Celebrity boxing matches have become more popular than ever recently, with more and more artists trying their hand at hand throwing. Now it looks like 2021 XXL First year students Toosii and 10th winner DDG could compete in the ring.
The ball began on the possible match-up on Friday (June 18), when Toosii posted the tweet, “I need a boxing match set up.” DDG noticed the reposted tweet on an Instagram blog and decided to put her hat on in the ring. “Did someone say box?” he wondered.
It looks like Toosii is ready to scold with the Michigan rhymer. “Let’s put it in place,” Toosii replied.
It is not known if Toosii has any previous boxing experience. Or if it’s just his recent musical performance at Shakur Stevenson and Jeremiah Nakathila’s junior lightweight championship boxing match in Las Vegas, Nevada. DDG, on the other hand, recently put in an impressive performance in an amateur boxing match against TikTok star Nate Wyatt on June 12. DDG won by unanimous decision and completely dominated Wyatt in the ring. Toosii may have bitten more than he can chew.
Rap fans have been teased with boxing matches from some of their favorite artists in the past, but they usually end up never happening. Most notably, Soulja Boy and Chris Brown were supposed to fight in a boxing match that ultimately failed in 2017. Soulja Boy was also supposed to fight Jake Paul in 2019, but after excite the game for months, it never came to fruition. It will be interesting to see if this actually decreases.
