Elon Musk announced that a possible physical confrontation with Mark Zuckerberg would be live-streamed on his social media platform X, previously recognized as Twitter. The two wealthy tech moguls playfully accepted the idea of a "cage match" showdown in late June. Interestingly, Mark Zuckerberg possesses actual training in mixed martial arts, and he even shared his accomplishment of participating in his first jiu-jitsu tournament earlier this year as the CEO of Meta, Facebook's parent company.

Musk announced in a Sunday post on the platform  that the epic showdown: the Zuck v Musk battle will be broadcasted live on X,. He said that every penny earned will be directed towards supporting veterans through various charities.

In response to Musk's announcement, Zuckerberg posted on his Threads social media account, asking that wouldn't it be more effective to utilize a dependable platform that can genuinely generate funds for charity.

Prior to this, Musk had shared earlier that he was preparing for the fight by hitting the gym and lifting weights.
The prospect of Musk and Zuckerberg actually stepping into the ring in Las Vegas remains uncertain, given Musk's tendency to tweet about actions prematurely without following through. Nevertheless, their playful banter has captured considerable attention.

The playful exchange began when Musk, the owner of X, responded to a tweet discussing Meta's plans to launch Threads, a new Twitter competitor.
While the idea of an actual cage match remains speculative, their humorous back-and-forth has drawn considerable interest.
Elon Musk's latest initiative involves streaming the fight video live on X as he seeks to transform the platform into a vibrant "digital town square." Nevertheless, Musk's highly publicized Twitter Spaces event in May encountered technical challenges and a nearly thirty-minute delay during Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' announcement of his presidential candidacy.
