Jake Paul has always been part of huge boxing matches, and the hype he builds for each of his fights is astounding. Paul also loves trash-talking his opponents prior to his matches, and it has only serves to make the experience better. He is also looking for a new opponent after Tommy Fury pulled out once again.
Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury has been talked about since last year. It was assumed the fight was finally going to happen next month. Unfortunately, Fury ran into some trouble.
Tyson Fury’s half-brother and Jake Paul were scheduled to fight each other at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on August 6th. However, he claimed that the Fury family was denied entry into the U.S. due to alleged connections with organized crime. The match ended up being cancelled in the end.
According to a report by Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix, Jake Paul is already finalizing a deal to fight Hasim Rahman Jr. We’re hoping this fight goes through.
Jake Paul is finalizing a deal to face Hasim Rahman Jr. on August 6th, sources familiar with the negotiations told @SInow. Rahman (12-1) is the son of ex-heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman. Paul pivoting away from Tommy Fury, who was denied entry into the U.S. last week.
We will have to wait and see how Jake Paul will fare against Hasim Rahman Jr next month if they can nail down the fight. Tommy Fury truly has bad luck when it comes to facing Jake Paul, or that might just have been what he needed. Perhaps fans will see that fight sooner or later, but the Problem Child might have to venture to the U.K. for it to happen.
