Jackie Chan to fight Russian Champion Boxer in Beijing Olympics

Jackie Chan, international Chinese kung fu star, has agreed to an exhibition fight in Beijing Olympics with Russian boxer Kostya Tszyu, a Russian media reported yesterday.

"Jackie Chan gave his approval, saying he liked the idea", the organiser, Tatyana Trubnikova said. "But we need to receive permission from the Chinese Olympic Committee, as Chan is China's official face for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing."

She said that if permission is given, the bout will take place on 22 or 23 August in Russia House, the official accommodation for the Russian delegates during the Beijing Olympic Games (August 8-24).

The bout between Jackie Chan, 54-year-old Hollywood star, and the 38-year-old Australia-based Russian boxer, an undisputed junior welterweight world champion, will be held as part of festivities for Olympic boxing.
