Must read


Former basketball player Lamar Odom takes on a new challenge as he prepares to face singer-songwriter Aaron Carter in a boxing match. The two are already training for the fight which will be a competition of three rounds of one and a half minutes each.

TMZ Sports first reported on the game, which will take place on June 12, 2021, at the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City. They spoke with famous boxing matchmaker Damon Feldman, who first revealed the opponent Lamar Odom will be faced in June. He claimed the match could be one of the greatest celebrity fights of all time.

“It’s gonna be a showdown, man. They’re both fighters. Aaron has boxing experience. Lamar is an athlete. He has the potential to be one of the biggest celebrity fights of the big time. … It’s gonna be a war, man. It’s gonna be a knockout, for sure. “

The former NBA star played for several teams throughout his 14-season career from 1999 to 2013. He was a member of the Los Angeles Lakers team that won the championship in 2009 and 2010.

Aaron Carter rose to fame as a popstar in the late 1990s and went on to become a popular rapper, singer, actor, and producer in the music world.

Aaron Carter: It’s like David and Goliath

Speaking to TMZ Sports, Aaron Carter stressed that despite the obvious height difference between himself and his opponent, he shouldn’t be seen as the underdog as he grew up fighting on the streets.

“It’s a crazy match. It’s like David and Goliath. He’s six feet tall, I’m six feet tall, it’s going to be a little crazy. I’m really looking forward to this fight. I want to just let you guys know that I’m not just a music producer, artist, singer, dancer … I’m also a fighter. I grew up in street fighting. I can’t wait to see this game. My dad always said, the bigger they are, the more they fight. So, Lamar, see you soon, brother. “

However, Carter is probably surprised because Lamar Odom is not 6ft 7in, but 6ft 10in and his last listed weight was 230 pounds. Aaron Carter, meanwhile, is 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 185 pounds.
