A man dubbed "Elon Musk's twin brother" has stepped up his training "just in case" he has to join the "fight of the century" against Mark Zuckerberg.
The online sensation, Ma Yilong, went viral on Douyin — a Chinese version of TikTok — thanks to his uncanny resemblance to SpaceX boss.
Since Elon Musk tweeted "I'm up for a cage fight if he is" to the Facebook founder, the two tech bosses have been hitting headlines with updates of their training.

The proposed fight is said to be on August 26 in "The Octagon", a popular mixed martial arts championship venue in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Ma, the Musk doppelgänger, recently posted a video on TikTok as he stood in front of a Tesla car with a man holding up a box that's attached with a picture of Mark Zuckerberg.
Dressed only in a pair of boxers, Ma put on a pair of boxing gloves and swung his arms, saying in broken English: "Come on.
"Come on, come on."
His co-star "Zuckerberg" pulled out a marker pen and wrote an "X" on his stomach.
Ma retaliated with a punch and shouted: "X! Wow!"
In the comedy stunt, "Zuckerberg" took a few steps back and went out of the camera frame and appearing to groan in pain.
Ma continued: "X! Very cool! Very cool! Wa, wa, wa!"
Viewers were still puzzled by his appearance, with one saying: "I'm still shocked every time I see him."
"I would love to see him next to Elon!" a second commented.
Ma was accused of using deepfake technology to morph his face into Elon Musk on camera, as Musk, himself, tweeted: "I'd like to meet this guy (if he is real).
"Hard to tell with deepfakes these days."
The X chief tweeted yesterday a video of WWE's SummerSlam and announced: "I am going with WWE as my fighting style."
