Jake Paul sends Canelo Alvarez warning ahead of Tyron Woodley rematch

"I'm bigger than that guy. I'm stronger. It's not about how long you've been doing something. It's about how right you have been doing it."

Jake Paul returns to the ring this weekend when he takes on Tommy Fury's replacement Tyron Woodley.

The former UFC champion will look to avenge his August defeat to Paul, which ended via split-decision in favour of the YouTuber.

It is the fifth fight of Paul's career as a professional fighter and despite not having fought a legit boxer, he is targeting a showdown with Canelo Alvarez in the future.

Canelo became the first undisputed champion at super middleweight in November and is a four-time division titlist.

He is set to fight at cruiserweight in May against Ilunga Makabu but according to Paul, he believes his name should be thrown into the hat to face the Mexican.

"I will fight Canelo 100 per cent. Look at this guy Avni Yildirim (who Canelo beat earlier this year).

His nickname was 'The Turkish Warrior'. He got to fight Canelo. He sat down in the corner and quit. He didn't throw a punch.

"Why can he get the fight but I can't? I'm bigger than that guy. I'm stronger. It's not about how long you've been doing something. It's about how right you have been doing it."

Paul admitted a potential clash is a few years off but believes a crossover fight would be a huge event for boxing.

Fury fight will never happen

Paul says a rescheduled fight between himself and Tommy Fury is unlikely after the Brit pulled out of the proposed fight because of injury and illness.

'I don't think a fight between us will ever happen,' Paul told Showtime. I don't want to ever give him the opportunity. He had his shot.

"I'd like to see him fight 20 more times to even get the same payday that he would have got against me.

"Sorry, Tommy. It isn't going to happen. I don't want to ever give him the opportunity. He had his shot.

"I'd like to see him fight 20 more times to even get the same payday that he would have got against me.
