Former Family Trees signee Chad da Don has shared two cents concerning the upcoming Celeb City celebrity boxing match between his former boss Cassper Nyovest and Priddy Ugly. Chad took to Twitter to voice his opinions that the fight is unfair and tilted towards Nyovest’s favour, stating the weight difference between both fighters as the major reason.
Nyovest is significantly heavier than Priddy Ugly at about a difference of 15 to 20 kgs and Cassper picked Priddy as his opponent for safety. The last time Cassper fought somebody in his weight category he lost to NaakMusiq.
Chad was also asked if he would be willing to step in the ring with his former business partner given their feudal relationship in the past, the Pretoria rapper said he was ready to fight Cassper and does not need help from anybody to do so.
Even Pridy Ugly had vocalized his concerns about the weight difference between him and his opponent. The Luanda-born rapper told Sunday World publication that the boxing match might be called off if Cassper doesn’t lose weight.
“We’ll have to cancel the match if he is 95Kg on the day of the match. Cassper is in two or three categories above mine. The last time we went to weigh each other, which was weeks back, he was 32kg heavier than me.” Said Priddy Ugly. “Cassper has to lose some weight and go down to 90kg, but that will still make him 16kg heavier than me and there is limited time,” he said.
The bout tagged #CelebCity2 is slated for October 1 in Johannesburg and asides from the boxing match being the main event, there will be a variety of other spectacles including several celebrities performing to keep the crowd entertained throughout the night.
