Hasim Rahman Jr makes his long-awaited return to the ring after his proposed fight with Jake Paul was called off just days before their fight. He takes on former UFC heavyweight Greg Hardy on the KSI-backed DAZN X Series 3 card presented by Misfits Boxing.
Initially, the son of a legend took on former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Vitor Belfort. However, on Monday it was revealed that the Brazilian striker had fallen ill and was out of the competition. As a result, Hardy was brought in to save the card on short notice.
This will be his second professional boxing fight after making a successful debut against Michael Cook last month. Meanwhile, Rahman Jr is 12-1 as a professional with his first and only loss coming in his last fight against Tommy Morrison’s son, James Mckenzie Morrison.
How do I look? / What time is it?
Rahman Jr and Hardy will do their walks around the ring at around 4am UK time in the early hours of Sunday morning. The fight will be broadcast live on DAZN – the streaming service costs £7.99 per month.
It can be streamed via the DAZN app and can be viewed on smart TVs, game consoles, connected devices, mobile devices, tablets and computers.
Hasim Rahman son: “I have a new replacement opponent, Greg “POW” Hardy. Super Heavyweight, Power Puncher. Yo, Hardy, just make sure you’re no more than one to five pounds heavier than me or I’ll freak out too much and cancel. Joking Real Wrestlers Fight .
Jake Paul wanted me to go down to 200 pounds, the commission forced him to give me an extra five pounds, and it wouldn’t be safe in the eyes of my camp or my eyes to go as low as they wanted me to go. It does not move
“They never really wanted to make a fight, or at least a fair fight. I don’t think he really wants to be in the ring with me, not in a fair and competitive fight. I’ve definitely moved on, I’m not holding on to that.”
Greg Hardy: “I’m excited man, this is my chance to show that I belong in the boxing world. I know a lot about the Rahman name as boxers, and I know he was preparing for Vitor, but I am definitely confident and prepared to show people that I can box.”
