Jake Paul made a bold move after winning his match against Ryan Bourland and called out super-middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez.

The former-YouTuber-turned-boxer defeated Bourland, a former Golden Gloves champion, by technical knockout in a single round. 

After taking his professional record to 9-1 with two wins against established fighters, Paul set his sights on Alvarez. 

‘I mean, he was supposed to give it to me, right? This guy has 19 fights, he’s super experienced. I guess we’ve got to step it up way more,’ said Paul on DAZN after the fight.

‘But I’m ready. I’m getting sharp. This is my life now, and, like I said, I’m on the road to becoming a world champion.

‘Canelo, stop ducking. I know you want it. I’m repping Puerto Rico, you’re repping Mexico, so it’s Puerto Rico vs Mexico,’ Paul continued.

‘I want Canelo. I want all the biggest names. Like I said, I’m the face of this sport. Truly, who’s doing more for boxing than me? I keep on proving myself time and time again.’ 

Bourland did not put up much of a fight against Paul as the YouTube star kept piling on the punches throughout the first round.

After the former Golden Gloves Champion eventually stopped fighting back the referee finally called for a stoppage with 23 seconds left in the first round.

Despite calling out Alvarez – who many would still consider out of his league – Paul remained tight lipped about who he may step into a boxing ring against next.

‘We’ll see. It’s back to the drawing board. I don’t want to give anybody the attention because a lot of these guys don’t want to sign the contract, especially when I keep doing s*** like this to all my opponents.

‘I’m on the path to world champion and I want to keep on fighting tougher fights. If a money fight pops up, I’ll take it because those are fun. But for now I’m staying on the path of fighting real fighters and increasing the level of opposition.’
