06:50 PM ET 12.05 | Who knew Mark Wahlberg and Tie Domi were good friends? Wahlberg was in Toronto for a charity event called CIBC's Miracle Day and challenged Domi to a boxing match at the Air Canada Centre. Wahlberg said the fight would be a good idea for some entertainment since there is no hockey in Canada right now. Thanks for reminding us Mark. Wahlberg of course is an actor who has starred in such movies as Ted, The Italian Job, Invincible, and Planet of the Apes. He is also a producer on HBO's critically acclaimed series Boardwalk Empire. Not to mention his awkward career as a rapper with Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch during the early 1990s. Domi ultimately passed on the fight citing he didn't want to screw up Wahlberg's pretty face and movie career. If they did come to blows, however, I wonder who would come out victorious. If the fight was on the ice I would have to go with Domi, as he probably is a better skater than Wahlberg. Keyword there being probably. If it was contested in the ring, Wahlberg may have the upper hand thanks to fitness and a better reach.

I kind of agree with the story. If Domi was in the rink, on skates and had a stick in his hands he's the favorite. In the ring he's ko'd.

On the otherhand, maybe he would beat Tie upside the noggin with that faux appendage he was packing in Boogie Nights. That sucker had some mass.....

Not sure about that. Domi has a head like a bowling ball. Guy could take some hellacious punches.

Mark Wahlberg should pick on someone his own age. Shame on him.
