Jake Paul targets fight with controversial kickboxer Andrew Tate

Jake Paul is reportedly eyeing a mega-money fight with controversial kickboxer Andrew Tate.

Paul was set to face Hasim Rahman Jr at Madison Square Garden this weekend but the fight was cancelled after the YouTube star accused his rival of deliberately avoiding their 205lb weight limit.

Paul will likely pursue another test from a whole host of call-outs  including TikTok star Tate, 35, who has shot to fame in recent years.

Tate claims to have had 87 fights and nine losses as a kickboxer with  his wins including the scalp of former UFC star Luke Barnatt.

He has been in the headlines for displaying his plush lifestyle and  making some controversial comments on his social media platforms.

A report from YouTube Drama Alert show host Keemstar suggest that Paul  is 'targeting' a fight with Tate which could be worth a lucrative deal  for the pair.

Paul's brother Logan also confirmed that the pair will appear on his podcast Impaulsive in due course and will deliver a "special message" to Tate ahead of a potential meeting.

Tate is the son of a chess master and claims to have huge fleet of  super-cars including a Bugatti Chiron which costs an estimated  £3.4million.

Paul is yet to face a fighter with any background in boxing and has  facing significant criticism despite missing out on fights with Tommy Fury and Rahman Jr.

"I'm not some washed-up UFC fighter and I'm not smaller than him, I  would beat the living s*** out of him and if he wants to fight I'll  fight him any day of the f****ng week.

He's very smart with his 'I'm just a YouTuber angle'.

The guy's not a jack*** and the fact he puts this spin on it is very smart."

He also teases many of his guests on their lack of wealth, and  encourages them to sign up to his Hustlers University scheme to learn  how to make money.
