Jake Paul is finalizing a deal to face heavyweight Hasim Rahman Jr. on Aug. 6, sources told Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated.

Paul was initially set to fight Tommy Fury at Madison Square Garden, but Fury was denied entry into the United States on June 28.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer is 5-0 as a professional, including four knockouts. This will be Paul's first fight since he decided to take multiple months off after knocking out Tyron Woodley in December.

Rahman, who last fought in April, holds a professional record of 12-1. He's the son of former world heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman.
