The trash-TV event of the year is apparently off. The celebrity boxing match between man children Soulja Boy and Chris Brown is reportedly off after Brown’s manager canceled the fight.


As BBC notes, the fight, which started as a social media feud, was supposed to happen in Las Vegas over three rounds. Former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson was supposed to be training Brown, while Soulja Boy was being helped out by boxing star Floyd Mayweather. The entire event was organized by 50 Cent.


Soulja Boy went on a little Twitter rant about the situation, but there’s no word from Breezy yet as far as the eye can see. Maybe he’s learning to disengage for 2017.

Ah well, on to the next one.
