Paul Gascoigne wants a charity boxing match with Snoop Dogg

01 July 2019, 11:02 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Paul Gascoigne has challenged Snoop Dogg to a charity boxing match after he posted an alcohol abuse meme with his picture.

The legendary footballer and rapper have been throwing shade at each other over the past week, beginning with Snoop Dogg posting a meme comparing alcohol abuse to marijuana abuse.

Gascoigne responded with an image of a dog that looks pretty similar to Dogg, calling him an "ugly twat".

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Gascoigne revealed, "I was in Spain doing a couple of charity events and I hoped I might get some decent press and when I landed my Twitter page went mad. I thought, "What’s happening?" When I found out it was Snoop Dogg I was like, "Why me?" I expect it from the English press, but it came from Snoop Dogg."

The retired footballer added, "I’m a fan of [Snoop Dogg] as well, I can’t believe it. I’ll tell you what I’d do, I’d do a charity boxing match with him. Cannabis versus booze, bring it on! I’ll take him in the ring. I’ve been working hard, working out."

Snoop Dogg is yet to respond. He plays some shows in North America this summer. Find out more.
