Battle of the Billionaires: Mark Zuckerberg Taunts Elon Musk Ahead of Cage Match

Must read

NEW YORK, USA – Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, has taken a playful jab at Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s recent announcement about the proposed cage match between the two tech billionaires.

In a post on Threads, Meta’s answer to social media platform X, Zuckerberg questioned Musk’s decision to live stream the event on X.

“Shouldn’t we use a more reliable platform that can raise money for charity?” he quipped on Sunday, August 6, 2023.

Zuckerberg’s riposte followed Musk’s declaration that the fight, aiming to raise funds for veterans’ charities, would be aired live on his platform.

The proposition of the charity bout has been a recurrent topic of conversation between the pair since Musk initially suggested the idea in June, responding to a post about Threads.

Zuckerberg responded with a concise “Send Me Location” in an Instagram story, demonstrating his willingness.

The proposed tech titan face-off has generated considerable attention and amused banter on social media, inspiring a flurry of memes and “choose your fighter” posts.

Musk added fuel to the fire on Sunday, August 6, 2023, with a post on X, stating, “Am lifting weights throughout the day, preparing for the fight. Don’t have time to work out, so I bring them to work.”

A seemingly fitting reply to Musk’s boast came in the form of a photograph captured last month showing Zuckerberg training with Nigerian-New Zealand mixed martial artist, Israel Adesanya.

Known for his impressive 24-2 record in his Ultimate Fighting Championship career, Adesanya’s involvement hints at Zuckerberg’s serious preparation for the potential showdown.

While the anticipation builds, the exact date of the cage match is still uncertain.

Musk disclosed on Sunday, August 6, 2023, that an upcoming surgery might delay the fight, promising an update after undergoing an MRI of his neck and upper back.

As the tech world waits with bated breath, the potential for a Zuckerberg vs. Musk showdown continues to stir excitement and speculation.
