Jake Paul believes Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel would knock out Spurs manager Antonio Conte after watching the two managers face off on Sunday.
Tempers were flying in the blistering heat of London at Stamford Bridge and the two managers were separated twice in the 2-2 Premier League draw.
In the first incident, the two were cautioned when Conte celebrated Pierre Hojbjerg’s equalizer past his rival, with Tuchel believing Kai Havertz had been fouled by Rodrigo Bentancur before the goal.
Full-time there was further tension as the two shook hands, with the Chelsea manager refusing to let go.
Tuchel explained that he thinks his counterpart should have looked him in the eye.
Boxer Jake Paul, who is looking across the Atlantic, believes that if the two ever come to blows, there will be a winner.
The 25-year-old insisted he would pay big bucks to see the two coaches face off in a real fight.
He tweeted: “Fear is clear when you don’t look your opponent in the eye. Tuchel would knock out Conte and I would pay to see him.

Both managers were sent off full-time by referee Anthony Taylor after an entertaining clash at the Bridge.
Senegal international Kalidou Koulibaly, who joined the club from Napoli in the summer, put the dominant Blues ahead in the 19th minute, sending home a powerful volley from Marc Cucurella’s corner.
Spurs equalized through midfielder Hojbjerg in the 68th minute only for Reece James to restore Chelsea’s lead.
This allowed Tuchel to take revenge with an exuberant celebration,
However, striker Harry Kane then headed in for a stoppage time equalizer to ensure his side walked away with a point.
Tuchel told talkSPORT after the game: “There’s nothing to regret. It’s like there’s a player who regrets a tackle where nobody gets hurt.
“We didn’t have a fist fight, we just had a little longer handshake and before that we had a few fights.
“We were fighting, he was fighting for his team, I was fighting for mine. No one was insulted, no one was hurt.
“It was like a fair tackle. We don’t apologize at the end of the match, it’s a fair tackle and that’s it.
“There was no need for red cards for us.”
