Yesterday we posted that Andrew Tate, who challenges Sahak Parparyan for his It's Showtime 85MAX World Title on May 12, offered to bet €1000 that he would defeat Sahak and take the title. Sahak fired back today by way of It's Showtime, and he's offered to up the stakes even more.
Much like Joe Schilling and Simon Marcus did for their fight on February 25, Sahak offered to bet his entire purse on the fight. The winner walks away with both his and his opponent's purse, and the loser gets nothing.
Aside from the purse bet, Sahak also had some strong words for Andrew Tate:
"He should be happy if he survives 5 rounds with me. And if he does, he needs a visit to the hospital and he'll have to eat through a straw. Also, after he fights me, he won't be able to walk for a while. Andrew Tate fought nothing but cans. This time he will find out the difference between fighting a champion and fighting a pipsqueak."
This fight piled with the trash talk in the lead-up to the fight has generated a bit more genuine interest for the card. It's nice to see It's Showtime putting out content with the fighters leading up to their events and hopefully they do it more in the future, as it's a good way to create more buzz.
