For whatever reason (🤑), celebrity boxing bouts have rapidly become one of the most prominent and visibly marketed sporting events in the world, with previous iterations, such as Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley selling a million and half a million Pay-Per-Views respectively.
Although questions about the sport’s quality going down the drain and the fighters’ lack of integrity have been raised, the numbers speak for themselves, and something about two celebrities going at each other seems to garner a lot of interest from casual boxing fans.
Hence next on the list is NBA’s 1999 fourth-round draft pick and 2-time champion Lamar Odom (41) going up against Cuban actor, producer and personal trainer Ojani Noa (47), who interestingly enough, also happens to be Jennifer Lopez’s first husband.
