Footage emerges of Andrew Tate getting knocked out during kickboxing bout

Tate describes himself as “the most dangerous man on the planet”

Video footage of self-confessed sexist Andrew Tate getting knocked out is circulating the internet.

The kickboxer and – worryingly – influencer has come under fire in recent weeks, with hundreds of videos displaying his horrific views on women going viral.

Tate, 35, describes himself as “the most dangerous man on the planet” and thinks women are “barely sentient”.

He’s been in videos that have been viewed 11.6 billion times.

The British-American kickboxing millionaire, who also owns multiple casinos, claims to have 87 fights and just nine losses to his name.

Footage of Tate being KO-ed by an opponent is now spreading across social media.

The video shows Tate competing against Franci Gran at the ‘Enfusion 3: Trial of the Gladiators’ tournament in 2012. Tate is hit and kicked multiple times before he drops to the bottom of the ring after being knocked out cold.

Tate, born in Chicago but raised in Luton, appeared on Big Brother in 2016. But he was kicked off the show after a video emerged of him hitting a woman with a belt and threatening to “f***ing kill” her if she messages other men.

The 35-year-old, who now lives in Romania, claimed the clip was a “kinky sex video” and they were just acting out a role play.

Police were called to Tate’s Romanian home in April after the US embassy sent a tip that a woman was being held there against her will. Two women were found in Tate’s home and the case, which was later expanded to cover rape and human trafficking allegations, is still ongoing.

Tate moved to Romania after abuse allegations in the UK. In one video, Tate said he moved to Romania because it would allegedly be easier to evade rape convictions in Romania than in the UK.

He has been accused of spreading ‘rape culture’ by openly talking about hitting and choking women, and going as far to say that rape victims should “bear responsibility” for their attacks.

Last week, TikTok confirmed it is investigating Tate’s content and said misogyny is not tolerated on its platform.

As of Friday, August 19, he has been banned from Instagram and Facebook by Meta.
