Chris Brown and Soulja Boy Look to Fight in Dubai
Chris Brown and Soulja Boy are looking to take their fight to Dubai.
The feuding artists’ plans for a Las Vegas bout were thwarted for several reasons, according to TMZ. One of those reasons was a mandatory drug test for amateur fighters that both musicians say they’d fail.
Never to worry, stateside fans. While they hope to organize the fight in Dubai, the report says pay-per-view options will be available.
Previously, both artists claimed that this fight would be done for charity. Although it’s currently unclear how much, if any, of the proceeds will be given to a charitable cause, both Chris and Soulja are poised to make money from the bout. In fact, sources say the payday is one of the fight’s biggest draws for each artist.
In the past, Soulja has said that the match would be taking place in March, but no date has been announced as of yet.
Others are also getting involved. Floyd Mayweather is training Young Draco, while Chris Brown’s trainer Mike Tyson has already released a snippet of a Breezy-assisted diss track.
50 Cent has placed his bet on Brown to win, taunting Mayweather in the process. The fight is spilling out into other beefs, as well. Earlier today, Kodak Black referenced the Soulja/Chris bout when he challenged Lil Wayne to a fight on social media.
