en route to the match against 50-0 boxing legend Mayweather, but despite being dominated for eight rounds, he avoided being knocked out and the match ended without a decision.
Logan’s brother Jake takes to Twitter right after the fight and seems eager to continue YouTube’s takeover of boxing by challenging Alvarez to a fight.

Responding to a tweet from Alvarez, he wrote to his 3.9 million followers: “You can’t sell PPVs. I’d eat you alive.’
A fight against a current champion in the form of Alvarez seems far more unlikely than an exhibition match against a retired Mayweather, but the Paul brothers have certainly taken boxing by storm this past year.
Logan Paul won the entire game against Mayweather on Sunday night, but there was no decision due to the absence of ringside judges at Hard Rock Stadium.

That said, Jake was convinced his brother was the victor and tweeted ’50-1. HOLY F*** MY BROTHER ONLY BEATS FLOYD MAYWEATHER.’
After the fight, Mayweather admitted that he was “surprised” by his opponent Paul’s talent, and admitted that he is no longer allowed to fight in exhibition matches.
Canelo, meanwhile, is fresh off his Texas win over Billy Joe Saunders, which brought his own record to 56-1 — his only defeat to Mayweather in 2013.
