Jake Paul and Hasim Rahman Jr. both had a lot to say about their time training together prior to their planned boxing match, which was supposed to take place Saturday at Madison Square Garden before it was canceled.

When Tommy Fury fell out of the date, Paul selected a former training partner in Rahman to step in as the replacement. The contest never materialized. Paul and his team opted to cancel the entire event when they thought Rahman was being devious about his weight and would never get down to the agreed-upon limit.

Rahman has been upset about the situation, and even did a mock weigh-in on Friday at which he came in 1.6 pounds over the 205-pound limit.

Regardless, the fight didn’t happen and Paul indicated he intends to move on to something else whenever he returns to the boxing ring.

That doesn’t mean the tension between Paul and Rahman has fizzled, though, and the YouTuber-turned-boxer proved as much by releasing a seemingly complete and largely unedited version of their sparring from early 2020.

Check out the video above to see how it all unfolded.
