Let’s get ready to rumble. The Chris Brown and Soulja Boy boxing match is reportedly set to go down later this month and now, even more celebrities are getting involved.
Soulja has confirmed that he will be trained by Floyd Mayweather as part of the boxing champ’s Money Team. Meanwhile, 50 Cent says Breezy has a champion trainer of his own—Mike Tyson.
“Floyd is supposed to be training him, but I kind of feel like Floyd want to train him and shit so he can beat me,” 50 said in a video on Instagram. “How you gonna train this ni**a, all of a sudden? You is the promoter. You ain’t supposed to be training the fighter…But since he got Floyd Mayweather, I just got off the phone with Iron Mike Tyson. Iron Mike is gonna train Chris Brown.”
The G-Unit general then shared a snippet of his Tyson conversation, in which the legendary fighter says he’s betting on Brown to win the match. “Soulja Boy’s gon’ get fucked up by a yellow ni**a,” Tyson says in the clip. “Chris Brown’s yellow ass gon’ fuck Soulja Boy up.”
Boxer and promoter Adrien Broner has also said he will be training Brown. Both Broner and Mayweather claim they’ll be promoting the fight, which is now set to take place Jan. 28.
“We pushing for this to happen asap y’all ain’t trying to keep y’all waiting I promise this will be a great show,” said Broner.
The feud between the two artists began last week. Soulja claims it started when he liked a Karrueche Tran photo on Instagram, causing Breezy to get upset. While Brown has denied those claims, he later confirmed the feud and the fight with a series of since-deleted Instagram videos.
