'They don't have my heart' – Jake Paul hits out at Tommy Fury as he CONFIRMS Hasim Rahman Jr fight | The Sun
JAKE PAUL has officially announced Hasim Raham Jr as the replacement for Brit Tommy Fury.
The YouTuber turned boxer pulled the plug on his grudge match with Fury earlier this week after the Love Island failed to make provide assurances he'd be granted entry to the USA.
And The Problem Child has wasted little time in replacing the Love Islander – inking a deal to face Raham Jr on August 6.
Along with a fight poster, Paul tweeted: "Bigger. Stronger. More experienced. KO power.
"But it doesn’t matter. They don’t have my heart, don’t have my drive & definitely don’t have my team.
"August 6 I’m showing the world that Jake Paul is a bad mother*****r."
