JAKE PAUL SLAMS HASIM RAHMAN JR OVER “ABSURD” FIGHT CANCELATION

WHAT HAPPENED?

Jake Paul has lashed out at Hasim Rahman Jr following their fight cancellation over weight issues, branding his opponent “scared” and “unprofessional”.

In the videos, posted to Twitter early on July 31, Paul explained that Rahman initially agreed to fight at a body weight of 200lbs.

Initial weigh ins put the boxer at 216lbs but, when weighed at the commission’s request three weeks later, he had lost just 1lb and came in at 215lbs.

However, further failures to lose weight on Rahman’s side resulted in a last minute request to fight at 215lbs, which Paul rejected out of hand.

Whatever, I know I can still beat his a** at 205lbs. And that was that. We moved forwards. And then today out of nowhere his team called and said Hasim’s not going lower than 215lbs. If the fight’s not at 215lbs then we’re pulling out. My manager goes “f**k you guys”… this is clearly an excuse.

The biggest pay day of his life times ten and he’s fumbling it. For what? Because he knows he’s gonna get knocked out by me. The pressure starts to set in and it’s exactly what happens with all of these guys. Same sh*t with Tommy Fury, I’m sick of it. I’m devastated.

Refunds have already been confirmed to everyone who bought tickets and preordered the fight’s PPV.
