Jake Paul will meet Hasim Rahman Jr. on August 6, which will be his most difficult test to yet. Both fighters will square off inside New York's Madison Square Garden for the battle.

Paul engaged in three fights in 2021. He defeated Tyron Woodley in August and Ben Askren in April, both former MMA champions. Tommy Fury was supposed to compete in December, but he had to withdraw due to a fractured rib.

The rematch was scheduled when Woodley took his spot. Paul defeated him by knockout in the sixth round of the fight. Prior to Fury's withdrawal from the fight due to travel complications, Fury and Paul had made an agreement to fight inside MSG.

Hasim Rahman Jr. (12-1) made his professional debut in 2017 and is the son of the former lineal heavyweight champion. In '21, he had three victories, including two knockouts. Rahman's most recent contest ended in a TKO loss against James McKenzie Morrison in April.

After Paul disclosed that Rahman was attempting to negotiate his contract earlier today, it appeared that their Showtime PPV matchup versus Rahman Jr. was in risk.

Paul claimed on The MMA Hour that "we signed a deal last week for 10 times more than he's ever been paid for all of his bouts and now, boom, fast forward one week, and he's trying to milk more money out of the fight."
