Timbaland and Swizz Beats are part of the Verzuz rap battle scene. Michael Hunter was in the 2012 Olympics and has had a draw match with 2019 Olympic gold medallist Alexander Povetkin.

Chris Algieri is also going to be up against, not yet determined competitor.
The Ryan Kavanaugh News keeps on giving, as the man keeps on making deals and business decisions that seem to favour the future of entertainment. Although it is a one-year deal, it can lead to more offshoots that would be available to TrillerTV users. The deal was orchestrated by Peter Kahn, the chief boxing officer, and the idea seems to have been made at the right time.
A lot of interest has been generated by boxing and pay-per-view boxing matches lately, especially due to the pandemic. People want to enjoy the sport thoroughly. There seems to be a renewed interest that TrillerTV has rightly captured. Having Timbaland and Swizz Beats on the “Verzuz” part of the show also brings in a newer audience. TrillerTV seems to have captured a unique combination of audience, people that are ready to watch both the battle of the brawns and the battle of raps.
