Is it fair to call Lamar Odom vs Aaron Carter a fight? No. Did it technically happen within the bounds of a sport? Sure, why not.
Odom “knocked out” Carter in the second round, putting an end to what would’ve been a physically grueling challenge for the washed up pop star. Carter, a man better known for his accomplishments as a preteen that anything in his adulthood, is the epitome of past his prime.
Yet, people actually paid to watch Carter fight retired NBA player Lamar Odom, who somehow came out of this incident as the least-embarrassed individual in the ring.
Lamar Odom vs Aaron Carter: Size advantage played obvious role
Carter was incredibly confident before the fight, with a quote which perhaps gave Odom just a bit more incentive to end this thing before the third round.
“I just wanna let you guys know that I’m not just a music producer, an entertainer, a singer, a dancer. I’m also a fighter. I grew up street fighting and I’m really looking forward to this match. But my dad always said, ‘the bigger they are the harder they fall.’ So, Lamar, I’ll see you there bro,” Carter said.
Oof. That’s not something you say to someone exactly 60 pounds heavier and probably a foot taller than you.
Carter claiming to have grown up a street fighter is hilarious on its own. The same pretty boy who dated Hillary Duff was out in the alley? Who knew?
The fight was hosted in Atlantic City, which is exactly where I would’ve predicted such a tragedy to take place. I’m surprised the Jersey Shore group wasn’t there in person (were they?).
There’s money to be made in celebrities fighting these days. Typically, it’s tough to watch. And there’s more this weekend.
