Out in the real world news is happening and here are the highlights.

Mayweather Trains Soulja Boy For Chris Brown Fight

As we reported yesterday, Chris Brown challenged Soulja Boy to a fight over a comment he made on his ex-girlfriend's Instagram post. Well, it's confirmed: the two has-been musicians will duke it out in a celebrity boxing match with a $1,000,000 prize going to the winner. Not only that, but Soulja Boy has got unbeaten champ Floyd Mayweather on side as his trainer. It's like a real-life version of MTV's Celebrity Deathmatch. – BBC News

Tuna sells for $635K at Japanese auction

A giant bluefin tuna that weighs in at 467 pounds was sold off at Tokyo's famous Tsukiji fish market for $635,000. Bought by Kiyomura, the operator of the Sushi Zanmai restaurant chain, the first auction of the year attracts a lot of publicity and is, therefore, used as a marketing opportunity for food companies and restaurants. It's the second-highest sale since records began in 1999, the highest of which came four years ago, also from Kiyomura, who spent $1.33 million on a single tuna at the time. Conservationists, meanwhile, keep reminding the world that decades of over fishing are driving the species to extinction, but it's quite clear that they're being ignored. – The Guardian

New York Times app removed from Chinese Apple app store

Apple has been forced to remove the New York Times app from its Chinese store after the country's pseudo-communist regime told the tech giant that the app supposedly violates some sort of local regulation, which we can only assume could be a ban on free speech and critical thought – after all, the Chinese regime began blocking the NYT’s websites in 2012, after a series of articles on the wealth amassed by the family of Wen Jiabao, who was then-prime minister. Apps are more difficult to block, thus the easiest way of doing so is by forcing tech companies to remove them completely, and a company like Apple is never going to put its profits at risk by standing up for democratic principles. – New York Times

Golden State beat the Trailblazers

NBA champions-elect (although, many thought the same last season until they lost), the Golden State Warriors, beat the Portland Trailblazers by a 125-117 scoreline, further cementing their position at the top of the Western Conference. Stephen Curry helped himself to 35 point, which came via five three-pointers, while Kevin Durant bagged 30 points. – Oregon Live
