Boxing promoter Jake Paul offered Will Smith and Chris Rock $15 million each to get in the ring and settle their differences after Smith slapped Rock during Sunday’s Oscars ceremony.
Smith took the stage during the televised ceremony and punched Rock in the face after the comedian made a joke about Smith’s wife’s appearance.
“Got $15 million for Will Smith and $15 million for Chris Rock ready to go,” Paul, who runs Most Valuable Promotions, wrote on Twitter.
“Let’s do it in August on my card,” he said, referring to his next fight against an opponent yet to be named.
“Somebody get me on the phone with Will Smith’s boxing rep ASAP.”
Celebrity boxing matches have been a trend in recent years and contributed to the rise of the likes of Paul and his brother Logan, who rose to internet fame before turning to boxing.
While it’s a tempting idea, the odds of the fight happening between Smith, 53, and Rock, 57, are high, TMZ noted.
Both have amassed a fortune in their long careers and Smith, who played legendary boxer Muhammad Ali in the 2001 biopic “Ali,” would have a huge advantage over the comedian in terms of age, height and weight.
