The YouTuber-turned-pro boxer Jake Paul recently decided to call off the bout against Hasim Rahman Jr. and nixed the entire Madison Square Garden card. The even was set to take place next weekend. ‘The Problem Child’ had claimed that his planned opponent Hasim Rahman Jr. was refusing to cut any weight from his 215lb frame. That did not sit well with Rahman Jr. as he lambasted Jake Paul after the fight was canceled. He believes Paul was scared to face him inside the ring.

Hasim Rahman Jr. believes Jake Paul got scared

It has been noted that the fight was initially set at the cruiserweight limit of 200lb before Jake Paul agreed to move it to 205lb. However, he claims he bulked at the suggestion of fighting at 215lb given he normally weighs in at 190lb. Rahman Jr, on the other hand, had raised question as to why he was not allowed a final week to lose as much weight as possible.

Following the decision, Hasim Rahman Jr. quickly hopped on his Twitter account to share some harsh words with Paul. Here is what he said:

“I been telling anybody who will listen this man a FRAUD and was ready to get EXPOSED. Nobody pulled out of a fight with this p***y he just scared at the end of the day” Jake Paul’s mother also shared her thoughts and minced no words for Rahman Jr.

Rahman later went on to deliver some more details in a Instagram post. “My body simply would not let me do it,” Rahman Jr. said in an Instagram post. “It would not let me get down to 200 pounds, but where in boxing do you see them canceling fights a whole week in advance? I didn’t even get my last week to get down as low as I could. I told this man, ‘If penalties involved, keep the purse. Keep the purse. I’d fight you for the $5,000 minimum.’ That’s how much it means to me, and that’s how much faith I have in knocking him out.”

“(He) could’ve saved the show,” Rahman Jr. said. “Jake Paul could’ve fought a real boxer, but he don’t want to fight a real fighter. He don’t want to fight a real fight. He wanted to drain me down and fight a shell of me, which I’m not going to allow him to do. Now, they didn’t move the goalposts and move the finish line closer and have me weigh in all these extra days early and then pull the plug on the fight like, ‘We don’t want to fight.’
