Elon Musk revealed new information about his on-again, off-again fight with Mark Zuckerberg.

Musk's challenge of a "cage match" found unexpected traction, with the event now slated to take place at an undisclosed "epic location" in Italy, a decision reached in collaboration with the Italian government, according to Musk.

Twitter’s CEO said that after Italy “graciously offered a Colosseum” as a venue for the match, “Zuck declined.”

Musk added that he then suggested that the battle take place at Zuckerberg's own home, invoking the concept of a "safe space."

After Zuckerberg said he was traveling, Musk rhetorically asked, “Is there anywhere he will fight?”

What initially seemed like a playful exchange has morphed into a potentially physical event, set to be broadcasted on both Twitter's new platform, now known as X, and Zuckerberg's Meta platforms.

The fight's charitable angle cannot be overlooked, as all proceeds are earmarked for veterans' charities.

A twist emerged as Musk disclosed a shoulder issue requiring surgery and recovery, casting uncertainty on the event's timing.
