Celebrity boxing matches are now more popular than ever before, with notable matches such as Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather coming to mind. Rapper Aaron Carter and ex-NBA star Lamar Odom did just that last month as well.
The two squared off against each other on June 11 in an exhibition match at the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City, where Lamar Odom made short work of Aaron Carter after beating him in the second round.
Since then fans have been wondering whether Lamar Odom will box again. Odom was set to square off against former heavyweight champ Riddick Bowe on October 2nd.
However, due to Evander Holyfield’s performance in his boxing match against Vitor Belfort, everyone from Celebrity Boxing to the Florida state athletic commission thought it best to remove Riddick Bowe from the match.
According to TMZ Sports, Lamar Odom will now be squaring off against Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband Ojani Noa. For those who don’t know, Noa was married to Lopez from 1997 to 1998.
Odom and Ojani will be duking it out at the James L. Knight Center in Miami, Florida on October 2nd as part of the Celebrity Boxing card. We will have to wait and see how will come out on top.
