RumorFix has learned exclusively that a boxing match between Drake and Chris Brown will not be happening, according to boxing promoter Damon Feldman, because Drake wants no part of Brown in the ring.
Feldman and wealthy entrepreneur Alki David offered Brown and Drake $5 million each to box each other three rounds in a Las Vegas fight. And Brown told RumorFix last month he was open to the idea of boxing his music rival, but “Drake won’t box,” Feldman tells us.
“He said he doesn’t want to go that route. So basically he punked out. There will be no fight now,” he continued.
Brown and Drake’s entourages were involved in a scuffle inside a New York nightclub back in June. Since then, Brown has publicly dissed Drake in a song. “The boxing match would have settled the grudge and helped charities. I’m pissed because Chris Brown wanted this and everything was set!”
A rep for Brown maintains that his client was never formerly offered a deal by Feldman or David, and says that even if he was, Brown would not have boxed in the match.
