Chris Brown Explains Pulling Out of Boxing Match With Soulja Boy, Calls Beef 'Immature'
"I bowed out of this Soulja Boy fight. I'mma tell you why, 'cause it was a legit thing on a positive scale. All the wrong people got in the way. The middlemen people got in the way. The homies, so to speak [...] got in the way because they wanted a piece of the pie. It's immature, first and foremost. Second of all, ain't no n---a ever gon' hold me up. However everything goes, this how we rocking. He gon' see me."
In a series of tweets posted earlier Tuesday (Feb. 21), Soulja Boy explained his side: "Chris Brown manager call my manager last night and said the fight is off and he's not signing contract. Don't ask me about the sh-- no more."
Brown also encouraged his fans to ignore the "other side's" commentary, which could also be in reference to reports that his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran requested a restraining order against him following alleged death threats. "Make sure you don't be listening to all the bullsh--," he added. "Them people on the other side, let them do what they doing. I don't know what the f--- they talking about."
The star-studded match was going to feature Brown going toe-to-toe against Soulja Boy with boxing legends Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield serving as their trainers, respectively.
