YouTube sensation KSI has reignited his rivalry with ex-kickboxer Andrew Tate, stating he would “destroy” him in a boxing fight after watching his viral sparring footage.
KSI is set to return to the ring against Joe Fournier this weekend at Wembley Arena as he looks to secure potential fights with Tommy Fury or Jake Paul.
Sparring Footage Goes Viral
Andrew Tate has not competed professionally in kickboxing for a while but has kept himself busy on social media, posting controversial views on society and training in the gym.
Tate has been trying to secure a potential fight against Jake Paul, but no negotiations have taken place yet.
Tate recently posted a video of himself sparring with TikTok star Robert Alexandru, where he was on the back foot throughout the session.
The clip went viral, with many social media users questioning Tate’s fighting ability.
KSI watched the footage and delivered his verdict on the former fighting champion, stating he would “absolutely destroy” Andrew Tate.
KSI has had several boxing fights against other social media stars, but Tate has never fought in traditional boxing.
Despite this, the potential fight between KSI and Tate looked like it could happen at one point, but it appears KSI has changed his mind.
Tate has been making headlines for his controversial views on women, which has resulted in him being banned from social media platforms in the past.
KSI has been vocal about his opposition to Tate’s views, and it remains unclear if Tate will be given a platform to fight on due to his public views.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding the fight, the chance for Tate to step into the ring may have risen after his reappearance in gloves.
Tate has significant fighting experience in kickboxing, but it remains to be seen if he can translate this into traditional boxing.
