Emory Andrew Tate III (born December 1, 1986) is a British-American kickboxer, commmentator and businessman.

As a kickboxer, Tate is a 3-time ISKA world champion and Enfusion champion. Born in Washington, DC, he fought out of Luton, England, until his retirement. Tate made his return in February 2020 at KO Masters 7 in Bucharest, Romania, where he currently resides.[3]

Career[edit]

After defeating former super cruiserweight British champions Ollie Green and Mo Karbo, Tate faced Paul Randle for the vacant International Sport Karate Association (ISKA) English Light Cruiserweight title.[4] On April 25, 2009, Tate beat Randle in the fifth round of their bout in Derby, England, winning his first ever belt and title.[5]

Tate later scored a few more victories and won the International Kickboxing Federation (IKF) British Cruiserweight title against Daniel Hughes with a first-round KO in 2009. On March 19, 2011, he fought his first world title match in France.[6][7] Tate lost the fight for the vacant ISKA World Full-Contact Light Heavyweight Championship to Jean-Luc Benoit on points after 12 rounds. They had a rematch three months later in Luton, England, but this time Tate became champion, defeating Benoit via KO in round 8 of the scheduled 12 rounds.[8][9]

Tate lost his It's Showtime 85MAX title against Sahak Parparyan on May 12, 2012, in Kortrijk, Belgium, on points.[10]

On December 2, 2012, Tate participated in Enfusion 3: Trial of the Gladiators to determine the world's No. 1 kickboxer in the 85 kg category. He qualified for the tournament in August 2011 in Ohrid, Macedonia, stopping Sammy Masa by second-round KO and Adnan Omeragić by first-round KO.[11] He scored a victory in the semi-finals, knocking out Ritchie Hocking with punches in the first round, but lost in the final via a first-round flying knee KO from Franci Grajš, who fought in the semi-final against Sahak Parparyan.[12][13]

Tate avenged a 2011 loss to Vincent Petitjean and won his second ISKA world title in 12 rounds of two minutes. The fight was held in Châteaurenard, France, on March 9, 2013, with Tate taking the ISKA World Full-Contact Light Cruiserweight Championship via split decision.[14][15][16][17] Tate defended the title one year later, beating Cyril Vetter early in the first round.[18][19]

After taking four victories in the Enfusion ring during 2013 over David Radeff, Marino Schouten, Marlon Hunt, and Laszlo Szabo, Tate participated in a four-man tournament to determine the Enfusion 85 kg World Champion, alongside Mirko Cingel, Jiří Žák, and Rustam Guseinov. Held in Žilina, Slovakia, on April 26, 2014, Tate lost in the semi-finals to local fighter and tournament winner, Miroslav Cingel, via unanimous decision.[20][21]

Tate later fought for the Enfusion 90 kg World Champion title against kickboxing veteran Wendell Roche on June 28, 2014. Tate won in the second round,[22][23] becoming one of only two fighters to achieve a TKO against Roche.[24]

After winning the Enfusion title, Tate fought Liang Ling at the K-1 China vs. USA event. He defeated Ling by unanimous decision.[25] 23 months later, Tate was scheduled to defend his Enfusion title against Ibrahim El Boustati. El Boustati would win the fight by a first round TKO.[26]

Tate returned to kickboxing, following a four year absence, to fight Miralem Ahmeti at KO Masters 7. Tate won the fight by a first round knockout.[27]

Personal life[edit]

He commentated for Real Xtreme Fighting (RXF), the largest MMA promotion in Romania. Andrew and his brother Tristan Tate, a former mixed martial artist, reside in Bucharest, Romania where they operate business. They are well known for their car collection which contains expensive vehicles such as the Lamborghini Huracan, Ferrari 812 Superfast, McLaren 720S, McLaren 765LT and Bugatti Chiron.[45]

Tate's father Emory Tate was an International Master of chess. Andrew Tate is of African-American and English descent, and has two younger siblings: his brother Tristan (who appeared in Shipwrecked: The Island) and his sister Janine.[46]

In 2016, Tate competed as an "other" housemate on the 17th season of the British version of the reality television series Big Brother. One week into the show, Tate was removed from the show for actions outside the house prior to the competition.[47] It was later revealed that Tate had been removed due to a video, obtained by The Sun, of him allegedly "hitting a girl with a belt".[48] Tate said that the actions were consensual, the belt was actually made of felt, and that The Sun had edited the video significantly to make him look bad.[48] In a Facebook video, he claimed the real reason he was removed was because the program's producers were "worried" about his "master plan",[48] which was denied by Channel 5.[49]
