However, a spokesperson for Tate denied the claims but declared a fight would be a global event.

The spokesperson told Mirror Boxing: ““There are currently no productive talks with Jake Paul’s team regarding a fight between him and Andrew.

“We are aware that due to the rise in Andrew’s popularity it’s a fight the world wants to see.

“However, at this moment in time, there is nothing to report.”

Paul, who has over 20 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, was due to fight Hasim Rahman Jr this weekend before the event was called off at the last minute.

The 25-year-old declared himself the “most feared man in boxing” and called out Rahman for his “lack off professionalism” in moving the goalposts over the weight range agreed for their fight.

Rahman himself was a late substitution for former Love Island star Tommy Fury, who has now cancelled two fights with Paul.

And now with Paul targeting October for his next fight, Tate has been earmarked as a contender.

Tate himself has appeared on Big Brother, but was removed from the show after a video emerged online of him appearing to strike a woman.

More recently Tate has grown popular on social media platforms Instagram and TikTok despite not having an official account on the latter, with his often controversial takes driving fierce debate among viewers.

His net worth is reported to be at least £16.2m.

Tate’s spokesperson added: “We have also become aware that Jake Paul and his team intend to call Andrew out via a collection of YouTube/ Instagram videos.

“However, as stated before, there has been no official talks regarding a fight.”

Paul’s record in boxing currently stands at five wins and zero losses.
