Morning Report: Chael Sonnen: Hasim Rahman Jr. tried pulling ‘scumbag switch’ with Jake Paul have compatibility

Hasim Rahman Jr. won’t be getting his chance handy Jake Paul his first loss in boxing in the end.

Largely considered the principle “exact” boxer that Paul was once set to face, Rahman’s shot at popularity and fortune fell via this earlier weekend when it was once presented the bout was once canceled as a result of weight issues on Rahman’s facet. The bout was once scheduled to occur at 200 pounds with each pound Rahman went over that implies he’d be forced to forfeit 25 percent of his purse, in step with him.

Most Precious Promotions have since come out mentioning that Rahman’s camp an expert them throughout the week that he planned on combating at 215 pounds and didn’t want to fight at any weight lower, resulting in his removal. The have compatibility was once to occur the Saturday night time in Madison Sq. Garden.

Thus begs the question why go through all this hassle and build-up only to plant a flag in this type of taste? For former three-time UFC identify challenger, Chael Sonnen, he believes worry is the ultimate factor.

“There is a lot on this, where do you want to start to unpack this?” Sonnen said on his YouTube channel. “I begged Jake Paul, I begged Jake Paul to listen to me, he will have to not respect enough of what I said, he hears it although, he shared that with me. I begged him. Jake, don’t do the Tommy Fury issue. No longer only does Tommy not want that fight, neither does the community of boxing, they’re setting you up.

“They’re setting you up on account of they, the community, are merely as scared as the men inside the locker room that you simply’re as good as you’re saying you are. The community does not want to accept that an intruder, who did not get began this as a second technology the day he were given right here out of the womb, is usually a main fit and a box administrative center draw. They just don’t want to, they’re going to talk you into Tommy Fury and the second you say positive, they’re going to start out tearing you down so that your loss seems to be like magnificent, and your victory seems to be like small. I begged him … he went after Tommy anyway and Tommy does what we promised, what would happen [and that’s pull out].”

Taking into consideration the conclusion to this brief saga with Rahman, it’s extraordinarily no longer going Paul will look to rebook the matchup. The question now merely remains as to whether or not Paul goes once more to coping with further of a “well-known individual” type of opponent or each different MMA celebrity.

In Paul’s first 5 fits as a certified boxer, he’s defeated the likes of a fellow YouTuber, a former NBA player, and two former welterweight MMA champions, Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.

“‘Top’ Rahman Jr. tried to tug a scumbag switch,” Sonnen said. “That’s on him, that’s a part of his method, any other other people aren’t going to like it, I don’t like it any time you don’t honor your deal.”
