Watch Canelo Alvarez kick two Jake Paul fans out of ring in ‘X-rated’ blast after they gatecrash his celebrations

CANELO ALVAREZ kicked two Jake Paul fans out of the ring in a furious, X-rated blast after they gatecrashed his victory party on Saturday night.

The Mexican star, 30, was celebrating his annihilation of Avni Yildirim in three brutal rounds when two unknown men hopped into the ring.

The pair, seemingly wearing Jake Paul T-shirts, were in the shot for his post-fight interview.

After quickly realised the duo weren't part of his team, Canelo appeared to tell them to 'get the f*** out of here'.

Once the men had skulked off, the Mexican superstar appeared to mutter what seemed to be the word 'f***ers' under his breath.

Canelo then continued with his post-fight interview after setting up a monster showdown with Billy Joe Saunders in May.

The pranksters may have worn the Jake Paul T-shirts in a bid to irritate Canelo.

In December, the Mexican lashed out at YouTube boxers such as brothers Jake and Logan Paul, with the pair both igniting a war of words with Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather respectively.

"I don’t think we would agree that people that are basketball players, that are YouTubers get licenses.


"I don’t criticize [the Paul brothers]. This is a very risky sport, and if you go up there, it’s very risky.

"No, I don't want to fight them. I truly believe that it’s a lack of respect. It’s all based on money.

"It’s all for money. I’m focused right now on other projects.

"I have other stuff going on, and I would invite him for a sparring session so that he truly knows what it’s all about."

After Canelo's easy win in Miami, Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed he will fight WBO super middleweight and unbeaten champ Saunders on May 8.

The one-sided battering of Yildirim came just over two months since Canelo easily outpointed Callum Smith to win the WBA super and WBC super-middleweight belts.

But Canelo is confident of his chances, believing he can beat the 'best in the world'.

Speaking after his 55th win in 58 bouts, Canelo said: “I felt very good, it is great to be active and I wanted to have a great fight.

“I needed the knockout and that is what I got.

“It does not matter if my opponents are taller or bigger, I have the right trainer to beat them all.

“At super-middle I feel strong and fast and comfortable, it is one of my best moments.

“I will fight anyone, the best, I am making history.”
