Following their brawl at Manhattan's W.i.P. nightclub earlier this month, Drake and Chris Brown have been offered $1 million each to fight it out in the boxing ring, reports the New York Daily News. Boxing promoter Damon Feldman says billionaire bottling heir Alki David has offered the hefty purses, along with an extra $1 million to charity, if the two artists agree to throw down.
According the Feldman, the fight would be three one-minute rounds, with a hopeful Las Vegas or Los Angeles pay-per-view event tentatively set for August 25th.
A representative for Brown told the Daily News that Brown and his team have "never heard" of the offer. In the fallout following the bar fight, W.i.P. was shutdown by the NYPD, and NBA All-Star Tony Parker, who was present during the incident, has sued the nightclub over eye injuries resulting from the brawl.
