He mentioned that Musk hadn’t confirmed a date for the fight and had made requests like doing a practice round in Zuckerberg’s backyard.
Zuckerberg also mentioned that if Musk ever gets serious about setting a date and making the event official, he can reach out to him. However, for now, Zuckerberg intends to cognizance on competing with folks who take the game seriously.
Background of the Proposed Fight
In June, the 2 tech billionaires, Zuckerberg and Musk, seemed to agree to stand every different in a cage fight. The stakes had been raised whilst Meta released Threads, a social platform visible as a competitor to Twitter, which Musk owns. The proposed fight garnered attention and speculation about its potential impact.
Elon Musk had noted that the viable combat might be streamed on X (previously Twitter), which he owns, and that he was preparing for the fight by lifting weights throughout the day. He also stated that all proceeds from the event would go to charity for veterans.
While the initial proposal created buzz, the lack of confirmation on a date and the different perspectives on the seriousness of the fight have led to its apparent dissolution.
