Even though the biggest celebrity boxing match of the year — Chris Brown v. Soulja Boy — has been called off, there’s still one person who isn’t willing to let the rivalry fade away.
During a concert in Minneapolis, Soulja Boy called out Brown for backing down from the fight.
“I told that b—- a– n—- let’s get in the boxing ring,” Soulja Boy says in the video obtained by TMZ. “He said ‘OK Soulja Boy Imma sign the contract, Imma fight you,'” continued the rapper in his best Brown impersonation.
He then continued to hurl insults at the “Party” artist.
“Chris Brown backed down out the fight like a little b—-, man,” said the “Crank That” rapper.
The feud all started over a seemingly-innocent Instagram like.
Back in January — just a couple days into the New Year — Soulja Boy claimed that Brown called him up wanting to fight because the rapper liked Karrueche’s (Brown’s ex-girlfriend) photo on Instagram. According to Soulja Boy’s tweets, he wasn’t the least bit scared over the prospect of one-on-one fisticuffs with the R&B singer …
Which is exactly what was about to transpire. A celebrity boxing match was greenlit and endorsed by Floyd Mayweather, Mike Tyson and 50 Cent. It was even set to air on pay-per-view.
Unfortunately — or fortunately, depending on how you look at it — Brown dropped out of the fight in February saying that “all the wrong people got in the way.”
Soulja Boy broke the news via Twitter, writing, “Chris Brown manager call my manager last night sand said the fight is off and he’s not signing contract.”
“I aint gon say he a b— or he shook or nothing,” the rapper continued. “I’m just gon say he don’t wanna fight. simple. I can’t force him to sign the s–,” Soulja Boy also offered.
