Paul’s post on Twitter simply stated: “Negotiations”. It captioned a video in which Paul and Tate step towards each other and stare down in front of a boxing ring.

Tate had previously said that any return to the combat sport world would have to be on “his terms”.

Is a bout close?

The footage shared on social media earlier appeared to confirm that Paul and Tate are in negotiations for a boxing match. Paul is due to return to the ring on 14 January 2023, his opponent has not been confirmed.

Paul had previously weighed in on Tate being banned from social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Tik Tok on his BS with Jake Paul podcast in September. Paul argued Tate should be given “a second chance” on social media.

However, he also taunted the kick-boxer saying that he wouldn’t risk his “alpha male appearance” to fight either of the Paul brothers. It came amid heavy speculation that Tate could be Paul’s next opponent in the ring.

The Daily Express reports that since retiring from combat sports in 2020, Andrew Tate had listed the True Geordie, Logan Paul and Twitch star HasanAbi on a hitlist for a potential comeback fight.
