Soulja Boy Says He’s Renting Venue, Selling Tickets for Fight Against Chris Brown
Soulja Boy is taking control of the promotion for his much hyped fight against Chris Brown. The Atlanta rapper claims he's running the show since the other parties involved - presumably Wack 100 and Floyd Mayweather - were not getting the job done in a timely fashion.
“YALL KNOW WHAT IM THROWING THE FIGHT,” Soulja Boy wrote. “THESE NIGGAZ TAKING TOO LONG FUCK THIS SHIT YOU NEED TICKETS HIT ME IM RUNNING THE SHOW. IM RENTING THE VENUE. IM SETTING THE DATE. IM SELLING THE TICKETS. THIS WILL BE A SOULJA BOY PROMOTION. HIT ME FOR TICKETS THEY ON SALE NOW.”
The "Crank Dat" artist said fans could reach out to him directly for tickets. Soulja Boy also claimed he would be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in the near future to discuss the bout.
“THE FIGHT WILL GO DOWN IN MARCH HIT ME FOR TICKETS. BIG SOULJA PROMOTIONS,” he continued. “I will give an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live about the upcoming Fight, And my new Tour, and TV Show update.”
“I think I’m gon’ win. I’m not saying it’s gon’ be an easy win,” he recently told TMZ. “After the fight, we can shake hands and be friends.”
That outcome may seem unlikely right now, but you have to consider all the odd developments in this feud. A reconciliation following a boxing match does not sound too crazy.
