World famous Chinese kung-fu star and martial artist Jackie Chan has agreed to an exhibition fight in China with Russian boxer Kostya Tszyu, an event organizer said on Thursday. "Jackie Chan gave his approval, saying he liked the idea," 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 August 22 or 23 in Russia House, which will be accommodating the Russian delegation to the Beijing Games, scheduled for August 8-24. The bout between the 54-year-old Hollywood star and the 38-year-old Australia-based Russian boxer, the undisputed junior welterweight world champion, will be held as part of festivities for Olympic boxing.
