Soulja Boy says Evander Holyfield is prepping him to fight Chris Brown

Hello from Houston, where I'm down here as part of the AJC's Super Bowl coverage team. Stay tuned for fun posts from the scene.

Since I'm sitting here in the back of a taxi with 5 minutes of free time on my hand, I figured I'd check in to see what's cooking back at the ranch. And here's what's on the menu: Soulja Boy, who grew up in Atlanta, says Atlanta's Evander Holyfield is training him to box Chris Brown.

The source here is Soulja's manager, who apparently reached out to TMZ with the tantalizing tidbit, which the rapper then posted via Twitter. Notes the piece: "no date or venue's been nailed down."
