Elon Musk and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s cage fight will be broadcast live on Musk’s Twitter, currently rebranded as X, according to a tweet from Musk posted this morning. Musk says the proceeds will go to charities for veterans.
Linda Yaccarino, CEO of Twitter reposted Musk’s tweet with a comment that you are cleaning up your calendar. On Zuckerberg’s side, though, things seem quiet for now, as he hasn’t commented on Threads or Instagram as of yet this morning.
The cage fight dates back to June, when the two billionaires agreed to the fight through a series of social media posts on their respective platforms (Musk on Twitter, Zuckerberg on Instagram). However, talk of the fight has been relatively quiet since late June, and as of late July, a Reuters The story quoted Zuck as saying he wasn’t sure if the fight would “come together”.
Whether this really means the fight will happen is up in the air, especially given Zuckerberg’s comment last month. If it does, Zuckerberg, who has been seen training hard and even winning MMA fights, remains favorite to win in sports betting.
We’ve reached out to Meta and Twitter about Musk’s tweet, and will update if we hear more.
