Jake Paul is known for shooting his dreams high and has previously classed his dream opponent as being Canelo Alvarez.
However, Jake Paul’s coach thinks he has a lot of improvement to do before taking on a boxer of such high calibre.
Jake has won all three fights in his professional boxing career. He has won 2 fights via knockout and 1 of the fights through technical knockout.
After such a strong track record Jake could be in luck and have the chance to be in his ‘dream fight’ one day.
Jake Paul chances ‘dream fight’
Now that the YouTuber turned pro boxer has defeated Woodley with a split-decision win, the 4-0 fighter has made comments about his dream fight.
Jake Paul recently claimed that he would be ready to face Canelo Alvarez within the next three years, claiming he is fighting a higher calibre of opponent this early in his boxing career.
The YouTuber told the talkSPORT..“Anything is possible – my goal is to become a world champion to laugh and say I did it. Ultimate fight would be against Canelo,”
He also revealed: “I want to add experience. I want to go after Canelo in three years. I want to be a world champion…”
“…Canelo Alvarez’s opponent in his 10th fight was 0-0, and whom after defeat never fought again.”
“In my 4th fight, I’m taking on a pound-for-pound decorated fighter who has won on the biggest stages and is considered one of the top welterweights ever.” He continued.
Jake Paul’s vs Canelo Alvarez analysed
However, Jake Paul’s coach, B.J. Flores, isn’t sure that he is ready to be put up against legendary boxer Canelo Alvarez just yet.
In an interview with MMA Fighting, BJ Flores shared his thoughts on a potential boxing match between Canelo Alvarez and Jake Paul. Whilst admitting that Jake has a lot of drive and determination, he confirmed that Jake isn’t ready to fight Alvarez at this moment in time.
According to the coach himself, if Jake continues to improve the way he has been he could stand a chance against Canelo a few years down the line:
“I think anybody when they first come into a sport, they want to go after the best guys you know, [but] to say he’s ready for Canelo right now, I’m not going to say that. Come on. Like, Canelo is the pound-for-pound number one fighter. I mean it’s a lot of work to get there. I mean, let’s keep it real,” said BJ Flores.
