Chris Brown is to fight his rapper foe Soulja Boy in a $1m celebrity boxing match to take place in March in Las Vegas. The two artists have spent the best part of this week embroiled in an online spat, which culminated with the Crank That rapper announcing the fight.
The idea for a fight gained steam after Mayweather posted a fight poster featuring the two musicians. The image notably explains that the three-round bout is coming soon to pay-per-view. Mayweather’s TMT and Mayweather Promotions logos are also present.
Writing on Instagram, Soulja Boy said “It’s going down! Signed my contract I’m leaving the fight with $1,000,000 I got the best ever my big bro @floydmayweather training me damn😈👊🏾 #TMT #SODMG March in Vegas !! On TV”
According to the rapper, the bout will take place in March in Las Vegas and in his corner will be one of the sports all-time greats.
Responding to the announcement Chris Brown told his followers it was time to stop talking. “Now that we have your undivided attention, boxing match set,” the singer wrote. “Legally. Man to Man. No more dissing and no more talking. We in the ring with it. Challenge accepted.”
