Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman, who was previously willing to pay Chris Brown and Drake $1 million for a charity showdown, didn't think the initial offer was enough to lure the two rappers to the ring. So, he raised the prize up to $10 million.
The winner would get $9 million, and the rest presumably would go to the loser. "Instead of doing it in a bar fight, they can get paid," the owner of Celebrity Boxing Federation told E! News. The plan was pitting the rappers against each other in three one-minute rounds in Las Vegas.
Partnering with wealthy businessman Alki David, Feldman claimed they have been in talks with Chris' camp and they are "up for it." The promoters additionally would like to have Rihanna involved. "One thing we know, if she doesn't be the ring girl, she will be watching," Feldman said.
"The audience needs their imagination captured as much as the fighters do. These are two very important rap artists who will only do this for a big ticket number," David gushed. "This is something that should be attractive enough to get them in the ring."
Contrary to Feldman's claim that there's negotiation, Chris' representative stated, "We collectively have never heard from these people nor is there anyone named 'CJ.' This is a tacky PR campaign by these people using Chris and Drake."
