Soulja Boy

Mike Tyson will train Chris Brown in his fight against rapper Soulja Boy

The former heavyweight champion was asked to help out by 50 Cent after some major beef between the pair over the last few weeks.

"I'm gonna teach him how to bite somebody's ear. Yeah, that's right," he said in a video on Instagram.

"I'm gonna teach him every dirty trick in the book to knock you out. Because I'm not going to teach him how to run."

Soulja Boy is going to be trained by another former boxing champ, Floyd Mayweather, who announced the bout on Instagram.

Chris Brown and Soulja Boy have signed up to go toe-to-toe in a celebrity boxing match.

Writing on Instagram, Soulja Boy said: "It's going down! Signed my contract I'm leaving the fight with $1,000,000."

According to the rapper the bout will take place in March in Las Vegas and in his corner will be one of the sports all-time greats.

"I got the best ever my big bro @floydmayweather training me damn," he added.

Responding to the announcement Chris Brown told his 34 million Instagram followers it was time to stop talking.

"Now that we have your undivided attention, boxing match set," the singer wrote.

Soulja Boy is arrested for illegally possessing a gun

Police officers raided his home in Los Angeles and took him into custody after discovering the firearm.

Although America has lenient gun laws, Soulja Boy is banned from owning one as part of his probation following an earlier arrest.

The rapper was detained in 2014 for carrying a loaded gun after police pulled over the driver of his car on suspicion of ignoring a stop sign.

The 26-year-old rapper, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, was behind one of the biggest dance crazes of the last 10 years with his debut single Crank That (Soulja Boy) in 2007.
