Ha. They've got enough $$$$$!
Sources are reporting that Mark Wahlberg and Will Smith have been offered $1 million each to fight in a celebrity boxing match in February in Vegas. Damon Feldman, the CEO of Hollywood Boxing Federation, has decided these are the two celebs worth shelling out the cash.
In truth, the pair both have had professional boxing training (Will for playing Muhammad Ali in Ali and Mark for his new role in The Fighter), but we don't see why either of them would want to put their skills to real life use. Damon is gunning for the charity angle, hoping the pair will consider it for the sizable donation they could make to a cause. He told sources:
"Come on, I really think that this would be a huge event and great way for them to donate to their favorite charities…We don't think these two are going to rip each others heads off. We're just hoping they get into the ring and have a little fun duking it out."
We doubt it, but stranger things have happened! It certainly would be great way for Mark to promote his movie!
