Jake Paul vs. Hasim Rahman Jr. Boxing History

Paul Looks to Remain Undefeated

When Jake Paul first announced that he was focusing on boxing, few people took him seriously. After all, he had made a career as a controversial YouTuber, making it reasonable to wonder if he could have a successful boxing tenure or if it was all a publicity stunt.

Well, Paul has proven that he definitely has some skill in the ring. Fans weren’t exactly impressed with his victories over fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson, but he has gone up against some experienced combat sports veterans since then.

He scored a TKO win over former Bellator Welterweight Champion Ben Askren in April 2021 before scoring two straight victories over former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley by split decision and KO, respectively.

Obviously, Woodley and Askren weren’t primarily boxers, but the fact that Paul disposed of them is something to be impressed by. Having said that, Rahman could be his toughest test to date due to the latter’s boxing history.

For the most part, Paul has been close to the same size as his boxing opponents. However, Rahman is a heavyweight, holding significant height and weight advantages that could make life tough for the social media star.

Can Rahman Pull Off the Upset?

As you can tell by the above odds, Rahman enters next month’s fight as the unanimous underdog against Paul. The 31-year-old is looking to get some momentum back after suffering his first career loss to James McKenzie Morrison back in April.

Nevertheless, it’s important to remember that Rahman was a solid 12-0 in his boxing career before that loss. It’s tough when you’re trying to live up to the hype of your father, who happens to be a former two-time world heavyweight champion. However, he was clearly doing a good job of following in his dad’s footsteps.

Beating a star as big as Paul on PPV would be a great way for Rahman to truly make a name for himself. As mentioned before, Rahman does have some advantages over his opponent. He’s three inches taller than Paul and also weighs a lot more.

Pictures from their recent press conference do a good job at showing off that difference.

It’ll be interesting to see if Rahman tries to outlast Paul or goes for the knockout. While six of the 31-year-old’s 12 career wins have come by KO/TKO, he’s won just as many by going the distance. In fact, five of his last seven wins have come by decision.

Rahman hasn’t defeated the “who’s who” of boxing, but he has more experience than Paul inside of the ring. If he can make the most out of that experience and his size advantage, pulling off an upset is certainly within the realm of possibility.

At the end of the day, this fight means different things for each boxer. For Paul, it represents a chance to build upon his unlikely boxing legacy. For Rahman, it’s the biggest opportunity of his career to grab the spotlight on a massive stage.

Even though Paul is the clear betting favorite at the moment, it’s certainly a fight that can go either way. Hopefully, for the sake of boxing fans, it lives up to the hype.
