An exact date and venue have not yet been set but according to both celebrities, a celebrity boxing match between rappers Soulja Boy and Chris Brown is set for March in Las Vegas.
“It’s going down in March they both getting prepared for the epic fight of the beginning of the year@chrisbrownofficial VS @souljaboy2017 Tickets will be available shortly….

Writing on Instagram, Soulja Boy said: “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,” he added.
Responding to the announcement Chris Brown told his 34 million Instagram followers it was time to stop talking.
“Now that we have your undivided attention, boxing match set,” the singer wrote.
He added: “Legally. Man to Man. No more dissing and no more talking. We in the ring with it. Challenge accepted.”
According to a report from BBC, the announcement comes following days of fiery exchanges between the pair via social media.
It apparently started after Soulja Boy, liked and left a comment below a picture on the profile of Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend.
The pair posted several videos and pictures mocking and threatening each other as the argument became more heated.
It wasn’t long before a physical challenge was issued and that seems to have been accepted by both parties.
The three round fight is being promoted by boxing great Floyd Mayweather who apparently is training Soulja Boy.
While 50 Cent has backed Soulja Boy for the win and says he’ll be placing a $100,000 bet on the outcome.
