As he continues his boxing career, YouTuber Jake Paul has received offers to fight from various people. Some are athletes while others are social media stars.
Paul recently fought MMA legend Anderson Silva and beat him by unanimous decision. “The problem child” has become a hot commodity. It’s anyone’s guess if he’ll take on certain fights, but that doesn’t mean he won’t tease boxing fans.
That’s what he did when he posted a video of himself and the controversial Andrew Tate. The video says the two have started “negotiations” for a fight in the future.

Will Jake Paul fight Andrew Tate?
A Tate spokesman told Mirror Fighting after the above video was released: “Negotiations between the two parties have begun, it’s a fight fans have been asking about and it’s an event to remember the world becomes.”
Tate is a former kickboxer who has also competed in MMA. Known as “The King of Toxic Masculinity,” the Big Brother alum has been banned from multiple social media platforms for what he has said about women on podcasts, among other things.
Paul initially showed support for Tate after his ban. There were rumors of a fight between Tate and Jake’s brother Logan, who called Tate about his views.
“I don’t think he’s going to get in the ring with either of us,” Jake told the New York Post during an episode of Logan’s podcast ImPaulsive. “The risk is too great for him. He’s an “alpha male,” right? That’s his whole thing. And if he loses – he’ll lose to one of us he’s fighting – all his schtick and all the women will be like, ‘Yeah!’ and his whole schtick goes out the window.”
Tate was also called out by KSI. Nothing is official yet as there is no fixed date or location for a possible clash.

Will Jake Paul fight Tommy Fury?
Jake Paul and Tommy Fury have been preparing for a fight for years and endured a whirlwind of rivalry. Paul and Fury were expected to fight twice in the past year. Fury pulled out of a fight with Paul in December 2021 due to a rib injury. Tyron Woodley eventually took his place, and Paul knocked out the former UFC champion.
The two were then scheduled to fight each other in August. Visa issues for Fury forced the fight to be called off again. He was denied entry to the United States. The problem was with his ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authority) documents.
Since then, Paul has challenged Tommy’s half-brother and WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury. John Fury, Tommy’s father, told Mirror Fighting that not long ago he spoke to Paul’s team about bringing the fight back to the table with Tommy. The fight would most likely have to take place in the UK as John is also not allowed to go to the US
Love Island star Tommy last fought in April, beating Daniel Bocianski on points. Tommy will face Paul Bamba on November 13th on Floyd Mayweather-Deji’s undercard. Paul will be present at the Dubai event to keep a close eye on Tommy’s fight.
Will Jake Paul fight KSI?
Paul and KSI have been in a war of words since 2018. Jake’s brother Logan ended up fighting KSI twice in a boxing ring. Since those fights, Jake and KSI have fought each other on and off. Now, a clash between the two YouTubers seems closer than ever.
In August, KSI challenged Paul to fight at Wembley Stadium in London next year. The opponent’s wallet would be at stake.

“I’ll send you a contract,” KSI said. “We fight next year. Wembley Stadium. The winner of the fight takes everything. One hundred percent of the wallet will be at stake. Put your money into action and let’s finally finish this. Will you accept?”
Paul agreed to the fight and then made another bet: the loser would have to admit that the winner is the better boxer. KSI and Paul will both be at the Mayweather Deji event. Deji is KSI’s brother while Paul defeated Deji in a boxing match years ago. There’s a chance that KSI and Paul will clash before anything can even be made official.
KSI will reportedly return to the ring in January. If he beats his opponent, we could be on a collision course for the ultimate YouTube boxing match.
Will Jake Paul fight Nate Diaz?
Diaz ended his UFC contract with a win over Tony Ferguson at UFC 279. While his post-UFC future is unknown, the Stockton, California native wouldn’t say no to a boxing match.
Diaz was at the Paul Silva fight to cheer on his teammate Chris Avila who defeated Doctor Mike. He didn’t seem to dismiss a possible fight with Paul when speaking to iD Boxing.
“(Paul) is definitely one of the options,” Diaz said of MMA Fighting ahead of the Paul Silva fight. “He does big things. He does big things. He has a big fight ahead of him. If he wins this, I’m sure people will be impressed. And when Anderson does his thing on him, that’s impressive too. Now we have a fight ahead of us. I look forward to it. (Paul vs. Silva is) 50-50. I dont know. We’ll see what happens.”
Paul has said in the past that he has beef with Diaz. This was made even clearer when Team Diaz and Team Paul got into a backstage skirmish on fight night.
