Kickboxer Andrew Tate, aged 36, has been linked to a potential comeback in the ring, especially since his online popularity surged over the past year. While his combat sports career saw the British fighter, who has American roots, competing in both MMA and kickboxing, the emergence of influencer-driven boxing has tied his name to potential clashes with figures like Paul, Logan, and KSI.
Tate boasts a remarkable record as a four-time world champion in kickboxing, accumulating a final tally of 76 wins and 9 losses. However, it's worth noting that he never had the opportunity to showcase his skills in prestigious competitions like Glory or K1. In a chance encounter at a boxing gym in November of the previous year, "Cobra" Tate and Paul dropped hints about a possible showdown.
Unfortunately, the plans have likely been derailed by Tate's detainment in Romania, making the prospect of their clash distant.
