In a celebrity boxing match that’s already taking plenty of twists and turns, former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson announces that he’ll be manning the corner for Chris Brown as he gets ready to fight Soulja Boy on PPV.
“I’m gonna teach him how to bite somebody’s ear. Yeah, that’s right,” he said in a video on Instagram.
“I’m gonna teach him every dirty trick in the book to knock you out. Because I’m not going to teach him how to run.”
Soulja Boy is going to be trained by another former boxing champ, Floyd Mayweather, who announced the bout on Instagram.
The pair posted several videos and pictures mocking and threatening each other as the argument heated up.
Soulja Boy posted about the fight but has since deleted it from Instagram. He 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.”
Chris Brown told his Instagram followers that 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.”
50 Cent has backed Soulja Boy for the win and says he’ll be placing a $100,000 (£80,619) bet on the outcome.
And since we’re now officially blending boxing with the music industry, it’s only right that Mike Tyson releases his own diss track aimed at Soulja Boy.
And regardless of how ridiculous this whole thing seems, there does appear to be a genuine belief that this event can rake in some serious dollars…
