A-list movie star and former TV monarch Will Smith has been offered $1 million to get in the ring with improbable hunk Mark Wahlberg in what could be the charity boxing match to end them all.
The two ex-rappers have been asked to duke it out by celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman who expects the pair to smash their gloved fists into one another next February in Las Vegas.
Smith has a height advantage over Wahlberg, whose 5’9” frame is dwarfed by that of the 6’2” star who previously played Muhammad Ali in the iconic boxer’s biopic. However, dinky beefcake Wahlberg is not only known for his buffness but is also a trained-up boxer who is tipped for an Oscar based on his performance in upcoming film The Fighter. Which is a boxing film. About a boxer.
Whether these multimillionaires will take their pugilistic skills into the ring for charity remains to be seen, but who wouldn’t want to watch this three-round bout of celebrity fisticuffs?
