"Look at Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez, Dillian Whyte and Tyson Fury, this is a common thing."

For him there's only one explanation to this conspiracy theories.

"Anybody who thinks that, are obviously the Jake Paul haters that want to discredit anything that I'm doing", he insisted.

"They have so much pride and ego and there's real tension, you can feel thet energy in the room"

Paul's opponent, Hasim Rahman Jr. also said that the idea of the fight being fixed is crazy.

"When my father was fighting Evander Holyfield, he had a hematoma on his head the size of a cantaloupe. He put his life on the line in this sport", further expanding on his family's pride inside a ring.

He claims he's going to go out there and put his best foot forward, because boxing has given him everything throughout his life.

"Do you really think I'm going to disrespect the sport I love, that put me through private school? The sport that has afforded me not to want for anything?"
