In a post on his fledgling social networking platform Threads, Mr Zuckerberg, chief executive of Meta (Facebook’s parent company), wrote: “I think we can all agree that Elon is not serious and needs to stop arguing.” The time has come. If Elon were ever to be serious about the actual date and official schedule, he would know how to contact me. I will focus on competing against people who value the game. this game”.
Less than two months ago, Mr Musk said he was “ready for a cage fight”.
The statement by the Tesla boss came days before Instagram, the social network owned by Meta, introduced Threads as a rival to Mr Musk’s Twitter (now renamed X).

The two executives then continued to fan the flames of the “cage war” when Mr Zuckerberg posted shirtless photos of a practice session, and Mr Musk wrote on Twitter that the match could take place in Italy.
However, Mr Musk said the date of the match could change from time to time as he would need to undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of his neck and back and require “minor surgery” on his shoulder and ribs – which would take a few days . New month of recovery.
According to the Tesla boss, he wants the matches to be managed by organizations run by him and Mr Zuckerberg, while the Facebook boss wants professional organizations like the UFC – a martial arts promoter headquartered in Las Vegas – to collaborate.
