Mayweather & Tyson Training Celebs for PPV Fight
A boxing matchup between rapper Soulja Boy and pop star Chris Brown may sound too absurd to be taken seriously, but the fight is as official as it gets: The two have reportedly signed a contract to fight in a three-round fight in March, and have appointed boxing legends Floyd Mayweather and Mike Tyson as trainers, respectively.
Mayweather announced the fight on Instagram:
The bout will reportedly be for charity and is seen as a "peaceful" means to solve a grudge between Soulja Boy and Brown.
Soulja Boy then posted a video to his own Instagram, revealing that he would be trained by none other than Floyd Mayweather ahead of the March fight.
Not to be outdone, Chris Brown has enlisted the services of another boxing great to train him ahead of the fight.
"Iron" Mike Tyson, former heavyweight champion of the world, announced on his own Instagram page that he will be training Brown.
"I’m gonna teach him every dirty trick in the book to knock you out," Tyson said in the video.
A specific date for this fight has not been announced yet, but the seriousness of all involved parties suggests that the celebrity boxing match will actually go forward.
