Lamar Odom to Box Jennifer Lopez’s Ex-husband Ojani Noa 

Published 10/02/2021, 5:27 PM EDT


What really set celebrity boxing off into the mainstream was when Logan Paul fought boxing’s ‘Pretty Boy’, Floyd Mayweather. Once the true potential of such boxing bouts became known to everyone, the sport saw a sudden surge in similar events. It has now come to a point where NBA veteran Lamar Odom is all set to fight Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband, actor, and musician Ojani Noa.

Initially, Odom was paired up with former undisputed heavyweight world champion Riddick Bowe. However, training clips of the 54-year-old surfaced on the web and caused a huge public outcry to call the fight off.

The authorities did not permit Riddick Bowe to compete in the event. Later, Ojani Noa stepped in as a replacement for Lamar Odom.

The two are scheduled to fight at the James L. Knight Center in Miami, Florida on Saturday, October 2.

If Lamar Odom can keep up his winning streak, fans could possibly even see him fight on a Triller event or possibly even on the undercard of either Logan Paul or Jake Paul.
