Aaron Carter, Lamar Odom to face off in celebrity boxing match

Retired NBA star Lamar Odom and former popstar Aaron Carter are set to face-off in a celebrity boxing match this summer, according to a report.

Celebrity Boxing CEO Damon Feldman told TMZ Sports the three-round exhibition will take place at the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey on June 12.

Odom, 41, and Carter, 33, have already started training in the gym for the big event, according to the outlet.

Odom, who played 14 seasons with the NBA, stands tall at 6’10” while Carter is 6’1″.

Despite the height difference, Carter says he is “excited” to face Odom in the ring.

“This is a crazy match up. It’s like David and Goliath,” Carter told TMZ. “I’m really looking forward to this fight.”

The “I Want Candy” singer added that he might have a bit of an advantage because he “grew up street fighting.”

Feldman agreed the fight was going to be epic.

“It’s gonna be a war, man,” he said. “It’s gonna be a knockout, no doubt.”
