Chris Brown and Soulja Boy agree to boxing match – with Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather to train hip hop rivals after long feud

January 25, 2022

HIP HOP superstars Chris Brown and Soulja Boy have agreed to stage a three round boxing match to settle their ongoing feud.

And the pair will turn to boxing legends Floyd Mayweather and Mike Tyson to help them train for the March bout – which will be shown live on pay-per-view in Las Vegas.

The beef apparently started after Soulja Boy liked a picture posted by one of Brown's exes on Instagram.

The pair then engaged in a long war of words over social media, with Soulja Boy even calling out Brown's daughter Royalty.

Brown responded: "Royalty is two and has five times more money that Soulja Boy already.

"I'd be mad too."


Brown also accused Soulja Boy of being a drug addict and a police informant.

Soulja Boy then offered to meet Brown in Compton for a street fight, but in a video gone wrong – some claim it was staged – Soulja Boy is pushed by one person while another appears to steal his phone.

he then apologised for his erratic behaviour, Brown's lawyer attempted to sue and then Soulja Boy went back on his apology.

Soulja Boy then called on his friend Mayweather to train him – and the former pound-for-pound king accepted.

"I got the best ever my big bro @floydmayweather training me damn," he added.

Brown accepted the challenge.

"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."

Mayweather has also agreed to promote the fight, through his Mayweather Promotions and The Money Team brands.


Hip hop star 50 Cent has also got involved – saying he will be placing a $100,000 (£80,619) bet on Soulja Boy winning the bout.

The New York rapper is also the one who got Tyson in.

“Listen Mike, they say Floyd’s going to be training Soulja Boy so I said I’ve gotta get Mike Tyson to train Chris Brown,” he said in a phone call posted to Instagram.

Tyson responded: “Yeah, Soulja Boy’s gonna get f***ed up.”

Soulja Boy has since claimed that the rivalry started in 2009 when he got together with Rihanna after she saw him in concert.

It is set to be staged in Las Vegas in March – the location is not yet decided – and will be screened on PPV.
