Sean Kingston is trying to develop his portfolio beyond the music world as he is reportedly starting his own professional boxing league for rappers.
Teaming up with a famed hip-hop agent, Triple The Mogul, Kingston wants to create the Professional Rapper Boxing League (PRBL). They already have several rappers on board who are willing to fight once the league is established.
Rumors say that even Soulja Boy is seeing to join the league to show off his fighting skills.
The PRBL was started after Sean began hosting boxing events at his Hollywood Hills mansion.
The attention of some wealthy investors, such as various combat sports companies like Top Rank and Zuffa LLC has caught on the wind from the fights. Zuffa LLC is the company that created the UFC with Dana White and are talking about backing the boxing league. Sean and Triple have also invested their own funds to get this thing going.
Sean Kingston and Triple The Mogul have personally invested $10 million each and have raised nearly $50 million for PRBL in total so far. They’re reportedly hoping to get things boxing matches up and running before the NBA season begins in July. The fights, however, will continue to be held at Sean’s home but they reportedly hope to expand the fights to boxing gyms and arenas.
As far as who’s on board, YK Osiris, Lil TJay and Trippie Redd have all verbally agreed to fight and Soulja Boy is reportedly considering the challenge.
YK Osiris has had a lot of moxy on social media, calling out Tory Lanez and Drake to fight him.
The fights will continue to be on Instagram Live for now.
