Adding to the already considerable amount of hype the supposed upcoming Chris Brown versus Soulja Boy boxing match has recevied, Brown's trainer and boxing veteran Mike Tyson has taken the heat to the studio and released a video for his Soulja Boy diss track "If You Show Up."

None of Tyson, Brown or their intended target actually make an appearance in the video, directed by Tonio Skits, save for a Soulja Boy impersonator, who reenacts the Instagram Live video where the rapper allegedly was jumped. (There are also scantily clad women hitting the gym and the basketball court, while mouthing the lyrics to the record.)

On the hard-hitting, Damon Elliott-produced beat, Tyson repeats a few simple lines: "If you show up, it's going down/ I'm gonna teach him how to knock your a-- out." 

Soulja Boy, whose trainer is boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, is slated to take his beef with Brown to the ring in March. The rapper gave an update on the bout to TMZ on Friday (Jan. 13) while at Los Angeles International Airport, saying, “I’ve been training every day. I’m focused, man. I just hope to give it my best. It’s gonna be one of the biggest fights of the century, you know what I’m saying? [It’s going to be one of the] biggest fights of the year.”

The rapper continued, "It’s not about the money at all. It’s about me, my respect as a man. I was disrespected as a man. I was challenged to a fight [and] I accepted the challenge. It’s not about the money. I’ve been making millions of dollars since I was 17 years-old. It’s not about the money at all. It’s about my respect. I’mma go into the fight and give it my all, and I’mma knock his ass out.”

Tyson isn't the only one getting busy in the booth. Soulja Boy also released his own diss track, aimed at his opponent Brown and 50 Cent, who has been heavily promoting the fight, called "Hit Em With The Draco." Sample line: "Stand in the box, I jab I jab/ I'mma knock out Chris Brown."
