What Happened to Jake Paul vs Hasim Rahman Jr. Fight?

After his last match against Tyron Woodley in December 2021, Jake Paul was all set to make his return in catchweight bout with Hasim Rahman Jr., the son of former heavyweight chamption.

However, just when everything was looking all set, Paul’s promotion MVP stated that Rahman Jr. couldn’t make the required weight and has no intention of doing so.

What Do I Think? Who is Jake Paul Fighting Next?

Fans of Jake Paul who were hoping to catch him in action again will be disappointed by the failures of the bookings. It remains to be seen whether he’ll fight in the remaining part of the 2022.

In case, Jake Paul grow some balls and decides to have a return match this year, I don’t think there’s better options for him than going against Michael Bisping, Anderson Silva, or boxing legend Mike Tyson.
