Take this news as you will...

Apparently, we might be seeing a strange new entry to the PPV market this March. Hip-hop artists Chris Brown and Soulja Boy appear to have agreed to a March boxing match on PPV. The two have been beefing on social media and now are moving towards an actual boxing match on PPV in March.

In case that alone is not interesting enough for you, in an unexpected twist, the fight is likely to be promoted by Mayweather Promotions. It appears that Floyd Mayweather will be training Soulja Boy for the fight, while Mayweather’s former protege, now rival Adrien Broner will train Brown.

Details are not finalized, but the fight looks to be 3 rounds, and would take place in Vegas. Both Brown and Soulja Boy have confirmed the fight on their respective Instagram accounts.
