Chris Brown will be fighting his rapper rival Soulja Boy in a $1m celebrity boxing match to take place in March this year in Las Vegas.
The two artistes have spent the best part of this week entangled in an online quarrel, and now the rappers have announced a fight.
Soulja Boy said on Instagram “It’s going down! Signed my contract I’m leaving the fight with $1,000,000.”
Brown, after sharing a series of posts mocking Soulja Boy’s career, wrote and confirmed that a boxing match had been set adding that it was a legal one. Chris Brown went ahead to say that there shouldn’t be any more dissing and talking and that he had accepted the challenge.
“It’s been amazing to see how many people tune in to negativity. Now that we have your undivided attention… Boxing match set legally,” his post read.
Bad blood between the two rappers began when Soulja Boy liked and left a “heart eyes” emoji on a picture of Brown’s ex-girlfriend, model Karrueche Tran.
The 28-year-old model eventually commented on the quarrel, calling it a “ridiculous twitter beef”, adding “there is so much more out there in life”.
It is also reported that rapper 50 Cent has backed Soulja Boy, and is claimed to have placed a $100,000 bet on his win.
