Mike Tyson training rapper for fight against Floyd Mayweather

Mike Tyson added another layer of intrigue to the Chris Brown – Soulja Boy beef by confirming that he will train Chris Brown for the fight. The feud between two rappers teetering on the edge of relevancy has sucked two boxing legends – Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather – into its orbit, with rapper 50 Cent serving as the de facto master of ceremonies as the social media beef sublimates into a celebrity boxing match.

Soulja Boy, what the fuck you talkin about ‘the only thing I’ma teach him is to bite somebody’s ear?’

Yeah, thats right, I’ma teach him every dirty trick in the book to knock you out.

Floyd Mayweather in Soulja Boy’s corner.

Some of you may remember Soulja Boy as the 17-year-old savant producer behind the hit song Crank That.

Well, things have gotten a little…darker. Jaded by success, and propelled (surely) by copious amounts of drugs, Soulja Boy has suffered a series of escalating self-induced micro-meltdowns, culminating in this Chris Brown saga; his pièce de résistance.

So bizarre is Soulja’s internet behavior that he is eclipsed only by Martin Shkreli, king of trolls.

Floyd Mayweather notwithstanding, the deck is stacked (#SODMG) against Soulja Boy. First of all, he looks like he weighs about 120 pounds soaking wet. He’s got little twig arms.

Second, he’s fighting a guy who’s undefeated in his professional career in Chris Brown. The knock on Brown was never “he doesn’t hit hard enough.”

And from afar, Brown seems pretty athletically inclined. Here’s a video of him dunking. Find me a video of Soulja Boy dunking and I’ll eat this laptop.

If they do end up fighting, Chris Brown is for sure going to beat Soulja Boy’s ass. But that’s never been in question. The real question is what the happened to boxing where the best thing it has going for it is a made up beef between Chris Brown and fucking Soulja Boy?
