Could Chris Brown and Drake Be Headed For the Boxing Ring?

Unless you've been living under a rock the past few weeks, you already know the tensions between Chris Brown and Drake took a turn for the worse when a brawl erupted at W.i.P. Nightclub in New York on June 14, between the two crews. 

I suppose there is light at the end of this dark tunnel for others hoping to capitalize on the feud. Celebrity Boxing promoter, Damon Feldman has supposedly approached the two singers about duking it out in the ring. In the past, Feldman has organized and promoted "55 Celebrity Fights and this one would be the most exciting of all." Celebrity Boxing has organized fights featuring Rodney King, Michael Lohan, and Nadya Suleman (aka Octomom) just to name a few. CNN is also reporting that Feldman will be contacting Rihanna's camp to have her help officiate the duel as a ring girl, though he "acknowledges she'll likely pass." 

So what about the bottom line? Feldman has allegedly offered the two men $1 million apiece to duke it out in the ring in front of a crowd at the Staples Center in Los Angeles this August.   

If there was any saving grace for this situation, Feldman's financial backer, businessman Alki Davis has also pledged to donate $1 million to a charity helping abused women in addition to the proceeds of the fight going to charity, assuming the fight takes place. 

Could a rematch between the two entertainers really be for a good cause? The fight itself would "feature three minute-long rounds with the participants donning oversized gloves and protective headgear."  

Even though Feldman claims "No one will get seriously hurt," it seems a little too twisted for me to have people working to promote the fight which will then in turn support charities helping stop violence and abuse. Despite neither artists responding yet to the alleged offer, I can't help but wonder if they'll accept and if so, who would take the win?
