Canelo Kicks Jake Paul Super-Fans Out Of Ring During Post-Fight Interview

Canelo Kicks Jake Paul Super-Fans Out Of Ring During Post-Fight Interview

Despite beating Avni Yildirim in dominant fashion, Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez didn't look best pleased during his post-fight interview over the weekend.

And upon watching the replay, you can kind of understand why.

While speaking to DAZN after successfully defending his WBC and WBA super middleweight titles, the Mexican fan favourite was seen looking visibly distressed when he noticed two blokes had made their way into the ring.

But these weren't just any old boxing supporters, it turns out these fellas were Jake Paul super-fans who were wearing black t-shirts with the YouTuber's face on them.

And they'd somehow managed to squeeze themselves right next to Canelo's trainers and team so that they were on camera during his in-ring interview.

It didn't take long for Canelo to realise the intruders were there and quickly booted them out of the ring.

"Get the f**k out of here," he was heard saying while ushering the fans away.

Even once they were gone, Canelo looked absolutely fuming and was heard muttering "f**kers" as the two guys were escorted from the scene by stadium security.

It's still unknown whether the fans were under instruction from Paul himself.

Either way, if they were planning on getting under the Mexican's skin then it definitely worked.

YouTube Star Jake Paul Ruthlessly Calls Out Canelo Alvarez In Extraordinary Rant On Social Media

published at2 months ago

30-year-old Canelo has had a fair bit to say about YouTuber boxers in the past.

And in December of 2020, he let his true feelings on the subject be known.

"You know, it's all about the money," he said.

"I don't think we would agree that people that are basketball players, that are YouTubers get licenses.

"I don't criticise [YouTuber boxers]. This is a very risky sport, and if you go up there, it's very risky.

"No, I don't want to fight them. I truly believe that it's a lack of respect. It's all based on money.

"It's all for money. I'm focused right now on other projects.

"I have other stuff going on, and I would invite him for a sparring session so that he truly knows what it's all about."

Canelo will now fight British star Billy Joe Saunders in a unification bout for the WBA, WBC, WBO and Ring Magazine super middleweight titles in May.
