Elon Musk announced that his upcoming fight with Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg will be livestreamed on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter. And while it’s still not clear when the fight will occur, Musk says he’s been lifting weights to prepare.
“Zuck v Musk fight will be live-streamed on X. All proceeds will go to charity for veterans,” Musk tweeted early Sunday.
Musk and Zuckerberg challenged each other to a fight in June. At the time, it appeared that they were both joking. At this point, it really does seem like this “cage match,” as it’s previously been dubbed, might happen.
Even before Musk’s desire to fight a fellow businessman, Zuckerberg had been training publicly in jiu-jitsu. Musk is considered to be much older and in worse shape than Zuckerberg. Musk appears to be working on this problem.
“Am lifting weights throughout the day, preparing for the fight. Don’t have time to work out, so I just bring them to work,” Musk tweeted overnight.
Zuckerberg has reportedly been eating McDonald’s to replace all the calories he’s been burning through working out, according to the Sun newspaper. Zuckerberg consumes approximately 4,000 calories each day. Recently, he posted pictures of him training shirtless.
Twitter and Meta have not responded to my emails as of early Sunday. I’ll update this article if I hear back from either company.
