Hasim Rahman Jr may have pulled out of the fight (well, at least according to Jake Paul), but it looks like there's someone else willing to step in on short notice to take on the YouTuber.
That's right, former boxing world champion Keith Thurman has thrown his name into the hat, just when it looked like the event was going to get cancelled.
With the bout less than a week away, it was announced that Rahman Jr was unable to make the agreed-upon weight for the pay-per-view main event.
Both Paul and Rahman Jr have posted videos on social media explaining their sides of the story, but for the fans who have spent their hard-earned cash, they're still without a match.
Enter, Keith Thurman.
The former unified welterweight champ was recently asked about his thoughts on the news.
And despite being considerably lighter in weight than Paul, Thurman seems keen to lace up the gloves with the hope of saving the card altogether.
"Where's it at? Send me the contract, I'll show up tomorrow," he told FightHubTV.
"I've always got six to eight rounds with a non-fighter. I could dance circles around Jakey Pauley.
"I applaud him for living his dream in the way that he can. He has the desire to be a fighter and you've got to respect people that step into the ring. He's done some decent match making and he's had some decent wins.
"Send me the contract. Stephen Espinoza stop playin', if y'all don't got a fight for me, just put me in with that boy. Let me teach him some real boxing.
"I still think it's the circus, but guess what, people show up to the circus."
Jake Paul has made no secret of the fact that he's keen on fighting the very best in the business – world champions, in particular.
He has never shied away from calling out a bunch of professional boxers, including current pound for pound great Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.
This cancelled bout against Rahman Jr was definitely a step up from retired MMA stars and basketball players, with viewers eager to see how the trash-talking YouTuber fared.
But, as has been the case with his previous grudge matches, the fight fell through at the final hurdle.
"First Tommy Fumbled and now Hasim Rahman Crumbled," Paul tweeted.
"These boxers are the most difficult people to work with and continually lack professionalism and confidence to fight me. I apologise to all of the of the other fighters on the card, our partners, our team and the fans."
Rahman Jr responded, of course, but Paul's search for an opponent goes on.
