They always seem ready to fight. Give them any excuse and they start talking about battling it out. 

Some South African celebrities have had some long standing beefs, and now it seems they will take those issues into the ring in boxing matches. 

One of those celebrities is Cassper Nyovest. He wants to fight Prince Kaybee, Big Xhosa and anyone else who stands in his way or disses him.

But the one person he won't fight right now is his biggest industry rival, AKA. The two have had beef for years but because AKA recently lost his fiancé after she fell to her death and is still grieving, Cassper won't touch him, he says. 

The two rap stars were meant to face each other in a boxing ring in 2020 but it fizzled out.

This is why a fan asked Cassper if he will be fighting AKA anytime soon.

“Me beating up Aka at his lowest doesn't sit well with me. I'm just not built like that. He isn't well, it doesn't sit right with me to kick someone who isn't fit to fight. It just wouldn't be right,” he tweeted.

He is prepared to go glove to glove with popular DJ Prince Kaybee. The two of them have been bumping heads on Twitter and have agreed to squash their beef in the boxing ring. No dates have been confirmed yet though.
