Multimillionaire actors Mark Wahlberg and Will Smith stand to add another staggering $1 million to their fortunes if they agree to duel against each otheri in a celebrity boxing match live from Las Vegas.
The Hollywood Boxing Federation — which has featured matches with celebs Michael Lohan and Danny Bonaduce — has offered the A-listers a cash donation to the favorite charities in exchange for the event. The actors have both portrayed boxers on the big screen – Mark in The Fighter and Will in Ali – and Damon Feldman, CEO of Hollywood Boxing Federation, hopes they’ll put their sporting skills to the test for a charity bout next February.
“This will be a great opportunity for both stars to fight in the Superbowl of Hollywood boxing and to donate millions to their favorite charities. It would be a great event too. Can you imagine?” Damon told RadarOnline.com.
If Will, 42, and Mark, 39, agree to take part, they will fight three one-minute rounds on Feb. 26 at an as-yet undetermined Las Vegas location. Damon says he’s just looking for a fun bout between two of Hollywood’s hottest stars.
“Both guys have trained with professional boxers. Will Smith played Muhammad Ali in Ali and was phenomenal. Wahlberg is currently playing Mickey Ward in The Fighter,” he added. “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 other’s heads off. We’re just hoping they get into the ring and have a little fun duking it out.”
We’re putting our money on Mark. Those Beantown Boys are tougher than they look.
