- Andrew Tate has revealed he would fight Conor McGregor if he had a personal problem with him.
- Tate would not face Mike Tyson for ‘any amount of money’
Internet sensation Andrew Tate first gained attention as a professional kickboxer. The four-time world champion made headlines on social media for his controversial take on many different topics relating to culture and society at large. Although he has long moved on from his days of competing inside the ring, he has not dismissed a comeback.
Andrew Tate reveals what would make him fight Conor McGregor
In a recent interview with Rob Moore, Andrew Tate shared his thoughts on a potential clash with former UFC two-division champion McGregor.
“That’s an interesting one. He’s still in his prime. I’m a lot bigger than him. He’s very good, very capable. We’d certainly have a lot of good trash talk. It would make a lot of money but again, I would need a personal problem with him, to fight him.”
Tate further explained what he meant by having a ‘personal problem’ by referencing his feud with popular YouTuber True Geordie.
“The people I want to fight, like True Geordie. The story behind me and True Geordie is very simple. He found out I ran a webcam company. When I was giving my insights on male and female dynamics, saying that I know these things… he did a takedown video on me saying I only know wh***s.”
Tate would not fight Mike Tyson for any amount of money
Andrew Tate admitted boxing legend Mike Tyson would have been the better fighter during his reign at the top and explained why he would not accept a fight with him now that he is past his prime.
“No, because he is now old. It would be an absolute tragic shame to knock out an old version of his prime self. It doesn’t feel fair. Prime Tyson would have ripped me apart in a boxing match. I’m not a boxer. Perhaps, if I was a boxer and heavier, maybe I can make a bunch of stories.
“But the truth is I’m a kickboxer and it’s his ruleset, and he was Mike Tyson. He would’ve beaten me so to beat him past his prime just feels dishonorable. I would feel dirty for doing that. There’s no amount of money on the planet that could convince me to fight Mike Tyson.”
McGregor has been in recovery from a horrific leg break injury he suffered in his last bout in Jul. 2021. He is currently working on his Hollywood debut and has plans to return to the octagon sometime next year.
