R100 000? How much was Slik Talk paid for the boxing match with Cassper Nyovest?
After failing to live up to his billing, Slik Talk proved to be more of a talker and boxer; he could not match Cassper’s boxing skills and intensity. Slik was knocked out in the first round but had to plead with the referees and other match officials to get the right back again for the sake of television. His mission to turn the match into a hugging session failed dismally as Cassper “Iron Tyson” Nyovest mercilessly landed punches on his face.
The match ended subsequently, and Cassper was declared the winner by knockout after a visibly fists drunk Slik Talk took in excessive punches.
Before the match, Cassper made two pledges to his opponent; he promised that Slik Talk would receive R100 000 for showing up to the match and an additional R100 000 if he fails to knock him out in three rounds.
With the boxing match only structured to last nine minutes – three rounds of three minutes each, Slik was knocked out in the first round after one minute and thirty-three seconds.
After showing such performance, Youtuber Slik Talk won R100 000 appearance fee but failed to secure the other R100 000 for knocking Cassper Nyovest out.
