Chris Rock’s younger brother, Kenny Rock has challenged Will Smith to a boxing match after assaulting his brother at the Academy Awards.
Kenny Rock who just signed a deal in early April with Celebrity Boxing founder, Damon Feldman, has drawn up a contract for a potential match, should Smith decide to accept his offer.
“I should get in the ring with Will Smith,’ Kenny said. ‘I could take him down… I’ll let the hands do the talking.” Kenny said to TMZ.
The 42-year-old boxer said his brother is doing great after the assaults but doubts if he has accepted Will Smith’s Instagram apology.
Kenny said it pains him that he can’t do anything at the moment, and that watching it over and over eats him.
“It eats at me watching it over and over again, because you’ve seen a loved one being attacked and there’s nothing you can do about it.
“Every time I’m watching the videos, it’s like a rendition that just keeps going over and over in my head,” Kenny continued. “My brother was no threat to him and you just had no respect for him at that moment. You just belittled him in front of millions of people that watch the show.” He stated.
Will Smith’s Academy Ban
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, announced last Friday that they have banned Smith from Oscar ceremonies for 10 years as a result of his assault on Chris Rock.
Kenny Rock, who is known for his role as Nick Bromnell in the film ‘Vesuvius’, hopes the Academy stay true to their ban of Will Smith.
“We have to see if he’s actually going to get the 10-year ban,” said Kenny Rock.
“They might say a 10-year ban and after three years they’ll think we may have forgot about it and they’ll slide him in there after two years, three years, five years.
“So we have to make sure these people do what they say they’re going to do.” He concluded.
