Drake lookalike Izzy Drake, also known as Fake Drake, has challenged the Honestly, Nevermind artist to a $1 million celebrity boxing match.
Per TMZ, Izzy directly asked the real Drake to duke it out, saying in a video that he’ll drop the impersonation if he 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 in which he challenges Drizzy. “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.”
He made similar comments in a recent appearance on the We in Miami podcast, as seen below. "I’ll change my name from Izzy Drake to just Izzy, you know,” he said. "I’m just trying to feed my family."
Fake Drake’s offer to jump in the ring with Aubrey, who clearly doesn’t need $1 million after selling his Hidden Hills “YOLO Estate” for $12 million, comes not long after he was kicked out of a Houston club. As TMZ reported, promoters DJ Eric and Chris Chizer noticed Izzy Drake was in the establishment and demanded security remove him.
Drake himself hasn’t directly responded to that situation, but he did like Akademiks’ Instagram post about it.
