Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg says he’s “ready today” to fight Elon Musk, who owns Twitter (currently rebranding as X), and that although he had suggested August 26th as the date for their cage match, Musk hasn’t confirmed and he’s not holding his breath. Zuckerberg included a screenshot of Twitter’s owner posting about lifting weights to prepare.
In response to Musk’s announcement that the fight would be “live-streamed on X” with proceeds going to a charity for veterans, Zuckerberg suggested they “use a more reliable platform that can actually raise money for charity.” The Meta CEO also said he loves the sport and “will continue competing with people who train no matter what happens here.”
Meta itself has declined to comment beyond Zuckerberg’s posts. This of course doesn’t mean the fight is confirmed for August 26th, which is just shy of three weeks away at this point.
