Apparently some promoter has put up $1,000,000 for these two to go at it. Who do you think would win? They both played some sort of boxing role in their movies. If we were to go by character in film then Will Smith would most definitely take the crown, since he was Ali.
Damon Feldman is the promoter and he wants to show people that not only can these two men act as boxers but they can actually do the real thing in the ring. Both fighters have trained for their roles previously and Wahlberg has even considered a career in boxing instead of acting. Supposedly he’s mentioned before that if he did take up boxing earlier in his life then he could have taken on Manny Pacquiao. Cool your jets Mark, I wouldn’t take it that far.
