Rapper Nick Cannon has taken his issues with rival Eminem to the next level by challenging him to a one-on-one boxing match.
Writing via Twitter, Cannon expressed his interest in fighting Slim Shady.
“I’m on some Harlem Nights type sh!t I’m putting my money on @Eminem to win!! LOL,” Cannon tweeted Monday (September 27).
“One things for d*mn sure @Eminem has way more fans than I do! They go hard! I don’t want it with #Teamshady LOL”

A promotional web page for the could-be event has also been created by Cannon.
The time has come! Boys talk the talk, but men walk the walk. Nick has laid down the challenge to meet Eminem in the ring. Nick and the rest of the crew on Rollin’ think it’s time for the feud to be over once and for all. And to draw Slim Shady out of hiding, Nick has decided to do it all for charity.

Earlier this month, Cannon dropped the diss record, “I’m A Slick Rick,” accusing Em of avoiding a face-to-face confrontation.
“Now once upon a time in a far away life,” Nick raps using Slick Rick’s tone of voice. “There lived a young man who was so outstanding, to make it interesting it’s me, Nick Cannon — Now here’s a little something that needs to be heard/Yo I’ma serve this clown, now/Word, Nick?/Word/I don’t know if I should hit him because he’s feminine Slick, excuse me Eminem why you lying on your d*ck?/Erectile dysfunction, you wanna get ‘em up — I see your mouth moving but you soft, Teddy Ruxpin/I tried to holla at you at the BET show, but you were scared of the trouble/More security than the Pope/And while you was in your bubble, I was rolling dolo, any time your face is in the streets is some signs for promo/Oh no, there’s been a mistake, see my name is Slick Nick, not Shady Flakes/I’ma mop you up with my wop like it’s ’88…” (“I’m A Slick Rick”)
Em’s Shady Records labelmate and D12 group member Bizarre later responded to Cannon.
“I heard it,” Bizarre told radio host Angela Yee. “It was absolutely terrible. Terrible. He was trying to act like he was Slick Rick. He was terrible and [just] a God awful rapper. But him trying to do a Slick Rick accent was just absolutely horrible…You don’t want that one-on-one with Marshall. Nick, you don’t want that one-on-one.” (Shade 45)
