Lamar Odom vs Aaron Carter Preview
Odom, a 14-year NBA veteran, and Carter, an ex-pop star, will make their respective Celebrity Boxing debuts in what should be an entertaining fight.
The 41-year-old retired hoopster and the 33-year-old former teen idol have both battled addiction in the recent past, and both have come out on the other side. Carter, younger brother of Backstreet Boys member Nick, gained fame as the singer behind singles like “I Want Candy” and “That’s How I Beat Shaq,” and he has been boxing longer than Odom, but neither has fought anyone until now.
For his part, Odom has vowed not to lose to Carter the same way his friend and fellow former NBA player Nate Robinson’s lost to YouTube celebrity Jake Paul last fall.
“I’ve always boxed. In my best years with the Lakers, I used boxing for training, and so for me to go and show what I’ve learned on my man’s face, this is like retribution for Nate Robinson. This is gonna be easy work,” Odom said about boxing as an undertaking.
Carter says he won’t be such an easy KO.
“This is a crazy matchup. It’s like David and Goliath. He is 6 ft. 7, I am 6 ft. 1, it’s gonna be kind of crazy. I am really looking forward to this fight. I just want to let you guys know that I am not just a music producer, an entertainer, a singer, a dancer… I am also a fighter. I grew up street fighting. I am really looking forward to this match. My dad always said, the bigger they are, the harder they fight. So, Lamar, see you there bro,” Carter said, via Sportskeeda.
Odom is actually 6 foot 10; Carter is 6 foot 1, so there is a glaring height advantage. Celebrity Boxing CEO Damon Feldman thinks that, differences or not, this bout will be fun to watch, and he says both fighters may surprise some people.
“It’s gonna be a war, man. It’s gonna be a knockout, there’s no doubt,” Feldman said about the fight. When asked specifically about Odom, he added: “Well, after seeing him training, he was training down there with the same guy that trains Kevin Hart, and he was training good. … His comeback is gonna be phenomenal, and same with Aaron Carter.”
Here’s a look at the fight card:
