Elon Musk pledges to livestream cage fight with Mark Zuckerberg on Twitter

Elon Musk has promised fans that his cage fight against social media rival Mark Zuckerberg will be live-streamed.

The billionaires are set to step into the ring for a cage match in an event that started as a joke when rumours of Zuckerberg's rival Twitter app 'Threads' first surfaced.

But now, Musk appeared to confirm it will go ahead and fans and followers of the pair can watch wherever they are across the globe.

In a post uploaded to X, formerly Twitter, earlier today (Sunday, 6 August), Musk wrote: "Zuck v Musk fight will be live-streamed on X.

"All proceeds will go to charity for veterans."

He added: "The first episode of X-Videos! [Fire emojis]."

The businessman also admitted that he has been training for the big event.

He said: "Am lifting weights throughout the day, preparing for the fight.

"Don’t have time to work out, so I just bring them to work."

The idea of a fight initially came about when a Twitter user warned Musk they'd heard rival and Facebook owner Zuckerberg 'does the ju jitsu now' and so he 'better be careful'.

Musk responded seemingly in a jokey fashion, as he said: "I'm up for a cage match if he is lol."

The Meta boss took to Instagram to respond to Musk, with the comment: "Send Me Location."

In response to an X user's questioning as to 'the point of the fight,' Musk replied: "It's a civilised form of war. Men love war."

Musk entered the social media world nine months ago when he took over Twitter and has been divisive among users following wholesale changes to the structure of the site.

The world’s second-richest man bought the site for £34billion and he now has ambitions to model it into a site more reminiscent of China's WeChat.

He relaunched the popular social media site on July 24 as he pushes to revamp it into an "everything" app.
