Soulja says the match will take place in L.A. or Vegas in March.
While it seemed like it was all talk at first, the Soulja Boy-Chris Brown boxing match is actually happening; at least according to Soulja. TMZ caught up with SB on his way out of the airport, where they asked him a few questions regarding the details of the fight, in which it's been reported that Soulja will be trained by Floyd Mayweather, and Brown will be trained by Mike Tyson.
When asked about reports that the match would be taking place in Dubai, Soulja set things straight. " I don't know where that came from," he said. "We're supposed to fight in Vegas or L.A." According to Soulja, it's all happening in March; "I've got two months to train."
According to Soulja, he's had to cut back on smoking weed and worked a lot on his breathing as part of his training, and that the match is "not about the money at all," but rather, proving himself" as a man." Overall, he's confident that he'll be victorious. "I'm not saying it's going to be an easy win, but I think that I'm gonna win for sure," he said.
Perhaps most surprisingly, when it's all said and done, Soulja's hoping he and Brown can mend their relationship after they settle things in the ring. "After the fight we can shake hands and be friends," he said when asked for his "message" to Chris.
