At least 1,223 people want to see Chris Brown get in another fight, and a Los Angeles martial arts expert is one of them, Fox News reports. Anthony Geisler, president of LA Boxing, started a Facebook group called "I want to fight Chris Brown" that invites the singer to step into the ring and "see what it’s like to face a real opponent"—namely, Geisler. So far, 1,222 others have joined.

Meanwhile, Rihanna is enjoying a vengeance of sorts: Sales of her 2007 album saw a 33% boost while Brown’s sales continue to be sluggish, E! reports. Rihanna is no longer in Barbados, where she had retreated after the Feb. 8 incident, according to a source—but wherever she is now, she’s continuing to lay low, and has no scheduled public appearances.
