Musk vs. Zuck showdown: ‘It’s time to move on’ says Zuckerberg

The following is an excerpt from CNN Business.

Mark Zuckerberg says Elon Musk “isn’t serious” about a cage fight and “it’s time to move on” from their proposed showdown, the details of which were never nailed down. 

“Elon won’t confirm a date, then says he needs surgery, and now asks to do a practice round in my backyard instead,” the Meta chief executive wrote on social platform Threads Sunday.

“If Elon ever gets serious about a real date and official event, he knows how to reach me. Otherwise, time to move on. I’m going to focus on competing with people who take the sport seriously.”

Zuckerberg, 39, had previously proposed August 26 for the fight, but said Musk, 52, hadn’t confirmed. 

Last week, Musk wrote that the possible showdown would be streamed on X, formerly known as Twitter, which he owns. Musk said he was “lifting weights throughout the day, preparing for the fight,” adding “all proceeds will go to charity for veterans.”

Zuckerberg, a practitioner of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, won gold and silver in two featherweight white belt categories at a California martial arts tournament in May.

In June, the two tech billionaires seemingly agreed to face each other in a cage fight.
