A social media war between Chris Brown and Soulja Boy will apparently be settled in the ring with the help of boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather.

Both hip-hop stars have announced they have signed on for a three-round bout that will be televised on pay-per-view and promoted by Mayweather's companies.

Soulja Boy put a post promoting the fight on Instagram on Wednesday and said: "It's going down! Signed my contract."

He said Mayweather is training him for the fight, which he says will take place in March in Las Vegas.

Me and my trainer/big brother @floydmayweather #TMT it's official!!

Brown also said on Instagram that the match was set.

Their feud stems from Soulja Boy's liking of an Instagram picture posted by Brown's ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
