Bovey has successfully organized celebrity matches in the past… though they were hardly A-list affairs (see: Danny Bonaduce vs. Michael Lohan). Despite Bovey’s offer that all proceeds would go to Smith and Wahlberg’s charities of choice, a match between these two movie-trained boxers (Smith for Ali and Wahlberg for The Fighter) seems unlikely to come to fruition.

In the meantime, I’m now imagining other provocative celeb-offs. Oprah vs. Tyra Banks is a show I would default on my school loans to fund. Also, Zooey Deschanel vs. her twin Katy Perry. (Has anyone seen them in a room together?). Then there’s Conan O’Brien vs. Jay Leno, Kathie Lee vs. Hoda, Taylor Swift vs. Amy Winehouse… the possibilities are actually endless!

So what about it PopWatchers: Any celebs you’d love to see duke it out? (And how late 1990s does this all feel right now?) Comment away!
