Chris Brown vs. Soulja Boy

It’s happening sooner than you think!

The celebrity boxing match between Soulja Boy and Chris Brown has been pushed forward to Saturday 28th January. 

The highly publicised fight will take place two months earlier than previously scheduled, and will see the Hip-Hop artists go head-to-head in an attempt to settle their ongoing feud. 

The news was revealed by notable professional boxer Adrien Broner who added that he has decided to train Breezy for the fight.

"We pushing for this to happen asap y'all ain't trying to keep y'all waiting,” he said.

"I promise this will be a great show," before adding "@floydmayweather decided to train @souljaboy and I'm going to train @chrisbrownofficial." 


A new poster featuring Brown and Soulja was also revealed by the famous athlete, showing the new date alongside the heavily-tattooed stars standing face-to-face. 

It was announced yesterday that fellow fighting champion and boxing icon Floyd Mayweather was set to train Soulja Boy for the upcoming face-off.

Video footage soon surfaced of Soulja training in the gym during some early preparation for the match, which was initiated due to the ongoing beef over social media between the pair and Chris Brown's ex girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

It wasn't long before a clip of Breezy training for the fight also emerged, showing him practising his boxing skills.

And although the match is weeks away, some famous figures are already placing their bets.

50 Cent recently revealed he was backing Breezy to win, informing his Instagram followers that he was putting £100,000 on the singer.
