Jake Paul looks absolutely tiny as he goes head to head with new opponent

Jake Paul was dwarfed by his next opponent Hasim Rahman Jr at a press conference ahead of their coming together on August 6.

Rahman Jr might be a replacement for Tommy Fury after the former Love Island star was refused entry to the United States due to Visa issues, but he has his own score to settle. The pair are not the best of friends following a heated clash at a sparring session two years ago.

In footage released by Paul last week, Rahmar Jr accuses the YouTuber-turned-fighter of "talking s***" and promises to knock him out. "Now who's the b***h?," says Rahman Jr, squaring up to his opponent.

The pair squared up once again at Tuesday's press conference, where 6ft 3in star Rahman Jr towered over Paul, who is a just over 6ft.

And Rahman didn't hold back when discussing the release of the aforementioned footage. "Did you put the footage out when you ran away from me in the ring?" he asked. "You turned back around. Why didn't you put that out – content creator?

Do you think Jake Paul will retain his unbeaten record against Hasim Rahman Jr? Let us know in the comments section below.

"You ain't fought no boxers and this will be your first loss. I will be using both hands. I only used one hand when I sparred you. He can't even spar nobody with one hand. He's not at that level. I promise you he turned his back and ran from me.

"When I spar you it's always the same thing – it's a handicap. I've been trying to help him but he's barking up the wrong tree. I'm gonna f*** you up."

Paul responded by claiming that their upcoming fight will prove to fans that he can beat a real boxer. With 100 amateur fights under his belt and just one pro defeat, Rahman Jr is a step up on Paul's previous opponents – not that the American loudmouth is worried.

Responding to Rahman Jr's claims about their sparring session, he said: "Why were you so mad after then? He's gonna get beat up by a singer, a sea shell collector, I'm a Disney boy, I'm all of these things. You sound stupid. I've knocked out everyone I've fought. You're another name on the list, a pawn.

"This 100 per cent (a bigger fight than Tommy Fury) this is what I do, I take hard challenges and challenge myself more and more with every fight and give the fans what they want. People say take on a real boxer? Here we go, I'm proving to the kids out there if you set your mind to something then you will win."
