The two tech billionaires seemingly agreed to a “cage match” face-off in late June.
Zuckerberg is actually trained in mixed martial arts, and the Facebook founder posted about completing his first jiu jitsu tournament earlier this year.
Musk wrote in a post: “Zuck v Musk fight will be live-streamed on X. All proceeds will go to charity for veterans.”

Musk said earlier on Sunday that he was training for the fight by lifting weights.
“Don’t have time to work out, so I just bring them to work,” Musk wrote.
Musk, the owner of X, first issued the challenge to Zuckerberg following the news that Meta was preparing to release Twitter rival, Threads.
Responding to a user’s joke about Zuckerberg’s jiu jitsu training, he wrote: “I’m up for a cage match if he is lol.”
Zuckerberg responded with a post on his Instagram account, asking Musk to “send me location” in a story update.

But even at their highest, the number of listeners listed topped out at around 420,000, far from the millions of viewers that televised presidential announcements attract.
