Jake Paul says Tuchel would knockout Conte and he ‘would pay money to see it’

Jake Paul has said that Thomas Tuchel would knock Antonio Conte after the two managers tried to weigh one another in on the touchline on Sunday afternoon.

In a typically-charged London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham, while the challenges while flying in there were fisticuffs off it. On two separate occasions, the coaches clashed after some controversial moments.

Both managers were booked after the first incident that saw Conte wildly celebrate a goal in Tuchel's face as he complained to the fourth official over a foul. And at full-time, there was further fury when the two bosses shook hands with the Chelsea coach refusing to let go – leading to another round in the ring.

Watching from across the pond was YouTube personality and wannabe boxer Jake Paul, who firmly put himself in Tuchel's corner. Furthermore, the multimillionaire insisted that he would pay good money to see the two coaches have at it in a proper scrap.

He tweeted: "Fear is clear when you don’t look at your opponent in their eyes. Tuchel would KO Conte and I would pay money to see it."

It led to a fair reaction from both sides as one Chelsea fan said: "Best thing you’ve ever tweeted tbh." While another wrote: "This is a rare Jake Paul W."

However, on the other side of the coin, one supporter wrote: "You clearly know nothing about Conte." And a second posted: "He’s so clueless ahahaha Conte is genuinely a psychopath."

Both managers were sent off by Anthony Taylor at full-time after an entertaining game that ended 2-2. Chelsea looked a dominant force when they went a goal up through Kalidou Koulibaly but could not make their possession count for goals.

Spurs came back when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg equalised but Kai Havertz appeared to be fouled prior to the goal, leading to Tuchel's ire. Reece James restored Chelsea's lead only for Harry Kane to head home in the 96th minute to send the away fans into a frenzy.
