Logan Paul has guaranteed that his brother Jake Paul will one day fight Canelo as he ‘dreams of becoming a world champion’.
The WWE star, who defeated Dillon Danis in a fierce bout last month, made the bold claim while talking to fellow Prime partner KSI.
‘I’m telling you, Jake is devoting his life to boxing. He’s talking about becoming a world champion three years from now and he’s doing it,’ he told KSI on his podcast Impaulsive.
KSI then laughed, and said: ‘Talking about Canelo,’ to which Logan replied: ‘That’s his plan dude. It sounds insane and then all of a sudden one day, I guarantee, Jake will be fighting Canelo.’
Jake, a YouTuber-turned-professional boxer, 26, beat MMA star Nate Diaz in August earlier this year after suffering his first defeat against Tommy Fury in February.

Canelo has previously said he is ‘on another level’ to Paul, but admitted he’s ‘doing good things’
He has since called out the Mexican world champion, but it appears the likelihood of this happening is far away.
Canelo previously said the younger Paul brother is ‘doing good things’, but he is ‘on another level’.
‘My level is another level. I think he needs to enjoy what he’s doing and that’s it,’ he told Mirror Fighting.
‘He needs to calm down and stop calling out people with other levels. I think he needs to focus on what he’s doing, he’s doing good things.’
Jake now faces a delay in announcing who his next fight will be against on December 15.
His original opponent was denied a US visa, which means he now must find somebody else.
