In the wake of Tommy Fury withdrawing from MSG, Jake Paul will fight Hasim Rahman Jr.
Following Tommy Fury's withdrawal from Madison Square Garden, Jake Paul will face a new opponent next month.
In August, Hasim Rahman Jr., son of former heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman, replaces Fury.
6 ion Thursday, Paul said.
Rahman, who is from Baltimore, is 12-1 as a pro boxer with six knockouts.
In an eight-round bout between two men weighing 200 pounds, Showtime PPV will broadcast the event.
He is a 31-year-old heavyweight who isn't a household name, but he has more boxing experience and is bigger than Paul (5-0).
After a bevy of criticism that he only wanted to fight older MMA fighters or athletes, Paul said he had already decided he would fight a real boxer in his next encounter.
Rahman, Paul believes, is a much harder opponent than Fury would have been.
"I'm literally crazy," Paul said.
