Despite being a skilled fighter, Jake Paul has yet to defeat Tommy Fury because of the latter’s transportation difficulties. He hasn’t lost a game and has beaten some tough competition. Despite having faced several MMA fighters, he only become professional in 2020. Since then, he has made outstanding development and displayed promise. It’s possible that his current fame is only partially acknowledged. Conor McGregor, Mike Tyson, and Canelo Alvarez are some of the people he has targeted and challenged to a battle.

Again, Jake and Fury were scheduled to square off. According to Paul’s declaration in June, the well-known female boxer Amanda Serrano will compete on the undercard of his rematch, which will take place on August 6 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

After a tense sparring session, Jake claims he had wanted to face Hasim Rahman Jr. for two years. When he last fought Rahman, who was 9-0 at the time, the YouTube star was just 1-0 as a professional. Early in Paul’s career, the two sparred twice. He has since shared video of one of those sessions, in which Rahman is clearly agitated by something Paul or his staff did. Marc Raimondi confirmed that the fight is confirmed.

Paul published a video in which he can be seen dancing, making fun of Rahman, and threatening to use his wrestling experience if the two get into a fight. However, the social media sensation was undoubtedly enraged by it, since he has continued to harbour ill will toward the heavyweight and has since offered to fight him for a sizable sum of money. He later deleted the post but it was too late as it was published by other channels. Here is the said clip:-

Woodley was filling in for Fury when Paul last contested in December, and Paul triumphed over Woodley in Tampa. In August, Paul had previously overcome Woodley.
