He also declared that all the proceeds from the fight would be donated to charity.
Earlier on Sunday, Musk mentioned on X that he was “lifting weights and preparing for the fight” as he didn’t have time to work out, so he brought the weights to work.
When a user on X asked Musk about the purpose of the fight, he replied in a humorous tone, “This is a civilized form of combat.Males relish combat.
Years of disagreements between the 51-year-old Musk and the 39-year-old Mark Zuckerberg over differing opinions on everything from politics to artificial intelligence have resulted in their rivalry.
However, the rivalry intensified when Meta unveiled Threads, a new program with features resembling those of Twitter.
In a playful banter on Twitter, Musk assured his fans that he is ready for the virtual boxing match with Zuckerberg.
Zuckerberg, known for following the trends of tech moguls and posting videos of martial arts, responded to the message on his Instagram stories with a screenshot and the reply, “Send me the location.”
As a result of the excitement this discussion has produced on social media, many predictions have been made about how the fight will turn out, with Zuckerberg emerging as the undisputed favorite.
Technology journalist Taylor Lorenz tweeted, “Please, let this happen, God.”
Podcaster Bennet Tomlin wrote, “The best Musk-Zuckerberg cage match is the one where two men enter, and no man goes out.”
