Mark Wahlberg and Will Smith are to fight for $1 mln
The actors have both portrayed boxers on the big screen - Mark in `The Fighter` and Will in `Ali` - and Damon Feldman, CEO of Hollywood Boxing Federation is hoping they will put their sporting skills to the test for a charity bout next February.
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 favourite charities. It would be a great event too. Can you imagine?
"Both guys have trained with professional boxers. WillSmith 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 favourite charities."
If Will, 42, and Mark, 39, agree to take part, they willfight 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 RadarOnline.com: "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."
Other celebrities who have fought in the Hollywood Boxing Federation - which was previously known as the Celebrity Boxing Federation - include Michael Lohan and Danny Bonaduce.
