Former Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young and rapper Blueface are set to face off in a celebrity boxing match on Saturday July 30. According to TMZ Sports, Young and Blueface will be part of the Social Gloves event at the newly named Crypto.com Arena in Downtown Los Angeles.

The fight was announced on Friday as Young wrote in a post on Instagram, “It’s Official!!! Battle OF LA it’s going down!!! The super Crip Vs Sr SWAGGY.”

Blueface also posted the official flyer on Instagram with the caption, “July 30th at the staples center [smiling face with devil horns emoji.]”

The fight will be available to watch on Pay-Per-View and SocialGloves.TV.

Young spent five of his 12 NBA seasons calling Crypto.com Arena home back when it was known as Staples Center. He spent part of one season with the Los Angeles Clippers and four seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers. The 37-year-old year NBA star spent his time in the NBA from 2007 to 2019.

Blueface, 25, who is also a Los Angeles native like Young, has some fighting experience. The rapper signed with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship last year (2021) and beat TikTok star Kane Trujillo by unanimous decision in a three-round, gloved, amateur bout in July 2021.
