It seems Mzansi will finally be treated to the entertainment we've been looking forward to after Cassper Nyovest confirmed that his much-anticipated boxing fight with YouTuber Slik Talk will be going ahead.
The fight has been in the pipeline for close to a month now but was recently called off after Cassper claimed that Slik Talk had backed out, having made some "unrealistic" demands, including wanting the rapper to pay for his security escort for the fight.
It now seems that things are back on track, with Cassper taking to his verified Twitter account on Wednesday to note that the YouTuber had signed the contract for the fight which has been slated for 22 December.
Ensuring that the fight is everything that it's been billed to be, a confident Cassper put his money where his mouth is by doubling the stakes.

Noting that Mzansi stands in line to be treated to a show, the rapper said the match will be for all those whom Slik Talk has ever disrespected or anyone else who's been a victim of cyberbullying.
In a recent video on his YouTube channel, the controversial entertainment commentator noted actress Amanda du-Pont's (whom he called Amanda du-Fraud) and Cassper's previous relationship, all of which comes amid the rape and abuse allegations she made against Jub Jub.
“This dude keeps giving me more and more reason to knock his head off. Such a disgusting human being. O tlo ny*la Slik talk, I swear! Can't wait to see you in the ring you ugly piece of sh*t! You signed the contract, I hope you don't run now!!" he wrote.

Cassper offers YouTuber R100k for boxing match
Previously, Briefly News reported that Cassper had tabled an initial offer of R100 000 for Slik Talk to square up with him in the ring after the local YouTuber trolled him online.
The loose-lipped self-styled critic published a video on his YouTube channel in which he tore into Cassper by berating his presenting skills on the braai show, as well as a series of the rapper's other pursuits, including his liquor brand.
He also aimed digs at the Doc Shebeleza hitmaker for claiming the existence of a conspiracy against him before dissing the rapper's emotional intelligence.
At the back end of his rant, as previously reported by Briefly News, Slik Talk laid into Cassper, calling him "Don Blockiato", for supposedly being quick to block anyone who had anything negative to say about him on Twitter.
