Singers Chris Brown and Drake have been offered $1 million each to continue their fight in the boxing ring.
The offer was reportedly made by billionaire, Alki David through boxing promoter Damon Feldman, and it involves a $1 million grant to charity if the duo take on the challenge.
Speaking with the New York Daily News newspaper, Feldman said, ‘Obviously they have a grudge. It’s just three one-minute rounds. No
one will get seriously hurt.’
He said the pay-per-view event will hold in either Las Vegas or Los Angeles and suggested Saturday, August 25, 2012, as the date.
On who he would like to have as the ring girl, Feldman expressed interest in Rihanna, saying that although he’s sure she will decline the offer, he is sure she will watch the punch-fest.
However, representatives from both camp are yet to declare any interest in the game.
The two artistes were recently involved in a fracas in the W.I.P nightclub, Manhattan, which led to a free for all fight injuring eight people,
including NBA star, Tony Parker.
Meanwhile, rapper 50 cent has thrown his weight behind Chris Brown. He said this during an interview with California radio station KMEL,
‘I would take Chris…I guess it’s cause of all the physical things I see him doing with dancing and moving. He be slipping and moving. I
don’t see Drake doing that. Chris be having his shirt off. He got one of them MMA fighter looks. Like he might have did karate when he was a kid. He’s kicking, doing splits and stuff. This could really get interesting’ he said.
Though the likelihood of the boxing match happening remains slim, one sure thing is the frenzy it will generate in the minds of the fans
of both artistes.
