How It Started
It is speculated that the rift between the two men started in 2016 when SpaceX was commissioned to launch a satellite for Zuckerberg that would have provided internet to remote parts of Africa. However, the launch failed, and Zuckerberg’s satellite was destroyed. Since then, the two industry giants have quarreled to some extent, with the rift only escalating since Musk purchased Twitter in late 2022.
Known for his controversial tweets, Musk posted that he was “up for a cage fight” with Zuckerberg. In response, Zuckerberg posted on Instagram, “Send me a location.” To add to the back in, fourth Musk went on to tweet:

What Are The Odds For The Fight?
Online sports betting sites serving the Philippines offer odds for the fight over the web. While it is still improbable to manifest into an actual cage fight, early odds have the younger Zuckerberg favored to win the bout. Musk has stated that he will train for the event if the fight is confirmed.
The PPV is estimated to surpass any other PPV in history far. The cost will likely be in the one-hundred-dollar range to stream the matchup, and experts predict that the fight could bring upwards of $1 billion in revenue. As Dana’s video above has suggested, the fight will likely be for a charity organization.
Is It Legal To Bet Online In The Philippines?
Yes, no laws prevent Filipinos from gambling online in the Philippines. However, the only sportsbooks you will find online are from outside the country.
Gambling laws in the Philippines only address domestic online sportsbooks and forbid them from offering their services online to the Philippines. Domestic sportsbooks can operate online to other countries with a Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGO) license.
