What's a slap when you can duke out all your issues in the boxing ring? According to Chris Rock's brother Kenny Rock, he's ready to step up and go head to head with Will Smith in a boxing match and settle the beef once and for all. Talk about brotherly love...

In the wake of all the Oscar buzz surrounding the infamous Chris Rock and Will Smith debacle, stars are coming out left and right, letting their thoughts be known regarding the situation - including Rock's brother, Kenny Rock, who is ready to take down The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor. As reported by TMZ, the younger Rock brother recently inked a deal with Celebrity Boxing founder Damon Feldman for a fight slated to go down this summer at the Charles F. Dodge City Center in Pembroke Pines, Florida. Rock currently doesn't have an opponent attached to the match but has openly and confidently invited Smith to some friendly competition. In a recent interview with Kenny Rock, the celeb noted, "I should get in the ring with Will Smith." He continued to say, "I could take him down!" Despite Will Smith's training in preparation for his role as Muhammad Ali, Rock is confident he can take him, adding, "I'll let the hands do the talking."

In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Kenny Rock said, "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." He even called on the academy to strip Smith from his award. But Kenny is not the only Rock brother feeling some type of way about the incident; the third Rock brother, comedian Tony Rock had an opinion too. According to Kenny's conversation with TMZTony Rock is "taking it kind of personally," and he made it known to his audience at a set in North Carolina on the No Remorse Comedy Tour. Tony Rock announced to the crowd, "You gon' hit my f****n' brother? 'Cause your b***h gave you a side-eye?" Clearly he's not over the situation, either.
