Report: Chris Brown, Drake Offered $1 Million to Face Off in the Ring
(NEW YORK) — Picture it: Drake in one corner and Chris Brown in the other.
It’s a face-off that celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman would love to see, according to the New York Daily News, telling the newspaper that billionaire soda bottling heir Alki Davis has promised to give Brown and Drake $1 million each to continue their bottle-tossing brawl with a pay-per-view boxing match. A rep for Brown, however, tells ABC News Radio, “We never heard of this offer.”
“Obviously they have a grudge. It’s just three 1-minute rounds. No one will get seriously hurt,” Feldman tells the Daily News, adding that he’s shooting for an August 25 boxing match in Los Angeles or Las Vegas.
Feldman says that Davis has even offered to give $1 million to charity if the boxing match actually goes down.
And while the idea of Brown and Drake sparring off on the small screen may sounds entertaining, the real-life investigation over their reported brawl at New York City nightclub W.i.P. isn’t funny. At least eight people were hurt in the chaos, and police tell the Daily News that investigators are tracking down witnesses to support claims that Drake taunted Brown and his camp with comments about Rihanna.
Meanwhile, an eye injury that NBA player Tony Parker suffered in the mess at W.i.P. may keep him from playing for France’s national team in the Summer Olympics, according to reports.
