Jake Paul is allegedly considering a high-profile matchup with controversial kickboxer Andrew Tate.
This weekend’s fight between Paul and Hasim Rahman Jr. at Madison Square Garden was postponed after the YouTube star charged that his opponent was purposefully under the 205-pound limit.
Paul will probably go after another test from a variety of call-outs, including TikTok star Tate, 35, who has recently gained notoriety.
As a kickboxer, Tate claims to have defeated former UFC champion Luke Barnatt in one of his 87 fights, nine of which he claims to have lost. He has made news for flaunting his opulent lifestyle and posting some contentious statements on social media.
Tate previously challenged Paul to a duel two years prior when he offered the other content producer $3 million in cash.
Paul has received harsh criticism despite missing fights with Rahman Jr. and Tommy Fury because he has yet to face a fighter with any boxing experience. Tate is anticipated to be the most difficult test of his ring credentials due to his extensive background in the sport since an early age.

“We have also become aware that Jake Paul and his team intend to call Andrew out via a collection of YouTube/ Instagram videos; however, as stated before, there has been no official talks regarding a fight,” the source also said.
As a kickboxer, Tate has won 87 fights while losing just nine, with victories over people like former UFC contender Luke Barnatt. According to reports from YouTube Drama Alert show host.
