On Wednesday, promoter Triller Fight Club announced a star-studded lineup of performers during the April 17 pay-per-view event at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The card is headlined by a boxing match between Paul and Askren.
Among the names set to perform are Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Doja Cat, Saweetie, Diplo, and Major Lazer. Additionally, Mt. Westmore, a newly comprised hip-hop group featuring rap legends Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Too $hort, and E-40 also will perform.
“Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Bert Marcus will lead and direct the creative storytelling for the Triller Fight Club event,” according to a press release.
“Triller has already begun to revolutionize the great American sport of boxing,” Marcus said, in a statement Wednesday. “I’m proud to be taking it to the next level and lead the direction of an unprecedented sporting event through the lens of music entertainment and unmatched behind-the-scenes access, particularly during this time when people haven’t had many chances to have (shared) important cultural experiences.
“This incredible lineup of talent is proof that this ground-breaking new format is craved by fans and artists alike. This event will be unlike anything anyone has seen, think ‘Stranger Things’ meets Tarantino.”
Additional boxing matches on the card include a super lightweight fight between Regis Prograis and Ivan Redkach, former UFC heavyweight champ Frank Mir vs. former light heavyweight and cruiserweight boxing champion Antonio Tarver, as well as Joe Fournier vs. reggae musician Reykon.
The event will stream live on FITE.
