Jake Paul Offers Will Smith And Chris Rock $30 Million To Fight In Official Boxing Match
| Last updated
Jake Paul wants Will Smith and Chris Rock to make their feud official.
The YouTuber-turned-fighter has challenged the actor and comedian to settle their differences in a boxing ring and has offered up a tantalising payout for them both.
In what's been called 'the slap heard around the world', the 2022 Oscars certainly made some headlines.
Chris Rock made a joke about Will's wife Jada having a shaved head, and while the King Richard star chuckled at first, he hopped up on stage and slapped the comedian across the face.
It was in the middle of the broadcast, in front of everyone at the awards show, and everyone at home got to witness the bizarre moment unfold.
Rock appeared to be stunned by the out-of-the-blue moment and tried to carry on before Smith yelled at him to keep his wife's name out of his 'f***ing mouth'.
A lot has been said about the joke, the slap, the fact that Smith won Best Actor only minutes later, and now Jake Paul wants the heat to continue.
Writing on Twitter, he said: "I got $15m for Will Smith and $15m for Chris Rock ready to go. Let’s do it in August on my undercard."
He added: "Someone get me on the phone with Will Smiths boxing representative asap."

This isn't the first time Paul has offered up a humungous sum of cash to two warring celebrities.
It was earlier this month that he suggested he was willing to front a $60 million purse for Pete Davidson and Kanye West to get in a boxing ring.
Sharing his offer in a tweet, Paul said: "My official @MostVpromotions offer for @kanyewest and Pete Davidson I have $30m guaranteed for Kanye and $30m guaranteed for Pete + PPV upside.
"Money will be put in escrow before. Six-round boxing match. Let’s settle this beef like men, before the children get any more impacted."
He also suggested he would be able to make the Elon Musk and Vladimir Putin fight happen.
However, Paul might not get what he wants with Will Smith and Chris Rock.
According to Diddy, the two have already buried the hatchet and have moved on from the awkward moment at the Oscars.
Speaking at the Vanity Fair bash, the rapper said: "That’s not a problem. That’s over. I can confirm that.
"It’s all love. They’re brothers."
