Former kickboxing champion Andrew Tate has shown his support for Deontay Wilder, the former world heavyweight champion, who was recently arrested in Los Angeles on a charge of possession of a concealed weapon.
While serving his own house arrest in Romania, Tate took to Twitter to send his message of solidarity to Wilder, who was released on bond after a routine traffic stop led to his arrest.
A Show of Support Amid Legal Issues
Andrew Tate, who has faced his own legal battles and is currently under house arrest, has remained active on social media throughout his ordeal.
Despite his own challenges, he expressed support for Deontay Wilder following the news of the arrest. Wilder cryptically addressed his followers with the statement, “I’d rather be safe than sorry. The End.”
In response, Tate tweeted, “Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6 my G,” showing his backing for the hard-hitting heavyweight.
Arrest Details and Release
Deontay Wilder was stopped by police in the early hours of the morning during a routine traffic stop. The officers noted illegal window tinting and an obstructed license plate.
TMZ reports that the arrest was related to a firearm. However, the Media Relations Division of the Los Angeles Police Department did not provide a comment on the arrest at the time of publication.
Wilder was able to post a $35,000 bond and was released at 6:34 am.
Deontay Wilder’s Boxing Return
While dealing with the aftermath of his arrest, Deontay Wilder is currently preparing for his return to the boxing ring.
He last fought in October, defeating Robert Helenius by knockout.
Discussions are underway for a potential December showdown with Anthony Joshua, which has generated considerable excitement among fans and the boxing community.
Andrew Tate’s Legal Situation
Andrew Tate, a four-time world kickboxing champion, continues to face legal issues of his own.
He and his brother Tristan, a former European champion kickboxer, were arrested and placed in temporary detention last year as part of an investigation into alleged human trafficking and forming an organized crime group.
While they were released in March, Andrew remains under house arrest until May 29.
Both brothers gained widespread attention through their controversial social media presence, which sparked debates and concerns about their views on women and their impact on society.
Despite facing a ban from social media platforms due to his reportedly misogynistic views, Andrew Tate managed to regain access to his Twitter profile and amassed a significant following.
This resurgence coincided with Elon Musk’s takeover of the company and his decision to reinstate certain controversial accounts.
Tate’s online presence has continued to attract attention and followers, even amidst his legal troubles.
