Chris Brown and Soulja Boy were going to battle it out in the ring in what was supposed to be the most epic fight of the year, but now it’s not happening! And we thought things were dramatic before. So which rapper chickened out? Here’s the update!
“Chris Brown[‘s] manager call my manager last night sand [sic] said the fight is off and he’s not signing contract. Don’t ask me about the s–t no more,” Soulja Boy, 26, tweeted on Feb. 20. Check it out:

““I aint gon say he a b*tch or he shook or nothing. I’m just gon say he don’t wanna fight. simple. I can’t force him to sign the sh*t,” Soulja reportedly added in a since-deleted tweet. He probably deleted it so he could call Chris a b*tch in a later tweet:
Nah he acting like a Bitch. Won't sign the boxing contract https://t.co/CCwxntMJ6H

Soulja also retweeted fan comments like “Breezy chickened,” and “CB ain’t want the pressure”, as well as articles about the canceled fight. Finally, he had a few suggestions for Chris. “If you want something you have to work for it. If you don’t get it, work harder,” Soulja wrote. “Don’t talk, just act. Don’t say, just show. Don’t promise, just prove,” he also said.
As we previously knew, Chris and Soulja were going to participate in a three-round fight that was set to be broadcast on pay-per-view. Soulja was apparently being trained by Floyd Mayweather, while Chris was reportedly working with Mike Tyson. A rep for Soulja Boy told Page Six that he is disappointed that Brown “punked” out, and that Soulja is “currently focused on his music and business ventures” anyway. Guess the big fight will only happen in our dreams!
