The much-anticipated boxing match between Cassper Nyovest and Slik Talk was delivered zapping hot from the square ring on Wednesday night with prize money of R100 000 on the line.
After a short delay to the start of the fight, the rapper and Youtuber took to the canvas, much to the roar of the crowd in attendance, which included several celebrity faces.
Almost from the jump, Cassper made good on his promise to give his challenger a beating of note, unleashing a flurry of relentless hooks and jabs. Slik Talk looked visibly stunned as he took a few solid blows to the face, at times stumbling around to find his bearings.
This saw several stoppages being enforced and the two "celebrity" fighters sent to their respective corners. The fight had been in the pipelines for the last month, with Cassper propositioning Slik Talk to it after the loose-lipped Youtuber "trolled him on social media."

Took too many punishing blows
The two concluded the first round and went into a second, but much the same way, the rapper-businessman laid into Slik Talk, who did nothing to challenge his counterpart, not even managing as little as one punch. Instead, the burly fella resorted to his old school rugby tactics of trying to wrestle Cass to the ground.
The referee eventually called time on the fight after adjudging that Slik Talk had taken too many devastating punches to the face and head. Regardless, the former insisted on a second round but the curtains were closed on the boxing affair, with Cassper being declared the winner by unanimous decision.
Speaking to the ring announcer after the affair, who asked Slik Talk what he thought happened to him during the toe to toe action, the former replied by saying he had very little time to prepare for the fight. The statement, of course, contradicted his previous one in which he said he could fight at the drop of a hat.
"I don't think the stoppage was right. I had a week to prepare and I did the best that I can. My goal was to survive three rounds, that's it. I could've done three," said Slik Talk, who cut a sorry sight after the fight, and certainly devastated he could not secure the bag.
Slik Talk admits Cassper punches hard
An adamant Slik Talk, who confirmed he would like to fight Cassper in a rematch, was denied his request to get an additional round on the night. The latter sparkled and shined as his sweat dripped onto the mat after an easy night of "fun".
"I respect this guy. He's got balls. Not everyone can get in the ring, you know what I mean? I know so many celebrities that I called out and that ran away.
"Big shoutout to Slik Talk for taking the fight within three weeks, I respect him for that. But I already knew I was gonna hurt him," said the rapper, who recently launched his alcoholic beverage, Billiato.
Naak was invited into the ring, and after some verbal banter between the two, a date for 8 April next year was set and agreed upon, with the Superbowl at the Sun City Resort in Rusternburg set to play host to the event.

Elsewhere, Briefly News previously reported that Cassper seems to be making all the right moves in the eyes of his adoring fans and others as he continues on his upward trajectory of riches.
And as one who never shies away from the spotlight, the enthusiastic figure is often all too happy to share his latest flexes on social media. Briefly News recently reported that the rapper is fresh off gifting himself with a luxury Frank Muller timepiece.
On social media, Cassper alluded to purchasing the expensive item as a reward to himself for "the hard work he poured into 2021". The rapper, who's now concluded his dated with Slik Talk in emphatic fashion, was named the artist of the decade at the recent South African Hip Hop Awards.
Further to his substantial list of achievements this year, he has now launched Billiato, his alcoholic beverage. His boss moves have since come to a head when earlier on Wednesday the record label head took to Twitter to share a video of the lux McLaren GT he's reportedly now copped himself.
