Jake Paul says he’s moving on after Tommy Fury pulls out for second time

Sources point to Hasim Rahman Jr. as the replacement

After all of the buildup, Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury is off again, and perhaps for good.

The two boxers were scheduled to meet on Aug. 6 at the Madison Square Garden, but Paul tweeted on Wednesday that Fury has been replaced by a new opponent which he will announce shortly.

According to Sports Illustrated, Paul’s new opponent will be Hasim Rahman Jr. (12-1-0, 2 KOs), 31, who is coming off his first loss to James McKenzie Morrison in April.

Tyron Woodley was the last fighter to substitute on two weeks short notice for Fury’s first pullout.
