Rapper and Triller co-owner Ryan Cavanaugh is working on The Fight Club, which will allow Snoopy to fulfill his dream as a boxing play-by-play announcer.

News of the venture comes just days after Snoop wowed boxing fans with his play-by-play call of Saturday’s Mike Tyson/Roy Jones Jr. fight in Los Angeles.

“We’re changing the whole game,” Snoop says. “Boxing will never be the same and the audience now expects a new standard. Fight Club is that standard.”

Cavanaugh told TMZ on Wednesday: “This was the first event in the league that we called ‘Fight Club.’ It’s a league owned by Proxima, the parent company of Triller and Snoop, and this was the first of many, many events. The whole idea is that we want to change the way boxing is done. This is going to be big.”

Cavanaugh reveals that another high-profile boxing match is in the works, adding: “I can tell you that the main event… is going to be something that everyone wants to see. If you thought (Tyson’s match) was big, I think this would be bigger in terms of global appetite and something that people want to see.”
