Arrow Hasim Rahman Jr making pro debut on Floyd/Guerrero undercard


Those who have seen him reckon he is going to be at least as good as his dad was in his prime, he's only 21.

Younger bro Sharif is also being hyped as well, he's only 16 and fights at MW at the moment.

Wonder if he's got a glass jaw like his old man?

Cool. I know his amateur career was kind of up-and-down, which may have led to stalling his debut while he worked on a few things.

Is he going to be a CW or HW in the pros?

Well, he never got stopped in the AM's - which is encouraging. (did get damn near shut out a few times, though)

He also might have a bit of old Rock's power, as he scored a couple of knockouts. (they're rare in the AM's, which is why it's an expressly bad sign if you've suffered a few )

Mayweather Promotions, probably.

Hasim Jr. has been hanging around The Money Team for the last few years. He is a full-fledged entourage & training camp member.

n/m

HW, according to Boxrec.

Most of his bouts have been at 201lbs.

Any who's watched him in the am's, how do you rate him? Ive never heard of him having a noteworthy unpaid career, but that might be because he's more suite to the pro's.

No doubt he'll be getting some hype because of his fathers name, but does he deserve it?

That's what I thought.

I never thought Floyd was going to take this promotional thing seriously but he has built a interesting group of fighters.

I don't know if there was ever much video of him competing...mostly just sparring. I know there's one of him losing on YT, but it's from six years ago and he's understandably raw at the age of 15. He batted about .500 overall and had mixed tourney success, so I doubt he's in a rush to get much of his stuff uploaded even if it was recorded.

Of course, none of that means he can't be a successful professional - particularly if he's got "chip-off-the-old-Rock" power.
