The boxer and ‘influencer’ Jake Paul offered 30 million dollars to the actors Will Smith and Chris Rock so that they measure themselves in a ring.
“I have $15 million for Will Smith and another $15 million for Chris Rock ready to go. Let’s do it in August on my billboard,” Paul posted on his social media.
He even put a date on it: “Let’s do it in August on my preliminary card.”
The American youtuber asked “someone to put me on the phone with Will Smith’s boxing representative as soon as possible.”
The fight is almost impossible to happen after Will Smith apologized to the Hollywood Academy and comedian Chris Rock for slapping him during Sunday’s Oscars, minutes before winning the award for best actor.
“My behavior at the Oscars last night was unacceptable and inexcusable,” the actor said in an Instagram post.
