Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier, Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Tommy Hearns, Rocky Marciano vs. Jersey Joe Walcott … and Chris Brown vs. Soulja Boy (cue record scratch). Come again? Yeah, you read it correctly.
In a video released on his Instagram account, former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson announced that he will train Chris Brown for his upcoming bout against Soulja Boy.
The hip-hop artists have been embroiled in a bitter feud over comments Soulja Boy made about Brown’s ex, Karrueche Tran. Their ongoing social media beef has escalated to a pugilistic showdown between the two in Las Vegas in March that will air on Pay-Per-View.
Meanwhile, former boxing champ Floyd Mayweather revealed that he’ll be training Soulja Boy. In an interview with Hollywood Unlocked, Mayweather said, “I think the best way to resolve any problem is to do it the old-school way. Physical. The guys can’t come to a resolution by communicating, so they should do it physical, with the gloves on. I think it will be really entertaining. I think Soulja Boy is an unbelievable entertainer, and so is Chris Brown. I think a lot of people want to see those two come together and make an explosion.”
