Andrew Tate admits he turned down the Floyd Mayweather fight for a big reason | Boxing | Sport | Biden News


Andrew Tate has revealed that he was offered a fight against Floyd Mayweather but he couldn’t bring himself to accept it as he is his hero. The controversial internet personality is a former world kickboxing champion and has been linked to several financial fights in recent months.

Logan and Jake Paul have both already called The Cobra. However, Tate – who retired from combat sports in 2020 with a 43-9 kickboxing record and a 1-0 professional MMA record – doesn’t appear to be interested in entertaining a return to the squared circle.

Tate ignored Logan’s call by gifting him a £4.3 million ($5m) Bugatti supercar instead. Meanwhile, Jake was taken seriously with Tate and his brother Tristan meeting with Children’s Crisis Manager Nakisa Bidarian in August to discuss the fight – but nothing happened.

Now, Tate has revealed that he has also been approached to face Mayweather during an interview with podcaster Rob Moore.

“I like his style; everyone said he was bored. He’s not boring and if you appreciate the defense, he’s the best he’s ever been. So, I can’t beat myself up, I have few heroes, but he is one of them.

Since retiring from professional boxing in 2017, Mayweather has continued to box in exhibition bouts around the world. His next fight comes against YouTube star Deji Olatunji on November 13 at the Coca-Cola Stadium in Dubai.

This will mark TBE’s fifth post-retirement bout with kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa, the aforementioned Logan Paul, former partner Don Moore, and MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura.
