Two “Jake Paul goons” crashed Saul “Canelo” Alvarez’s post-fight interview on Saturday night at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, and the boxing superstar wasn’t having it. Alvarez defeated mandatory challenger Avni Yildirim by third-round knockout and was talking about his big win to DAZN’s Chris Mannix when he noticed two people jumping up and down behind him inside the ring wearing Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren shirts.

Alvarez appears to say “get the f*** out of here” to the two people as he ushers the interlopers out of sight.

Alvarez was a massive favorite heading into the fight, and he proved the oddsmakers right.


Next Fight for Canelo vs. Another Champ

After Alvarez’s win over Yildirim, Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn announced Alvarez’s next fight would be a title unification bout against WBO champion Billy Joe Saunders on May 8.

Alvarez already holds the WBA and WBC titles at 168, so the winner of Canelo vs. Saunders would have three of the four major alphabet titles in the 168-pound division.

Other Interesting Aspects of Canelo vs. Yildirim

ESPN’s Ariel Helwani noted that Alvarez was interviewed by UFC BMF champion Jorge Masvidal after his win. Of course, it looks like the viral marketers stayed clear of the MMA fighter while he interviewed Alvarez.

Comedian Gabriel Iglesias noted that Alvarez was way better than his opponent on Saturday night.

Another fan said the same thing in a different way. Perhaps this was less a boxing match and more of a concert. After all, Alvarez’s epic ring walk featured J Balvin and it actually might have been more dangerous than the fight.

You can see that moment below.

Alvarez is one of boxing’s top pound-for-pound fighters. He’s one of the biggest boxing superstars in the world, and he hasn’t lost since facing Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2013.

Alvarez probably didn’t like having his post-fight interview on DAZN crashed by “Jake Paul goons” but he handled it just as fast and forcibly as he did his opponent on Saturday night.
