“We are very excited at FilmOn.TV that Chris Brown has accepted to fight his nemesis,”
said David. “Should Drake accept the $ 10 Million Dollar challenge to go toe to toe for three rounds against Chris Brown, both fighters will be put through training leading up to the Las Vegas event in September. They will be trained by iconic names in professional Boxing history.”

“I want these guys to settle their fight started at that nightclub in New York over pop star Rhianna and have something good come out of it,” said David.
