😬 Jake Paul backed for world title shot with ‘Problem Child’ eyeing Canelo fight

Posted by

Jake Paul has been sensationally backed for a world title shot by Oscar De La Hoya.

Paul defeated Diaz on points at the weekend and he has very lofty ambitions in the sport. He’s even called out Canelo for a fight.

‘I don’t care about that guy.’ Paul said when asked about facing McGregor.

‘He needs to go to rehab. I want Nate in MMA. I want more professional boxers and I want Canelo.’

Boxing purists have not been overly impressed with the YouTuber-come-boxer but Oscar De La Hoya believes he ‘will challenge’ for a world title.
