In a video posted to Twitter earlier today, the pair squared up to one another shirtless with a mediator between them. Paul captioned the post "negotiations" which has led fans to believe that the two are setting up a fight very soon.

The news comes as the feud between the two fighters heated up over the past few months. Last year, Tate offered the 25-year-old $3 million for a fight and claimed in a video that the YouTuber-turned-professional-athlete needed a "reality check," TMZ reports.

"Jake Paul, it’s clear to me you are desperate for a reality check. Let me explain something to you about combat sports.

"There are a whole bunch of men out here who will never be as famous as you, will never make the money you’ve made — who would kick the living f**k out of you. I’m one of the lucky ones. I made a little bit of money. I don’t have 50 million to bet with you, but I do have 3 million to bet with you."

In response, Paul took to his brother's podcast to taunt Tate, adding that he would never fight either of them.

"I don’t think he gets in the ring with one of us," Paul said, per TMZ. "It’s too big of a risk for him. He’s 'alpha male', right? That’s his whole entire thing.

"And when he loses - he will lose to either one of us he fights - his whole schtick and all the women will be like, 'Yeah!' and his whole schtick goes out the window."

Jake Paul and Andrew Tate finally come face-to-face:

Tate is known to be somewhat of a controversial figure online, dominating the internet with his divisive and traditional views on the roles of men and women. Beyond his debates, he also provides people with online courses in 'modern wealth creation' in order to help them become successful.

And for some reason, he's also obsessed with telling people to go and get themselves a Bugatti. Apparently it's a huge indicator of success... Just don't ask why.

Either way, both figures have a massive fanbase so if this fight does go ahead, it's sure to be an interesting one. In fact, people are already taking to Twitter in droves to share their excitement.

"OMFG," one user wrote.

"I’d love to see this," another said.

"This bouta be his most liked tweet," a third added.

Despite some people being happy about the news of the two meeting in the boxing ring, others weren't too pleased.

"No. Absolutely not," @HHillierSmith tweeted.

"We’re not counting this as you fighting a professional boxer," another commented alluding to the fact that Paul is still yet to fight a "real" boxer.

Others also agreed with that stance, calling Paul out: "Still not fighting a boxer then..." but these comments were quickly shut down after people pointed out that Tate was actually a four-time ISKA kickboxing world champion with a respectable 43-9 record. Pretty impressive.
