In June, the ‘Certified Lover Boy’ star’s impersonator challenged Drizzy for a celebrity boxing match and promised that he’ll drop the impersonation if the rapper loses the match.
AceShowbiz –Drake allegedly wants to slap his doppelganger. According to Fake Drake a.k.a. Izzy Drake, the “Certified Lover Boy” artist once threatened to slap him “for free” after he turned down a $1 million boxing match.
On Thursday, August 25, the “We in Miami” podcast aired a snippet of an upcoming episode with Izzy, who relayed a story about his failed attempt to get Drake to fight him for a million. According to the Canadian rapper’s impersonator, after he made his online proposal, he ran into the star’s team in Miami.
“I pulled up to Drake’s hotel room, let’s just say it wasn’t very inviting,” Izzy said. “They tried coming at us, they just tried coming at us so I ended up texting him, telling him about the fight and he said that he’s gonna go up and slap me for free.”
In June, Izzy directly challenged Drake to a $1 million celebrity boxing match. Izzy even promised that he’ll drop the impersonation if Drake loses the match. “It’s your boy Izzy Drake, OVO tings, you already know we outside. I just signed with Celebrity Boxing,” he said in the video. “August 27th, I’m calling Drake out for a friendly boxing match. If I win, you gotta sign me to OVO you gotta give me a million dollars. If you win, I’ll change my name. It’s an OVO ting, you already know.”
Izzy is still trying to hold onto the fame he gained from going viral impersonating the world-famous rap star. The “One Dance” spitter look-alike first caught the attention of the internet last year.
In November 2021, Izzy claimed he was getting $5,000 to appear at parties. A few months later, he claimed yesterday’s price was not today’s price, boasting $10,000 was his performance fee.
Fast forward to June this year, a video surfaced that appeared to show Izzy getting kicked out of a club in Houston. One month later, Izzy was removed from Instagram for impersonating the Grammy-winning rapper.
