It seems the Rock brothers are out for revenge against the Smith family for “The Slap” that has had the whole of America in an uproar.
Tony, Rock’s brother, has been trending recently with videos of his stand up routines addressing the infamous event. But Kenny Rock, the younger brother, wants to settle things in the ring; specifically the Celebrity Boxing ring.

In an interview with Complex, Kenny shared that he signed a contract with Celebrity Boxing, and that his number one opponent is Will Smith. “I should get in the ring with Will Smith. I’ll let the hands do the talking,” Kenny said. He also noted that he doubts Chris Rock will forgive the King Richard star.
Kenny shared that he also doubts the Oscars 10-year ban against Will Smith.
“We have to see if he’s actually going to get the 10-year ban. They might say a 10-year ban and after three years they’ll think we may have forgot about it and they’ll slide him in there after two years, three years, five years. So we have to make sure these people do what they say they’re going to do.”
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Kenny expressed his frustration with the amount of attention the attack received on social media.
“It eats at me watching [the slap] over and over again because you’ve seen a loved one being attacked and there’s nothing you can do about it,” he explained. “My brother was no threat to him and you just had no respect for him at that moment. You just belittled him in front of millions of people that watch the show.”
“I might have looked at it differently had he initially apologized when he got on the stage and cried and accepted the award, but he didn’t, so, right there that tells me that it is something else.”
