JAKE PAUL has revealed he’s open to fighting controversial kickboxer and fellow social media star Andrew Tate.
Former Big Brother contestant Tate called out the YouTuber turned boxer during a recent appearance on The Nelk Boys podcast.
Paul didn’t initially address the challenge, although he’s since admitted he’d happily throw down with the world champion kickboxer.
After revealing he’d once received an Instagram message from Tate, Paul said on brother Logan’s Impaulsive podcast: “He unsent it.
“But it shows that he tried to send me a message at some point.
“He called me out like two years ago and I remember seeing it and swiping because I was like ‘who is this guy?’
“There’s always someone calling me out.
“Then this interviewer asked me recently would I fight Andrew Tate and that’s when I started to see this guy pop up all over the internet.
“I was like, ‘Oh that’s Andrew Tate‘, but what I’m saying is that Andrew, if my brother doesn’t f*** you up, I will.”
As excited as he is to fight Tate, Paul doesn’t believe the 35-year-old will ever agree to share the ring with him.

He said: “It has to go down, but I don’t think he gets in the ring with one of us.
“It’s too big of a risk for him because he’s an alpha male, right?
“That’s his whole entire thing, and when he loses to either one of us that he fights, his whole shtick will go out of the window.”
Tate – who has made a string of misogynistic and abhorrent comments about sexual assault – recently claimed negotiations over a fight with The Problem Child are underway.
During a Twitch stream with Adin Ross, the Brit said: “I know everyone wants that.
“These are sophisticated negotiations that involve a lot of parties so we shouldn’t be talking about it on here.”
