Jake Paul, Hasim Rahman Jr. Fight Canceled Because of Weight Problems


The anticipated Aug. 6 clash between Jake Paul and Hasim Rahman Jr. at Madison Square Garden will no longer be taking place due to issues regarding Rahman’s weight.

Showtime Sports and Most Valuable Promotions announced the decision Saturday night in a statement chronicling the fighter’s inability to meet the bout’s contracted weight limit. Paul was set to face Rahman Jr., the son of ex-heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman, after he stepped in for British fighter Tommy Fury, who was denied entry into the United States in late June.

Shortly after the announcement, Paul shared a video on Twitter explaining the situation, and offering his thoughts on losing a second opponent in a little over a month. The Youtuber-turned-boxer even went as far as declaring that both Rahman and Fury were scared to face him at MSG.
