Under the bright lights of New York City, Jake Paul is looking to shake up the boxing world once again. Paul faces Hasim Rahman Jr. inside Madison Square Garden on August 6.
The co-feature will be Amanda Serrano defending the WBC, WBC, and IBO featherweight titles against Brenda Carabajal.
Paul is a former Disney star and YouTube personality. He made his boxing debut in 2020, beating YouTuber AnEsonGib via TKO. “The Problem Child’s” next fight that year was against former NBA star Nate Robinson. He knocked Robinson out in two rounds.
Paul fought three times in 2021. He beat Ben Askren in April and Tyron Woodley in August, two former MMA champions.

During the fight, Paul knocked him out in the sixth round. Fury and Paul agreed to fight one another inside MSG before travel issues forced Fury out of the bout.
The son of former lineal heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman, Rahman Jr. (12-1) made his pro debut in 2017. He won three fights in 2021, two of them via knockout. Rahman’s last fight was a TKO loss against James McKenzie Morrison in April. He is a former sparring partner of Paul’s.
