‘They don’t have my heart’ – Jake Paul hits out at Tommy Fury as he CONFIRMS Hasim Rahman Jr fight

JAKE PAUL has officially announced Hasim Rahman Jr as the replacement for Brit Tommy Fury.

The YouTuber turned boxer pulled the plug on his grudge match with Fury earlier this week after the Love Islander failed to provide assurances he’d be granted entry to the USA.

Paul and Rahman know each other well following a sparring session in 2020

And The Problem Child has wasted little time in replacing him – inking a deal to face Rahman Jr on August 6.

Along with a fight poster, Paul tweeted: “Bigger. Stronger. More experienced. KO power.

“But it doesn’t matter. They don’t have my heart, don’t have my drive & definitely don’t have my team.

“August 6 I’m showing the world that Jake Paul is a bad mother*****r.”

Rahman Jr is the son of former heavyweight champion Hasim Sr, who shocked the world in 2001 by knocking out British boxing legend Lennox Lewis.

Paul and Rahman Jr, 25 and 31 respectively, know each other well having sparred 18 months ago.

And Paul admits the training duel wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows, telling ESPN: “A really, really tough session.

“He’s obviously a lot bigger than me. It’s really interesting to deal with.

“I’m a way better fighter now. I’m sure he’s a better fighter now.

“We’re going to see who improved more over the last 18 months.”

Rahman Jr steps in on short notice following the second collapse of Paul’s showdown with social media star Fury.

Fury, the younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, was prevented from boarding a flight to the States by Homeland Security.

But Paul has his doubts, saying: “We don’t even know if he actually got denied entry to the United States.

“He doesn’t want the fight, he doesn’t want the smoke.

“He sees me putting people down. He knows how strong, powerful I am.”

Paul is hellbent on settling his feud with Fury and is willing to travel to the UK to do so, provided Team Fury stump £12.5million.

He said: “If his promoters want to handle all the logistics and pay me my $15million to go to Europe and fight, then maybe we can start the discussion.”

Paul jokingly offered Fury a £416,000 purse for a British brawl, a figure the 23-year-old baulked at.

He tweeted: “I wouldn’t get out of bed to fight you for $500k. Let me know when you’re ready to have a serious conversation.”
