Jake Paul Tried To Pay Hasim Rahman Jr To Take A 'Dive' But They Rejected It, Claims Dillon Danis

Jake Paul tried to pay Hasim Rahman Jr to take a dive but they rejected it, sensationally claims Dillon Danis.


Danis has come up with his own wild theory about the sudden cancellation of Paul vs. Rahman Jr.

The proposed Madison Square Garden clash has been scrapped after apparent weight issues.


But Danis believes there's a more sinister reason as to why the fight is no longer taking place this weekend.

The MMA fighter claims to have heard from inside the camp that Paul's team tried to pay Rahman Jr to take a dive, which was rejected.

As a result, Paul's management made up an excuse to cancel the bout, according to Danis.


'The Problem Child' took to social media to confirm the unfortunate fight announcement.

He tweeted: "First Tommy Fumbled and now Hasim Rahman Crumbled. These boxers are the most difficult people to work with and continually lack professionalism and confidence to fight me.

"I apologize to all of the of the other fighters on the card, our partners, our team and the fans."


In response, Danis accused Paul of failing to bribe Rahman Jr.

"I heard from inside the camp of Jake Paul that his manager and team tried to pay Hasim Rahman to take a dive but they rejected it," he wrote on Twitter.

"So then Jake Paul’s team made up a excuse to pull out of the fight."


It's not the first time Danis has thrown shade at Paul, having had their clashes over the years.

Paul won't get the chance to extend his winning record following the two withdrawals.


The 25-year-old hasn't fought since destroying Tyron Woodley in their rematch last year.

There's no word yet on when 'The Problem Child' will return to action.
