Chris Rock‘s younger brother, Kenny Rock, revealed to TMZ that he wants to fight Will Smith in a boxing match.
Kenny Rock signed Celebrity Boxing founder Damon Feldman to a contract in early April for a fight in Florida this summer, calling on Will Smith to be his first opponent.
“ I should get in the ring with Will Smith. I’ll let the hands do the talking,” Kenny said
The size difference wouldn’t be a problem for him, even though Will is taller and once played Muhammad Ali on the big screen.
Smith is banned from attending the Oscars for the next ten years for slapping host Chris Rock during the 2022 live broadcast. The actor objected to a joke Rock made about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
Kenny Rock, known for his role as Nick Brownell in the movie “Vesuvius,” hopes the Academy will stick to the restraint it took on Smith.
“They could say a 10-year ban and after three years they’ll think we forgot and put it in there after two years, three years, five years,” he said.
Kenny Rock said Chris Rock is ” doing great ” since the slapping incident, but doubts his brother accepted Will Smith’s apology on Instagram.
