Jake Paul, the controversial YouTube star, has been slammed for being ‘disrespectful’ to boxing after calling out Canelo Alvarez, one of the sport’s biggest stars.

Paul, who has become a professional boxer in recent months, took to social media to challenge Alvarez to a fight, claiming he was ‘the biggest challenge of his career’.

However, the move has been met with criticism from boxing fans and experts, who have accused Paul of being disrespectful to the sport.

Alvarez’s coach, Eddy Reynoso, has also weighed in on the situation, listing three weaknesses he believes Paul has as a boxer.

Reynoso said that Paul’s lack of experience, lack of technique and lack of power are all weaknesses that could be exploited in a fight against Alvarez.

He also said that Paul’s lack of experience in the ring could be a major factor in any potential fight, as he has only had three professional fights so far.

Paul has responded to the criticism, claiming that he is ‘not afraid’ of Alvarez and that he is ‘ready to fight’.

However, many boxing fans and experts remain unconvinced, with some even calling for Paul to be banned from the sport for his ‘disrespectful’ behaviour.

Paul’s challenge to Alvarez has also been met with criticism from other boxers, including former world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Mayweather said that Paul was ‘not ready’ for a fight with Alvarez and that he should ‘focus on his own career’.

The controversy has sparked a debate about the role of social media in boxing, with some arguing that it has become too easy for fighters to call out their opponents without any real consequences.

Others have argued that social media can be a useful tool for fighters to promote themselves and their fights, and that it should not be used to disrespect the sport.

Whatever the outcome of the debate, it is clear that Paul’s challenge to Alvarez has been met with a lot of criticism and that he will need to prove himself in the ring if he is to be taken seriously as a boxer.
