Jake Paul continues to beef with Hasim Rahman Jr. after their fight was canceled due to weight issues.
On Friday Rahman Jr. unofficially weighed in at 206.6 after Paul’s team had offered to move the proposed weight limit of the fight up to 205 pounds but ended up canceling the event because Rahman’s team countered with a 215-pound weight limit.
Original weight limit was 200, raised by NYSAC to 205 pounds last Saturday morning. Extreme miscommunication (trying to be polite here) on Rahman's side prompted Most Valuable Promotions to cancel the fight, and with it the entire event.

Rahman would go on to leak edited videos of his sparring session with Paul from two years ago.
Never in the history of boxing has someone pulled out a fight a week in advance over weight issues. I tried to tell y’all, “he’s a runner he’s a trackstar 🎶 “ pic.twitter.com/rK4HKV71Et

On Sunday, Paul responded to Rahman by posting the entire 2-minute sparring session between the two.
Full 5 rounds of sparring from 2.5 years ago. No edits. People love to make clip outs to make themselves feel better but I always give you all the truth! https://t.co/vTTEPrW3lA
