Chris Brown and Soulja Boy will meet in the boxing ring to settle their scores. After a week of social media scuffle, the two rappers have announced their upcoming celebrity boxing match, which will be aired live on Pay-Per-View.
Soulja Boy has announced the boxing match against Chris Brown on Instagram, through a poster. “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”, the hip hopper captioned the picture, adding that the match will be aired live, from Vegas, in March.
Chris Brown made his own version of the announcement, with a hilarious Muhammad Ali inspired picture.
While Soulja Boy is training with Floyd Mayweather, Chris Brown’s trainer will be Mike Tyson. Mayweather posted another poster of the boxing match, which reads “Put the guns down…and put on the gloves.” His trainee called the upcoming match “the biggest fight of the century” in this Instagram video, while Mayweather is more than sure they are going to walk out with the money.
Later on, Soulja Boy, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, dubbed their duo “The Money Team”.
The beef started between the two hip hop artists since the first days of 2017. Soulja Boy, 26, tweeted on January 3 that Chris Brown, 27, called him to stop liking Karreuche Tran’s pics. “Chris brown just called me and said he wanna fight me because I liked @karrueche picture on Instagram this nigga a bitch ????”. And just minutes later, he tweeted again: “Aye @chrisbrown pull up nigga I’ll knock yo Bitch Ass out stop snorting so much coke nigga. FRUITS???” He continued tweeting that Brown thinks he’s tough because he hit a woman.
Brown retaliated, posting on Instagram that Soulja Boy has “imaginary beef” and then started picking on his hairline.
Rapper 50 Cent, 41, liked the boxing idea, too. In a recent Instagram video, the rapper said he will be betting $100,000 on Brown. “Call Floyd and tell him specifically I said, ‘bet 100,000.’ I’ll bet 100,000 on Chris, he can bet 100,000 on Soulja Boy”, he said, adding he also wanted to meet Soulja Boy in the boxing ring.
