Jake Paul took to Twitter immediately after Canelo Alvarez's defeat to Dmitry Bivol on Saturday night. Check out what he had to say below. Viewer discretion is advised, with strong language used throughout.
Canelo stepped up a weight to challenge for Bivol's WBA (super) light heavyweight title in a losing effort.
It's only the 31-year-old's second loss in 61 professional fights and his first in nearly nine years.
That hasn't stopped YouTuber turned pro fighter Paul mocking Canelo on Twitter, even going as far as to say he'll be able to knock him out in three years. Of course Canelo wasn't knocked out by Bivol and lost via unanimous decision.
"And just like that Canelo Alvarez loses to Dmitry Bivol," Paul declared. "An amazing fight by Bivol. I'm two inches bigger than Bivol and 40lbs heavier.
"Give me three years and I take out Canelo in the same way. He was up on the ropes like he won but he only won three rounds in the entire fight."
Paul is convinced he'll one day be a world champion and wants to face the best fighters on the planet in the meantime.
He co-promoted Katie Taylor's win over Amanda Serrano last week with Eddie Hearn, and Paul also took aim at the Matchroom Boxing head honcho.
Hearn laughed off suggestions he could beat Canelo in a fight and Paul explained exactly why it's an achievable goal.
'The Problem Child' continued: "Eddie Hearn, f**k you, you can suck my d**k.
"I'm coming and I'm beating Canelo in three f**king years, I put that on my mama.
"Congrats to Dmitry Bivol, he showed Canelo is easily beatable by a bigger man which is what I've known for a long time. Believe in yourself and don't listen to those British s**tbags like Eddie Hearn."
Paul is currently 5-0 in his career and last knocked out UFC alumni Tyron Woodley in December.
The 25-year-old will return to the ring in August but his next opponent is currently unknown.
Meanwhile, where Canelo goes from here is up in the air.
Prior to Saturday night's slip-up, he looked set for a lucrative trilogy bout with Gennady Golovkin.
Bivol remarked in his post-fight press conference: "Eddie Hearn, sorry I broke your plans with Gennady Golovkin."
