Tough guy rappers Drake and Chris Brown have been offered $1 million apiece to continue their unfinished, nightclub sparring session within the confines of a boxing ring.
The New York Daily News reports
that celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman
said billionaire soda bottling heir Aiki David has offered to back the fight and give another $1 million to charity if the two Rihanna rivals agree to put up their dukes.
"Obviously, they have a grudge. It's just three 1-minute rounds. No one will get seriously hurt," Feldman told the Daily News.
Feldman— who has promoted fights with D-list celebrities like Jose Canseco, Danny Bonaduce and Tonya Harding— said the pay-per-view event could be in Las Vegas or Los Angeles with a target date of Aug. 25.
The infamous, bottle-throwing brawl at a lower-Manhattan nightclub on June 14 left Brown, his girlfriend and six others injured from the melee. San Antonio Spurs guard— and Brown's friend— Tony Parker has filed a $20 million lawsuit against the club, W.i.P., for damage to his left eye after getting hit by flying glass.
NYPD is still investigating claims that Drake taunted Brown and his posse with overtures related to his former girlfriend singer Rihanna— whom they both dated.
The Daily News said a Brown representative told them they had "never heard" about Feldman's offer.
Feldman said he'd like Rihanna to participate in the proposed grudge-match. The scrawny Brown was convicted of beating her up in 2009.
"I would love to have Rihanna as the ring girl," said Feldman.
That might be the best part of the whole fight.
Let's see— without bottles or bodyguards— I would make Drake a legitimate favorite.
