Paul challenges Alvarez after latest victory

The Problem Child made the challenge to Alvarez after his latest win.

As noted by Bleacher Report, Paul beat Ryan Bourland in the first round of their bout in Puerto Rico.

Paul overpowered his opponent with shot after shot, forcing the referee to step in and stop the fight after just two minutes and 37 seconds.

He then used his mic time to call out Canelo, saying he was 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. 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," he said.

While Canelo has yet to respond to the callout, another professional boxer has promised to end Paul.

King Ryan took to social media to take a shot at The Problem Child, accusing him of disrespecting the sport.
