Andrew Tate and Jake Paul: Ring-a-Ring-a-Roses

The two modern day gladiators were in Dubai to see Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition match against Deji Olatunji.

Andrew Tate, prior to his internet blitz, was active as a kickboxer. Fighting in the Cruiserweight division, in 2009 he won the International Sports Kickboxing Championship in Great Britain. However, it must be pointed out that his subsequent journey on the Internet was not so illustrious. Tate is notorious for posting bizarre things and making outrageous claims on social media and in public.

Jake Paul’s journey, on the other hand, is much more public. At the height of his popularity, in 2018, he and his older brother Logan took on British YouTubers Olatunji brothers. While Logan lost, Jake defeated Deji by a technical knockout.

Since then, junior Paul’s boxing journey has climbed the ladder of success. The selection insinuations of his opponents drag on. His boxing record stands at six clear wins against zero losses. Four of his wins were knockouts.

As far as allegations and counter-allegations go, his life outside of the ring mimics Tate’s.

If they face each other, the question of the winner is a delight for bettors. Pundits favor the American because he’s vastly improved for all intents and purposes. Despite his past as a kickboxer, Andrew has never been tested in a boxing ring.

In August, when Jake’s manager Nakisa Bidarian met Andrew Tate, rumors of an upcoming fight gathered momentum. But it remained a chimera despite Jacques-Pauleagerness in the project.
