Logan Paul Claims Canelo Alvarez 'Spit On The Ethics Of Boxing' In Explosive Rant
Logan Paul has unleashed a scathing rant on Canelo Alvarez after the Mexican fighter accused Logan and brother Jake of disrespecting boxing.
The two YouTube stars have transitioned to the ring in recent years and pound for pound king Canelo isn't impressed.
But elder brother Logan responded on a Night Shift Gaming stream and said per Dexerto: "I think he's the guy that got caught using steroids twice. We want to talk about disrespecting boxing, talk about a guy who didn't play by the rules."
"F**k you. Suck a d**k," he continued.
"I think he's salty because I get a chance to beat [Floyd] Mayweather and he lost to him, that's his one loss.
"It pisses me off bro. Like, Jake and I are putting in the work, we're out working professional boxers, we go hard as f**k, dedicate our lives to it.
"To say we're disrespecting the sport, I feel disrespected especially as it's coming from a guy who, quite literally, disrespected and spit on the ethics of the sport. Yeah, it upsets me."
Alvarez was suspended for six months back in 2018 after failing two drug tests. The 30-year-old claimed it was as a result of 'contaminated meat.'

Paul continued on his tirade and paid tribute to Canelo's ability, while admitting it was disappointing to receive the criticism ahead of his super fight with Floyd Mayweather.
"I don't know what it is that people feel threatened by newcomers who are willingly, actively, and enthusiastically participating and putting in the work.
"It's disrespectful to me when, a GOAT, a person who I look up to like Canelo says I'm disrespecting the sport just because he doesn't understand the dynamics of Floyd's business."
Speaking to TMZ via a translator, Canelo shot down fighting Jake Paul and bluntly replied: "No. 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."
When addressing both brothers, he added: "For true fighters, I do believe it is a lack of respect."
