JAKE PAUL wasted little time after his brother Logan's fight with Floyd Mayweather.. by calling out super middleweight king Canelo Alvarez.
The Mexican, 30, was critical of old foe Mayweather's decision to fight the elder Paul brother – labelling it as 'irrelevant'.

And after Mayweather, 44, failed to knock Paul out in their eight-round exhibition bout, Canelo took to Twitter to take another dig.
He posted a facepalm emoji, presumably bemused at the spectacle.
But Jake hit back straight away, ripping into the legendary 56-2-1 fighter – and calling him out in the process.
He quote tweeted Canelo's initial post, writing: "You can’t sell PPV’s.
"I would eat you alive."
Given Canelo's dismissive attitude towards the YouTuber brothers, he would be very unlikely to take a fight against one of them.
But if he did, he'd obviously dominate every category.
At 30, Canelo is at the peak of his powers compared to Jake at 24.

The Problem Child has won all three of his professional fights, but against extremely limited opposition.
He dispatched of AnEsonGib and former NBA star Nate Robinson – before defeating former Bellator and ONE Championship belt-holder Ben Askren in April.
Canelo, on the other hand, has an incredible resume that has seen him win a remarkable 56 of his 59 pro bouts.
The legendary fighter has only ever lost once.
And that was to Mayweather eight years ago.
Canelo has drawn twice, against Gennady Golovkin in 2017, and as a 15-year-old against Jorge Juarez in Mexico.
Paul won all three of his bouts by knockout, while Canelo has produced an amazing 38 across his career.
Paul is the bigger man at 6ft 1in and 86kg, with Alvarez standing at just 5ft 9in and is ten kilos lighter.
Both fighters use an orthodox stance.
One category in which Paul does undoubtedly win is that of social media followers.
He has 15.9m on Instagram compared to Canelo's 9.7m.
He also has 3.9m on Twitter – considerably more than Canelo's 1.7m.
