Chris Brown and Drake offered $1m for boxing match


If you've been keeping up with the Jersey Shore-esque events of Rihanna's love life then you'll know that things reached a "you won't believe what's coming up after the break" boiling point earlier this month.

Her ex Chris Brown and "friend" Drake were involved in a scuffle at a New York nightclub that resulted in some random strangers getting injured, a whole tirade of angry tweets and, worst of all, a gash on Chris Brown's chin. Tsk.

But with the two singers still at odds, boxing promoter Damon Feldman has revealed that billionaire entrepreneur Alki David has offered to pay both of them $1,000,000 (£640,000) to settle their feud in the ring. Plus he'll also give another million to charity.

Feldman told the New York Daily News that it would just be "three one-minute rounds" and no-one would get "seriously hurt".

Which sounds like a real shame.

Who would you put your money on?
