UPDATE: Reps for both Chris Brown and Drake deny their clients are fighting. This is an attempt by Celebrity Boxing to drum up press for their organization.
They’ve been rumored to be fighting for the heart of Rihanna for months and there’s still no 100% clear winner. So Chris Brown and Drake are doing exactly what any red blooded American/Canadian boys (in the 1840s) would do: box it out.
After several offers for an official match by Celebrity Boxing, Brown and Drake have agreed to punch it out during three one-minute rounds (such babies!) in 24 oz. gloves for a charity match at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas.
The match is a carry over ‘grudge match’ from their brawl at the W.i.P nightclub in June. Tony Parker, who was hurt in the fight and is currently suing the club, is going to ref the match, which will go down on Saturday, September 22nd.
According to Damon Feldman of Celebrity Boxing, Brown and Drake signed the contract through their reps (so they didn’t have to see each other’s stinky faces, probably). Drake’s rep has said that Drake is going to “End it in 2 rounds” and Brown’s rep’s only comment was that it would be a “great fight.” I sincerely hope that this means that Drake will beat Brown’s lady-smacking a$$.
"This will be the celeb fight of the century," says Feldman. If you want to see them brawl, tickets go on sale this week!
