After a club scuffle between Chris Brown and Drake a few weeks ago, promoter Damon Feldman of Pennsylvania’s Celebrity Boxing Federation has offered them $1 million apiece to duke it out, promising another million to a charity for abused women. The fight would follow the Queensbury Rules, requiring gloves for the three rounds of fighting. With the financial backing of digital entrepreneur Alki David, Feldman hopes the event will take place in Las Vegas or Los Angeles on August 25th, but as of right now, neither performer has responded to or commented on the offer.
Feldman’s previous contenders have included Lindsay Lohan’s father, Michael, Jose Canseco and Danny Bonaduce, lower-tier celebrities with polarizing pasts. Drake and Brown are both worldwide superstars, despite Brown’s past indiscretions, which would make this one of his most high profile fights. While some may perceive the charitable donation surrounding the fight as adding a notch of nobility, Feldman told the New York Times that he wants Rihanna, who was rumored to inspire the initial clash, as ring girl at the fight. He noted, “If she doesn’t take our offer, we know she’ll be watching.”
