Mark Wahlberg, Will Smith Offered $1M to Participate in Charity Boxing Match.

Mark Wahlberg and Will Smith are being offered $1 million apiece to go at it in the boxing ring. It's not because they're enemies or anything -- they've just both portrayed fighters on the big screen, and the CEO of the Hollywood Boxing Federation thinks these two would be a great match. Damon Feldman is hoping these two sign on for the charity event in February 2011.
Damon said: "This will be a great opportunity for both stars to fight in the Superbowl of Hollywood boxing and to donate millions to their favorite charities.

It would be a great event too. Can you imagine? Both guys have trained with professional boxers. Will Smith played Muhammad Ali in Ali and was phenomenal. Wahlberg is currently playing Mickey Ward in The Fighter. Come on, I really think that this would be a huge event and great way for them to donate to their favorite charities."

If Will, 42, and Mark, 39, agree to take part, they will fight three one-minute rounds on February 26 at an as-yet undetermined Las Vegas location, with Damon insisting he is just looking for a fun bout between the two.

He added to "We don't think these two are going to rip each other's heads off. We're just hoping they get into the ring and have a little fun duking it out."
