Mike Tyson Confirms He’s Training Chris Brown for Soulja Boy Fight
Yesterday (Jan. 8), Mike Tyson went on Instagram and confirmed he’ll be training Chris Brown for his highly anticipated boxing match versus Soulja Boy, which could go down at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand in March.
The 50-year-old former heavyweight champ posted a brief clip (see above), in which he takes aim at Soulja Boy.
“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 says. “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.”
For good measure, Iron Mike added the caption, “It’s official. I’m going to train @chrisbrownofficial. Gonna teach him every dirty trick in the book to knockout @souljaboy. #showup #desertbeatdown #norunning #noexcuses @fredfrenchy.”
Meanwhile, it appears Soulja Boy has reached out for training help from Floyd Mayweather. But SB isn’t stopping there. He recently posted an IG video asking for help from other personal trainers and fitness companies, as well.
“I got Floyd Mayweather training me for the big fight,” Soulja says in the video. “Now I’m still looking for all the personal trainers, all the muscle fitness companies, everybody hit me up in my DMs, I’m tryna get some weight up. Y’all let me know what I can do.”
