Andrew Tate has praised Jake Paul as he continues on his journey competing in the world of boxing whilst suggesting how a fight between the pair would play out. Paul will face a step up in competition in his next matchup when he is tasked with defeating the former UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva.
Andrew Tate was recently interviewed by Rob Moore, sharing his opinions on a variety of topics including the growth of internet personalities competing in combat sports. One man whose name was mentioned during this conversation was ‘The Problem Child,’ Jake Paul.
Tate revealed that he had been involved in a conversation that would have seen him fight the undefeated Paul, but things never came to fruition. Speaking on the matter Tate highlighted the difference between Jake Paul and the rest of these internet superstars who are trying their hand at combat sports as well as how he believes a fight between himself, and Paul would play out.
‘That was in conversation at some point. I think Jake Paul is a man who is very dedicated to his craft, and he is not just a YouTuber, Jake Paul is a boxer. He spends his life training, he has a lot of money, a lot of time, and a lot of resources. The idea that he is just a YouTuber is foolish.“
“KSI is just a YouTuber. Jake Paul is a boxer, and he is certainly the best of all the influencers who are fighting today hands down.“
“Would I fight him? Well, there is not a man on earth I wouldn’t fight it just depends on the scenario, depends on the situation. For me to fight Jake Paul it wouldn’t be for money because I don’t need money. It wouldn’t be for influence because I am more famous than him. It would be either a personal beef or me deciding that it was good for me and my brand.“
“It would be a decision I make very consciously but I couldn’t be bought into it. It couldn’t be to say ‘hey you’ll be famous’ I am the most famous man on the plan I couldn’t care.“
“But certainly, he would be the only challenge of any of them, he wouldn’t be easy to beat, I would knock him asleep of course but it would take more than one round. But the rest of them are all just clowns but Jake Paul is in a different league to the rest of them.“
