Meta CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has said that Elon Musk “isn’t serious” about a planned cage match, and he has decided to move on.

Mr Musk tweeted that he was “up for a cage fight” in June, and the two billionaire tech executives appeared to have agreed to a fight.

A screenshot of Mr Musk’s tweet with the message “send me location” was taken by Mr Zuckerberg, who heads Facebook and Instagram.

“I think we can all agree Elon isn’t serious and it’s time to move on. I offered a real date. Dana White (UFC boss) offered to make this a legit competition for charity. Elon won’t confirm a date, then says he needs surgery, and now asks to do a practice round in my backyard instead,” Mark Zuckerberg said on Sunday on the social media platform Threads.

He added, “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.”

The owner of the social media site X, formerly known as Twitter, Mr Musk, seemed to imply that the fight will take place in an “epic location” in Italy.

He claimed to have spoken to Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni as he provided streaming possibilities and described the proposed event’s historical backdrop.

As a result of Mr Zuckerberg’s Meta’s July release of Threads, a text-based discussion tool, tensions between the two tech billionaires’ companies have been particularly high.

Mr. Zuckerberg has experience in mixed martial arts, and earlier this year he posted on Facebook that he had won his first jiu-jitsu competition.
