Musk stated that Zuckerberg declined the duel at the Colosseum
Elon Musk, the businessman, recently mentioned that Meta's founder, Mark Zuckerberg, declined a fight at the Colosseum. Musk humorously shared this on his X (Twitter) account.
Musk jokingly wrote, "I made a quip on Twitter about fighting Zuckerberg. Mark responded with, 'Send me the location.' Italy kindly offered the Colosseum. However, Mark declined. I even suggested his own house as a safe place, but unfortunately, he was traveling at that time. Is there any location where he'd be willing to spar?"
In early August, Zuckerberg revealed that he no longer expects the duel to happen since Musk is "not serious" about it. Zuckerberg wrote, "Elon never confirmed the date of the duel, then claimed he needed surgery, and now he's asking for a training session in my backyard."
The talk of a potential fight between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg started in late June when the businessmen engaged in a public dispute over the launch of the Threads app, a Twitter alternative.
For nearly two months, Musk and Zuckerberg remained in the public eye, discussing jiu-jitsu training with celebrities, potential dates, and various meeting locations, including the Colosseum. They even considered turning the event into a charitable endeavor.
