Rahman Jr vs. Hardy: What was said?

Rahman Jr will be competing in KSI’s “Misfit Boxing” company and is now backing the Brit to beat Paul after battling with both fighters.

‘The Rock’ told iFL TV: “I thought KSI was terrible, I thought he wasn’t very good.

“But I came here and saw what he works on and how he works, the work rate of the KSI man is seriously underrated, seriously underrated.

“And I think if he keeps working hard, by the time he gets to a fight against Jake, I just think he wins.

“I think his engine is much better than Jake’s. Jake fights at a slow pace – I mean Jake’s fights put me to sleep – he’s incredibly boring.

“On the contrary KSI, he fights at a steady pace, at a high level, he always brings it.

“He fights with more passion than Jake fights with and I’m giving him the edge.”
