Fabrizio Gentile, who manages the Palais 12 program agenda, said Friday that “we have indeed received a request and we are considering it.” He declined to say whether a boxing ring had been requested.

Twelve people were involved in the Aug. 1 battle at Orly airport. Booba and his one-time collaborator Kaaris were given 18-month suspended sentences and fined 50,000 euros (more than $57,000) each.
