Will Smith vs Mark Wahlberg

Seeing as Will Smith went through extensive boxing training for his role in the movie Ali and so did Mark Wahlberg for his role in the movie The Fighter, a boxing promoter has seen it fit that the two square off in a 3 round fight.

A boxing promoter offered Mark Wahlberg and Will Smith $1,000,000 dollars to get in the ring for a celebrity boxing match.

Damon Feldman, the head of the Hollywood Boxing Federation, is offering a million to each of the stars to show that they cannot just portray boxers, but actually be them too.

Wahlberg has recently portrayed a boxer in his latest film "The Fighter," which opened on in theaters this past Friday.  Smith has also played a boxer in "Ali" in which Will played Muhammad Ali in 2001.

Although the Hollywood Boxing Federation has set up celebrity fights before, they believe this fight will be more intriguing, because both actors were professionally trained for their films.

Mark Whalberg told Sports Illustrated Magazine,

"I spent more money paying my trainers and having them travel with me than I got paid, by a good half a million dollars."

Under Feldman's proposal, Wahlberg and Smith would fight three one-minute rounds. Regulation amateur boxing rounds are normally three minutes long.

"We don't think these two are going to rip each others heads off, we're just hoping to get into the ring and have a little fun duking it out."

This reminds me of MTV's Celebrity Death Match... If it came down to it though I'm pretty sure Marky Mark will hand the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air his ass. Maybe this will put a stop to Willow Smith's dumb ass song, cause I wouldn't appear in public if my dad had to have his ass kicked in public...
