Twitter/X boss Elon Musk has shared new details on the upcoming fight between himself and Facebook/Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
According to Musk, the fight will not be held as a UFC cage match, as previously thought.
Instead, it will be managed by Musk and Zuckerberg’s foundations.
The event will be live-streamed on all X and Meta apps.
The proceeds will go to veterans.
He also shared that the fight will be held in an “epic location” in Italy.
Musk said the Prime Minister of Italy as well as the Minister of Culture have agreed to allow them to use the location that will highlight ancient Rome.
“The fight will be managed by my and Zuck’s foundations (not UFC),” Musk tweeted Friday.
“Livestream will be on this platform and Meta.
“Everything in camera frame will be ancient Rome, so nothing modern at all.
“I spoke to the PM of Italy and Minister of Culture.
“They have agreed on an epic location.”

Musk hinted that the location could possibly be the biggest amphitheater in the world, the ancient Colosseum located in Rome, Italy.
He shared images on X of swords clashing and one-word “Gladiator.”
The post has left many guessing at what type of fight will the pair take on.
In his last post about the fight, Musk shared:
“Everything done will pay respect to the past and present of Italy.”
“And all proceeds go to veterans.”
