Drake, Chris Brown Offered $1 Million For Celebrity Boxing Match
The world may never know who threw fists during the June 14 brawl at New York City club W.i.P, but for a cool couple million, punches in the nascent Chris Brown-Drake rivalry could be on display for the world to see.
Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman told the New York Daily News that Alki David, a soda bottling and media mogul, is willing to pony up $1 million to each rapper if they're willing to fight in a pay-per-view match.
“Obviously they have a grudge. It’s just three 1-minute rounds. No one will get seriously hurt,” Feldman told the News.
The pair were said to have sparked a club melee after a champagne-and-note exchange gone awry, thanks to their mutual love -- and rocky relationships with -- pop star Rihanna. Neither Drake or Brown are considered suspects in the brawl; Brown, in fact, was labeled a "witness" and a "victim."
As a result of the late night fight, the club, in New York's SoHo district, is in danger of being shut down, with 14 different codes violations. A thrown bottle nearly took out the eye of NBA star Tony Parker, who is suing the club for $20 million; the bottles thrown in the brawl have drawn the attention of New York City Council President Christine Quinn.
