“Corba Tate” Calls Out Schilling
Andrew Tate is a four time world champion and initially from a full contact kickboxing background who, made the smooth transition to K1 rules. He was also born in America but emigrated to the UK as a teenager. “Cobra Tate” is returning from a two year layoff but insists that the time away from the sport has done him wonders in allowing his body to repair itself from numerous past injuries. The time off has not cooled off Tate’s tongue, he spoke with The Striking Corner’s Anoop Hothi and had some choice words for Bellator Kickboxing fighter Joe Schilling.
“Joe Schilling’s been avoiding me since forever. I don’t even want to talk about him, he’s just afraid to fight me and he keeps getting knocked out anyway. I would’ve spanked him. So he knows I would’ve spanked him. He knew he was gonna get sparked that’s why he wouldn’t fight me. Before GLORY existed we were supposed to fight. I was supposed to fight for GLORY many times. I signed contracts but fights never materialized many times."
Joe "Stich’em Up" Schilling is a very vocal fighter and one of the more well known American kickboxer/muay thai athletes in the country. Tate would be wise to call out Schilling since coming off of his long layoff to get back into the fight game and in the sight line of the media. It is still unclear if Schilling has seen or reacted to the choice words Tate had for him.
Andrew Tate will defend his 90kg Enfusion Live world championship in The Hague, Netherlands on December 3, against Enfusion’s current 85kg world champion, Ibrahim El Boustati who, is undefeated in all 44 career fights he has had to-date. Known as “The Beast”, because he has torn through the 85kg division including, a recent decision win over GLORY kickboxer, Filip Verlinden.
