LA rapper Blueface is set to face former Laker Nick Young in a boxing match next month.
The pair will face off in the ring on July 30th at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
They will be featured on Austin McBroom’s undercard and AnEsonGib’s fight in the Social Gloves PPV.
Ex-NFL running back Le’Veon Bell has been confirmed for the card, but his opponent is yet to be determined.
TMZ Sports confirmed the news of Blueface’s showdown with an ex-NBA champion.
The 25-year-old rapper hit TikToker Kane Trujillo last summer and was then attacked by a fan.
Young, 37, played four seasons with the LA Lakers of the NBA during his career.
He won the NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors in 2018 and retired later that year.
Blueface, on the other hand, is best known for his 2018 hit with Cardi B and YG called “Thotiana” — which peaked at number eight on the US charts.
McBroom vs AnEsonGib was confirmed in a return of the Social Gloves banner earlier this week.
Last year’s event did not go according to plan as fighters claimed they were not paid.
