In Tyson’s opinion, it will take much more than one round for someone to emerge victorious.
“Come to the fight,” Tyson said when asked how many rounds it would take for Chris Brown to knock out Soulja Boy. “It’s going to be a tough one. I don’t think it’ll be a first round knock out. I think there will be a lot of scrapping. [Dirty tricks?] It depends, it depends on how Soulja Boy’s fighting.” (TMZ)
This week, hip-hop manager Wack 100 reminded the world he’s in full control of the bout.
A day prior, Wack 100 said entertainers 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Jr. had no control in the pay-per-view fight going down.
“We’re going to take the fight to Dubai. Mike Tyson’s definitely involved. I’ve had conversations through other people with Floyd. 50 Cent’s not leading for the fight. Floyd’s not leading for the fight. But if politics are right, we can talk business. At the end of the day, Floyd and 50 ain’t never going to control anything that’s a West Coast situation with no disrespect. Like, it would be hard for me to control something that’s New York-based and 50’s involved. So at the end of the day, the Dubai situation, that’s something I put together. I already have paperwork on one of the fighters already. Both them dudes, it’s Piru business right now. Unfortunately, Wack 100’s in business and in the position to do the same things they can do. Floyd’s a boxer. 50’s a rapper. But pay-per-view, location, the funding, the finance, the marketing, the promotion, all of that is between me managing Game and Ray J. Television is there. Pay-per-view is there. Everything is there. Mike Tyson’s directly involved. Everybody else is just talking and having fun with the situation. Hopefully they can start respecting the situation because we really ain’t playing with this over here. When I say we, I’m speaking for the West Coast as a whole. Not only as my Piru comrades, my Crip comrades and everybody else out here that’s involved – Floyd, no disrespect, is a guy from Michigan that lives in Vegas.” (TMZ Sports)
Earlier in the week, 50 Cent announced singer Kelly Price would perform the national anthem at the fight.
