WHO IS HASIM RAHMAN JR?

Jake Paul has confirmed his next opponent. Hasim Rahman Jr. will be in the opposite corner on Aug. 6 from Madison Square Garden. 

Rahman is 12-1 with six knockouts as a professional. He will present "The Problem Child" with his toughest test to date.

The son of former WBC heavyweight champion, Hasim Rahman, the younger version was just ten years old when his father defeated Lennox Lewis to become the world's best heavyweight. 

For the 31-year-old, boxing is a family affair, as Rahman Jr takes inspiration from his dad.

Rahman Jr made his debut in 2017, only three years after his dad's retirement.

Earlier this year, Rahman Jr suffered the only loss of his career when he was halted by James Morrison, the son of Tommy Morrison, in five rounds.

He should start this fight as the favourite due to his experience and will be backed by many to win.

 If Paul can emerge victorious, then it could be the moment where people take his fighting career seriously.
