There is no explanation as to why Mark Wahlberg, a 41-year-old actor, would challenge former NHL player and enforcer Tie Domi to a bout in the ring. Perhaps Mark is still coming off the high of filming The Fighter back in 2010!
Whatever the case may be, Mark clearly doesn’t seem to mind putting their friendship to the side for a chance to throw down at the Air Canada Centre in Domi’s hometown of Toronto.
Wahlberg recently told Canadian news website, TheGlobeAndMail.com:
“He still won’t accept the challenge. He keeps saying that he doesn’t want to mess up my pretty face and this and that. But the thing is he has this mystique about him. Especially here in his home country, and he doesn’t want that ruined by getting knocked out by an actor.”
Tie Domi has yet to respond!
