Feud­ing rap­pers may take to box­ing ring

The Idaho Statesman - - Stay Connected -

Two French rap­pers who fought a run­ning bat­tle in­side a Paris air­port with their en­tourages over the sum­mer are seek­ing to take their dis­pute into a box­ing ring in Bel­gium.

Booba, one of France’s most suc­cess­ful rap artists, an­nounced on so­cial me­dia a “light-heavy­weight cat­e­gory” bout at the Palais 12 venue in Brus­sels on April 5.

Fabrizio Gen­tile, who man­ages the Palais 12 pro­gram agenda, said Fri­day that “we have in­deed re­ceived a re­quest and we are con­sid­er­ing it.” He de­clined to say whether a box­ing ring had been re­quested.

Twelve peo­ple were in­volved in the Aug. 1 bat­tle at Orly air­port. Booba and his one-time col­lab­o­ra­tor Kaaris were given 18-month sus­pended sen­tences and fined 50,000 eu­ros (more than $57,000) each.
