Has Hasim Rahman Jr just leaked footage of him dropping Jake Paul during a sparring session?
Rahman Jr has been elected as the man fortunate enough to fight Paul on August 6th after Tommy Fury pulled out of the fight for a second time.
Paul sparred with Rahman Jr previously and evidently believes that he has a fighting chance of getting the victory when the pair do meet in the ring.
Rahman Jr will have something to say about that, though, and he appears to be playing mind games with his opponent in the build-up to the bout.
Rahman Jr’s team released a video of the HUGE fighter working the pads in the gym. In the background, on the tele, is footage of his sparring session with Paul.
Rather conveniently, the video pauses as Rahman Jr throws out a jab and Paul drops down into a crouched position, almost down on the canvas.
It doesn’t look like a knockdown, but has Rahman Jr knocked him off balance with a jab? If so, it’d be testament to the power he possesses.
Have a look for yourself – was Paul hurt, or has the footage been cleverly manipulated to make Rahman Jr look like the dominant force in the spar?
