Kelly Price Will Sing National Anthem at Soulja Boy and Chris Brown Fight
"Looking forward to singing the national anthem on fight night with @souljaboy and @chrisbrownofficial," Price wrote on Instagram today (Jan. 10). "Thank you @50cent for trusting me with this! ☺."
50 has been pulling all the strings when it comes to this bout, turning it from a joke into a reality. The G-Unit leader even got former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson involved in the feud between Soulja Boy and Brown.
"See Floyd’s supposed to be training [Soulja Boy], but I kinda feel like Floyd wants to train him just so he can beat me. How you gonna just train this nigga all of sudden?" 50 said last week. "You is the promoter. You not supposed to be training the fighter for him to fight the other fighter now, champ. But since you got Floyd Mayweather, I just got off the phone with ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson. So, ‘Iron Mike’ is gonna train Chris Brown. Now we gon’ see cause this is gonna be a show. When I put on a show, I put on a show, baby. You got to watch me."
“So it’s confirmed. I just got off the phone with Frenchy and Chris Brown. I’m training Chris, he chose me as his trainer to take on Soulja Boy,” Tyson said. “And Soulja Boy, what the fuck you talkin’ bout, ‘Only thing I’mma teach him is how to bite somebody’s ear off.’ Yeah that’s right, I’mma teach him every dirty trick in the book to knock you out, ‘cuz I’m not gonna teach him how to run.”
No date has been announced for the fight, but both sides are trying to arrange for it to happen in Dubai. Brown and Soulja Boy cannot face off in the U.S. due to certain restrictions for amateur competitors.
