Elon Musk says he may need to get surgery before a proposed “cage match” with Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg.
The tech billionaires agreed to an in-person battle back in June, but whether we will get to see both men hit the battlefield is still unknown as Musk and Zuckerberg continue to fuel the idea of them fighting with online jabs. Musk informed his followers via his site X, where he pitched the idea of a potential live-streamed fight.
Musk added that the fight’s proceeds would go to a charity for veterans. On his Threads social media account, Zuckerberg responded: “Shouldn’t we use a more reliable platform that can actually raise money for charity?”
Zuckerberg says he's not “holding his breath” for a fight, but he's preparing just in case saying:
“I’m ready today. I suggested Aug 26 when he first challenged, but he hasn’t confirmed,”
Musk also said he was training for the fight by lifting weights. He later addressed the timing of the fight — noting the date “is still in flux” due to a scheduled MRI and the potential of surgery.
“I’m getting an MRI of my neck & upper back tomorrow,” Musk wrote Sunday night. "May require surgery before the fight can happen. Will know this week.”
