Drake and Chris Brown Offered $1 Million to Fight in Boxing Ring
It’s been not yet a fortnight since the nightclub melee betwixt Drake and Chris Brown, and already the pair could cash in on the feud. Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman has said that Alki David, a billionaire entrepreneur, is willing to fork over $1 million to each musician, plus give an addition million to charity.

“Obviously they have a grudge. It’s just three 1-minute rounds. No one will get seriously hurt,” Feldman told the New York Daily News.

Of course, it remains to be seen whether said proposed pay-per-view match would ever come to fruition, but Los Angeles or Las Vegas (not surprisingly) would be ideal locales.

“We have promoted 55 Celebrity Fights and this would be the most interesting of all,” Feldman continued.

The violent June 14th brawl transpired in New York’s W.i.P. nightclub, and left at least eight people injured. According to reports, it was allegedly over Drake and Brown’s respective relationships with pop chanteuse, Rihanna. As a result of the fight, W.i.P. has been found in violation of 14 separate codes and was closed down by the State Liquor Authority. Likewise, San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker, who suffered a severe eye injury as a result of thrown glass, is suing the club for $20 million. He also stated that he could miss playing for France’s national team in the London 2012 Olympics next month.

Neither Drake nor Brown has commented on the proposed boxing match.
