What has been said?

"[Jake] knows that if I was fighting Tommy Fury, it would be a massacre," Rahman Jr said.

"I've already been around [Paul] on more than one occasion so I know what kind of guy he is, I know that he comes with antics and games.

"He tries to throw people off their game but I'm 100 per cent focused on the fight. When it comes to this fight, I'm not playing around.

"That's what he wants to do, he wants to play around and make bets and make little of the situation but there's a lot at stake here."

Paul added: "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."
