It hasn’t been a particularly good time for Lamar Odom over the last few weeks. Followers of the Kar-Jenner clan know that Lamar and Sabrina Parr broke up last year only to reconcile their romance one more time before finally calling it off for good again just a month or two later.
The news came as a bit of a surprise considering the news reports about their relationship always seemed so positive with a couple of small exceptions. Before then, Lamar was married to Khloe Kardashian.
Aaron Carter, as well, has endured his own controversies in the media as well, including for car crashes, drug addiction, therapy, rehab, and also family drama with his older brother, Nick, a member of the Backstreet Boys.
Fast forward to today, and celebrity boxing matches à la Celebrity Deathmatch (without dying) are now a real thing. With performers and entertainers being out of work, celebrities are hopping into the ring including Lamar and Aaron. Hot New Hip Hop says the trend probably started due to the Paul brothers.
According to the outlet, just a few days ago boxing promoters announced that Carter and Lamar would be fighting in Atlantic City on the 12th of June. The pair of men got on TMZ Sports recently where they briefly engaged in a trash-talking back-and-forth to promote their fight.
Odom told Aaron that he was going to have a great time getting knocked out. Odom admitted during the interview that he has been interested in boxing for a long time, even before he got into the NBA. It’s in his blood.
Odom went on to say that he was looking forward to showing off his practicing and training on Aaron’s “face,” and it would be “retribution for Nate Robinson.” “This is gonna be easy work,” Lamar explained.
Lamar was obviously referring to the way Mr. Robinson got knocked out by one of the Paul brothers in recent news. It was especially humiliating for Nate considering his history as an athlete compared to Paul, who, despite his talent, came up as a YouTuber and a social media personality and not in athletics.
