But a weight disagreement between the two forced the entire Madison Square Garden pay-per-view to be scrapped.
Both sides have accused each other of being at fault, but in Rahman's latest swipe he has released unseen sparring footage.
In the clip, Paul lands a right hand, evading the counter, but then reiterates and at one point is running.

"I tried to tell y’all, “he’s a runner he’s a trackstar"."
It came after Rahman called for a late-notice weigh in at the famous Gleason's boxing gym in New York in a bid to prove he could make 205lb.
And after hitting the scales 1lb over, with SunSport in attendance, he said: "Stop being scared Jake.

"They wanna see us fight, they wanna see you in the ring with a real fighter, you've got a real fighter right here willing to make 205.
"Stop being scared and fight. It's that simple."
Rahman, 31, signed to fight at the 14st 4lb cruiserweight limit of 200lb, despite being 16 stone in his last fight in April.
So the New York State Athletic Commission wanted to track his weight cut but later changed the fight weight to 205lb.
Paul then spoke out to claim Rahman refused the change and would scale no less than 215lb, prompting the MSG card to be axed.
But Rahman denied the allegations and staged the private weigh in as a result.
He still weighed in over the contracted weight but would have been given additional time by the commission to get down to 205lb.
Per Rahman's initial deal, every 1lb would have resulted in losing 25 per cent of his purse and he was given a 10lb rehydration limit.Read More on The SunHEAVEN OR HELL?

But the American claimed he would have accepted the penalty if necessary.
Rahman said: "I came in a pound over, you signed the contract to fine me 25 per cent, I'll take the 25 per cent and do the rehydration the next day."3Jake Paul and Hasim Rahman Jr before their cancelled fightCredit: GETTY

YouTuber KSI promises to ‘delete everything’ if he loses to short-notice replacement Swarmz after Alex Wassabi injury
KSI has vowed to disappear in shame and "probably delete everything" if he loses to stand-in opponent Swarmz.

And cocky KSI predicts he would "f*** off" forever if short-notice replacement Swarmz lands a shock debut win at London's O2 Arena on August 27.
Many fans have derided the match-up after KSI rejected Jake Paul's offer to drop weight and take the fight for free.
And even social media star KSI, who twice beat Jake's brother Logan Paul, has mocked the contest.
The Brit said: "Imagine if I lost to Swarmz, honestly I would probably delete everything.READ MORE IN SPORTROAD TO REMATCH Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk 2: Date, UK start time, live stream

KSI, 29, insists he plans to fight JP next year - believing he'll be back to his sharpest by then.
He said: "I haven't fought in three years, this is supposed to be a warm-up fight.
