Jake Paul has always been part of huge boxing matches, and the hype he builds for each of his fights is noteworthy. Paul also loves trash-talking his opponents prior to his matches, and it has so far benefited him. Hasim Rahman Jr. also bragged he’ll bully Jake Paul in their upcoming fight.
Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury has been talked about since last year, and it was believed the fight would happen next month. However, Tommy Fury claimed that the Fury family was denied entry into the U.S. due to alleged connections with organized crime.
After the fight was canceled, Hasim Rahman Jr. ended up taking Fury’s place. He will now face Paul at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on August 6th.
While speaking to TMZ Sports, Hasim Rahman Jr. talked about his match against Jake Paul. The boxer bragged that he will bully Jake Paul in their upcoming match.
“Bro, [Jake’s] a little boy, and I’m gonna treat him like one. That’s what Woodley didn’t do. Woodley gave him too much respect, and he sat back with his hands down and he got caught.
All of Jake’s opponents have been smaller than him. All of them have been much smaller. This is the first time he’s going to be in there with someone that’s walking him down and much bigger than him.”
We will have to wait and see how Jake Paul will fare against Hasim Rahman Jr next month. Hasim proves to be Paul’s toughest opponent yet, so Paul certainly has his work cut out for him.
