Musk’s Challenge: Cage Fight That Never Happened

This jesting conversation between Musk and Zuckerberg follows a previous challenge – a cage fight. The idea of a cage fight between these two tech titans generated significant buzz on the internet earlier this year. However, the bout never materialized, leading to fans’ disappointment. Zuckerberg accused Musk of not taking the challenge seriously, ultimately resulting in the fight’s cancellation.

In a subsequent interview, Elon Musk addressed these allegations, saying, “He accused me of not being serious, and I said, ‘Listen, at the end of the day, I’ll fight you any place, anywhere, under any rules.'” Italy even expressed its readiness to host the showdown at the Coliseum, as reported by the First Post. Musk expressed a preference for maintaining the Coliseum’s historical significance and avoiding excessive branding, which led to Zuckerberg’s withdrawal from the bout.
