Drake and Chris Brown offered $1M for boxing match
A boxing promoter has offered R&B star Chris Brown and Toronto rapper Drake $1 million each to go head-to-head in a pay-per-view boxing match in the wake of a nightclub melee allegedly involving their respective entourages.
Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman told the New York Daily News that soda and media mogul Alki David has put the cash on the table to encourage the two to settle whatever score caused the brawl at New York's W.i.P. nightclub on June 14 that left Brown with a gash in his chin and several others injured.
"Obviously they have a grudge," Feldman said. "It’s just three 1-minute rounds. No one will get seriously hurt."
He added that the event could take place in Las Vegas on August 25.
Brown's rep told the News that the star hasn't heard of the offer. Neither Brown or Drake are considered suspects in a subsequent police investigation into the incident.
Even if both men turn down the re-match, it likely won't be the last we hear of the story. Police have since shut down the nightclub and are threatening to revoke its license after citing its owner with 14 code violations. Furthermore, NBA star Tony Parker, who was nearby when the brawl errupted, claims that he sustained an eye injury that required surgery and is now suing the club for $20 million.
