Meanwhile, his siblings Kenny have said he will meet Will in the boxing ring.

Kenny, 42, appeared alongside Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman in New York City on Tuesday and told TMZ that he has drafted a contract for a potential fight should Smith decide to accept his offer.

The open contract Kenny signed was for a fight to take place at the Charles F. Dodge City Center in Pembroke Pines, Florida on June 11th.

“I should get in the ring with Will Smith,” Kenny said. “I could take him down … I let my hands talk.”

Kenny told the store that he has ‘texted and talked’ to Chris, who ‘is fine’ weeks after the incident.

Kenny expressed skepticism about the 10-year ban Smith received from the Oscars last week after beating the comedian during the show on March 27.

“We have to see if he actually gets the 10-year quarantine,” Kenny said. “After three years, they might think we’re forgetting it and then shut him in … we have to make sure these people do what they say they want to do.”

Kenny said he doubted Rock accepted the apology Smith issued against Rock on social media after the meeting, adding that he ‘did not want to bring it up’ when he spoke to his brother.

Kenny was asked about comments his brother Tony Rock, 47, made after the Oscars when Tony told the Los Angeles Times that he was concerned about the physical assault on his siblings in front of a worldwide audience.

Kenny appeared alongside Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman in New York City on Tuesday and told TMZ that he has signed a contract for a potential match if Smith decides to accept his offer.

“It eats at me to see it again and again, for you have seen a loved one being attacked, and there is nothing you can do about it,” Tony told the newspaper on April 4. “Every time I watch the videos, it’s like a rendition that just keeps going over and over in my head.

‘My brother was no threat to him and you just had no respect for him at that moment. You just humiliated him in front of millions of people watching the show. ‘

Kenny told TMZ that he did not blame Tony – who said the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences should take the award for best actress, Smith won for King Richard during the case – for “taking it a little personal.”

In the wake of the incident, Smith’s former musical collaborator DJ Jazzy Jeff, 57, came to his defense while performing in Chicago’s Dorian’s Through The Record Shop for a closed session legend conversation.

DJ Jazzy Jeff said Smith’s slap with rock was due to an uncharacteristic “decline in judgment” on Smith’s part, which he probably regrets.

“Do not get distorted that it was something he was proud of: it was a judgment, you know?” the musical artist, who was half of Grammy-winning tandem DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, said in a clip posted on WGCI Chicago’s Instagram page.

He added: ‘I think what I have realized is that I do not know too many people who have had the least degree of judgment than him. I can mention 50 times that he should have smashed someone and he did not. So in order for him to have a decay in judgment, he is human. And I think a lot of the criticism comes from the people who don’t think such people are human. “

The Oscar exchange between Smith and Rock took place after Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head and said, “Sure, I love you, GI Jane 2, can not wait to see it,” referring to the film from 1997, which featured Demi Moore with a shaved head. (Pinkett Smith, 50, has been diagnosed with alopecia, which causes hair loss.)

Smith then went on stage and beat Rock, then returned to his seat and shouted at him twice, “Keep my wife’s name away from your damn mouth!” to an astonished audience at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California.

Chris Rock has remained relatively mother about the incident that involved Smith at the Oscars, and has briefly talked about it at a couple of comedy shows in the two weeks that have passed since the shocking incident.

The Emmy-winning performer performed Friday at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, telling the audience: ‘I’m okay. I have a whole show and I will not talk about it until I get paid, ‘the Palm Springs Desert Sun reported.
