Mr. Hasim Rahman JR, on the other hand, is the son of a legend who fought on Mike Tyson's undercard. On Saturday, the cruiserweight hopeful, who had a falling out with Floyd Mayweather, will meet ex-UFC fighter Rashad Coulter. It comes after Brit Viddal Riley was forced to leave the game due to an injury, with Rahman Jr coming in. He has never been defeated and is rated No. 1 by the WBC.

Rahman Jr started his career at the age of 15 with a record of 13-0. He won all his fights via knockouts. This included wins over future world champions including Bryant Jennings and Andrew Lewis. In 2011, he met Floyd Mayweather Jr during one of his exhibitions. The fight was stopped in the fourth round due to a cut from a headbutt.

Mayweather praised Rahman Jr for being brave enough to take the fight against him. However, later that year, Rahman Jr dropped out of his next exhibition due to an ankle injury. He was replaced by British boxer Viddal Riley. Since then, he has not fought again and is now focusing on becoming a pro wrestler.

As for his father, he is also a famous boxer who has held the WBA super lightweight title twice. He has a record of 31-3-1 with 25 KOs. After retiring from boxing, he moved to America where he became a US citizen.

Rahman Jr has two siblings named Suleiman and Samia.

Who is Rahman Ali and what is his name?

Rahman Ali (born Rudolph Valentino Clay on July 18, 1943) is a former heavyweight boxer from the United States. He held the WBA (World Boxing Association) title between 1969 and 1970 and the WBC (World Boxing Council) title in 1970. After retiring from boxing, he became a Muslim and changed his name to Rahmon Ali.

He was born in New York City, New York to father Albert Clay, who worked as a house painter and mother Lillian Jackson, who worked as a nurse. The family moved to Los Angeles, California when Rahman was a child. He began boxing at the age of 15 under the guidance of his older brother Herbert "Buzz" Clay who also became a boxer. The two brothers fought each other twice with Rahman winning both matches. After their father died in an accident when he was 19 years old, Rahman decided to pursue a career in boxing and moved to Chicago, Illinois to train at the renowned Kronk Gym run by Freddie Brown and Charlie Davis. In addition to training, he also worked as a janitor to support himself while in Chicago.

During one of his training sessions at the gym, he met a young woman named Veronica Cartwright who would later go on to become famous for her role as Judy Gribble in the cartoon series The Pink Panther.

When did Hasim Rahman sign with Top Rank?

Rahman became a two-time heavyweight champion when the WBC chose to give its heavyweight championship to him on November 10, 2005. Rahman's contract with Don King was terminated by a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge on December 9, 2005, and he signed with Top Rank Boxing instead.

King had brought out the WBC belt to court, but it was rejected as evidence that the bankruptcy court didn't consider King to be the legal owner of the belt. The WBC subsequently named its secondary champion (who at the time was Vitali Klitchko) as the new champion.

After losing his title, Rahman returned to the ring in April 2006. He fought three times between April and September 2006, all of which were successful defenses of his title. In October 2006, he returned to the ring against former champion Joe Louis Clarke, who was looking for his third consecutive win after defeating Michael Grant and Chris Davies previously. Hasim Rahman defeated Clarke via technical knockout in the ninth round.

In February 2007, it was announced that Rahman would fight for yet another world title - this time the IBF version held by John Ruiz. The fight took place on March 4th in Las Vegas and Hasim Rahman won by unanimous decision. After this victory, he decided to retire from boxing. His final record was 3 victories and no losses during his three years with Top Rank.
