Rahman Jr vs Hardy: What has been said?
Hasim Rahman Jr: “I thought KSI was terrible, I thought he was not very good.
“But I came out here and I’ve seen what he’s working on and how he’s working, man KSI’s work rate is severely underrated, severely underrated.
“And I think if he keeps working hard, by the time he gets to a Jake fight, I just think he wins.
“I think his engine is a lot better than the engine Jake has .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 fast pace, a high level, he’s always bringing it.
“He fights with more passion than what Jake fight with and I give him the edge to him.”
