The excitement for the Soulja Boy/Chris Brown boxing match is seemingly dying down a bit, so it’s time for some ‘news’ from the S-Beezy side of things.
TMZ is reporting Soulja Boy (who was previously being trained for the fight by Floyd Mayweather), has split ways with the undefeated boxer in favor of new handling.
Soulja Boy’s stepping up to the heavyweight ranks for his fight with Chris Brown — he’s got Evander Holyfield training him now, instead of Floyd Mayweather.
Soulja’s promoter, Wack 100, tells us he reached out to the ex-champ and hooked them up on the phone. He says Soulja pitched himself to Evander … convincing him he’s serious about the boxing match with Chris.
We’re told Soulja did a lot of talking about “knocking out” Chris, but Evander gave him a quick tip: train harder, talk less. He also assured the skinny singer he can get him into true knockout form. Of course, the nemesis of Evander’s ears — Mike Tyson — is training Chris, but we’re told his name didn’t come up during the initial convo.
There’s been no official word from Mayweather about the change of trainers, but word is Soulja just felt Floyd was “too busy with other interests” to focus on getting him ready.
If Chris Brown & Soulja Boy want to strike while the iron is hottest, they’d be smart to make this fight sooner than later. With the legal troubles hovering over the rapper they call ‘Draco’, and Brown’s friends doing all they can to land him back in hot water; the fight itself should probably be given some concrete details for the fans to look forward to…otherwise interest may pass & these two will be back to setting up fights on Facebook Live for free.
