Andrew Tate was a world-class kickboxer who won four championships before he became famous for posting his controversial opinions on social media.
The American first gained notoriety after he was expelled from Big Brother’s 17th season due to a video that showed him punching a lady in an altercation he later referred to as consensual.
Tate is a mix of his bizarre worldviews and luxurious lifestyle, which everyone who uses TikTok may be aware of. The 35-year-old self-described trillionaire has recently become a hit.
But before social media stardom, Tate was just a kickboxer who once competed on an off night.
Tate reached the championship round of a competition called Enfusion 3: Trial of the Gladiators before becoming well-known online. He attempted to become the finest 85 kg kickboxer in the world, but he was unsuccessful.
After receiving a barrage of punches from his opponent Franci Grajš, Tate retreated towards the ropes. Gaji then launched a flying knee that struck cleanly and knocked Tate out cold.
Tate asserted that this is the only occasion he has ever been knocked out. He recently discussed how he handled the most devastating defeat of his career.
In an interview with The Fellas podcast, Tate said,
“I’ve been knocked out cold once. Only once in 87 , which is good for a career. I wouldn’t say it hurts. You don’t remember much, it’s much like a dream. You’re furious afterwards.”
Tate has been attempting to utilize his recent rise to prominence to get a lucrative bout with Jake Paul. Jake has become one of the greatest boxing stars after making the jump from YouTube and winning five consecutive boxing matches against non boxers.
Paul is also supporter of female athletes. He helped facilitate historic clash between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano in which both got career-high paydays for their clash at Madison Square Garden earlier this year.
Paul told his brother in the Impaulsive podcast:
“Andrew Tate’s fans are all virgins, and they’re watching him to try get laid. But they’re going to get spit on and slapped by a girl, that’s what’s gonna happen.”
The 25-year-old is eager to face Tate if he beats his brother Logan. The elder Paul wants to box again after previously taking on KSI and Floyd Mayweather.
“Andrew, if my brother doesn’t f*** you up, I will and it has to go down,” Paul asserted.
He added, “I don’t think he gets in the ring with one of us. I think its too big of a risk for him because he’s alpha male, right?”
“That’s his whole entire thing. And when he loses, he will lose to either one of us he fights, his whole schtick and all the women will be like, Yeah! and his whole schtick goes out the window.”
Since Tommy Fury and Hasim Rahman Jr withdrew from the boxing bout scheduled for August 6 at Madison Square Garden, Jake is presently seeking his next opponent.
