Hasim Rahman Jr.’s profile: Age, height, weight, and boxing record
Hasim Rahman Jr. has a once-in-a-lifetime chance to gain the reputation he has so far lacked in a five-year boxing career by taking on Jake Paul. It’s an interesting phenomenon because Paul needed a rival like Rahman Jr., and on August 6, in New York City at Madison Square Garden, he will finally get one. Hasim got a lucky break when Tommy Fury, a 23-year-old British boxer with a perfect record of 8-0-0 and the brother of current WBC World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury, pulled out of his fight with Jake Paul because of problems with his visa that kept him from entering the U.S.
Because boxing is one of the most popular sports in the world, Jake Paul will finally get the chance to show his critics and enemies that his endeavor is more than simply a way to gain media attention. Paul has won all five of his fights since becoming a professional boxer, but against a Youtuber, a former basketball star, and two mixed martial artists, Hasim Rahman Jr. will be his genuine test.
