PARIS - Two feuding French rappers have sparked hilarity on social media by vowing to settle their differences in the ring with a no-rules cage fight.

Bitter rivals Booba and Kaaris ended up behind bars in August after a running battle between their entourages shut down part of a Paris airport.

Yet a month in solitary confinement, heavy fines and the threat of 18 more months behind bars has done nothing to cool their animosity.

After an exchange of blood-curdling Christmas greetings on social media, the pair say they will "bury the hatchet" in a no-rules cage fight in the New Year.

Hostilities flared again between the rivals on Christmas Day, when traditionally goodwill is supposed to reign between all men.

Kaaris was first to break the truce by challenging his rival to "come and get me. You know where to find me".

Booba, known as the "Duke of Boulogne", rose immediately to the bait, posting a video of himself on Instagram stripped to the waist to reveal his muscled and tattooed torso.

"I am waiting for the day, for the hour, brother. No referee, just an octagon (cage of the type used in ultra-violent MMA, mixed martial arts, bouts)."
