Chris Brown and Soulja Boy have agreed to a boxing match to settle their online feud. Most people might think Soulja Boy is the favorite to win since he has secured arguably the greatest boxer of all time to be his trainer. Yes, Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be in Soulja Boy’s corner for the upcoming boxing match. That is not swaying Rihanna, however, as she strongly believes that Chris Brown will win the match with ease.
“Chris hits hard,” she told 18 Karat Reggae. “I don’t think there is any celebrity who can hit as hard as Chris and Soulja Boy’s mouth might have written a check that his ass can’t cash.”
Mayweather’s decision to align himself with Soulja Boy comes after he decided to promote the fight on his Instagram. The poster features both Brown and Soulja on the card and it has the official stamp of the boxer’s promotion company, Mayweather Promotions, as the ones endorsing the event.
Soulja Boy reposted the photo and hyped up the star-studded match on his page. “It’s going down! Signed my contract I’m leaving the fight with $1,000,000 I got the best ever my big bro @floydmayweather training me damn. #TMT #SODMG March in Vegas !! On TV,” Soulja wrote.
To prove that Mayweather was indeed signing on to be his trainer, Soulja posted a picture of him and the boxer on his Instagram. Afterwards, he posted a video alongside him, as he continued to talk trash about his March fight against Chris Brown. “Me and my trainer/big brother @floydmayweather #TMT it’s official!!,” Soulja boy said.
Things escalated once Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend and baby mama Nia Guzman got involved. She posted a picture of their daughter Royalty on her Instagram and tagged Floyd Mayweather and his crew The Money Team. To several Instagram followers, her move signaled her allegiance to Mayweather and Soulja Boy. Soulja reposted the picture on his page, while Guzman deleted it from her account.
In an interview with TMZ, Guzman said the photo was harmless and that Mayweather has been “investing in Royalty’s future.” Brown responded with harsh words toward Soulja Boy and urged his camp to move the fight up after finding out that Royalty has been used as a pawn throughout this fiasco.
“Seriously, we gon’ set up this fight,” Brown said. “It’s gonna be professional. You could do all that, but one thing you gotta stop doing my nigga. I’mma be real with you — stop bringing my daughter into this, my nigga.”
As of now, the fight is slated for March.
