Elon Musk, the self-made billionaire, has hinted at the possibility of a cage match with Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook.
Musk said the fight between the two billionaires will be televised live on the social media network formerly known as Twitter, with earnings going to U.S. war veterans.
Musk paid ê44 billion for Twitter, which he has now rebranded as “X.”
Given that Musk made his remarks in the wee hours of the West Coast morning, Zuckerberg had time to consider them before responding.
Zuckerberg, at age 39, is visibly fitter than Musk, at age 52, thanks to his regular training with martial arts experts.
Musk said on Sunday night that he doesn’t have time to exercise, so he now carries weights to work and exercises during the day.
After Musk attacked Meta’s intentions to release Threads in June, the two tech giants and rivals agreed to settle their disagreements in a fight.
In June, after being challenged to a battle by Musk, Zuckerberg accepted.
However, once both fighters went radio silent, it seemed unlikely that they would ever actually fight each other.
However, in early July, it was claimed by the New York Times that genuine fight preparations were being conducted.
