And the winner is....Not Aaron Carter. Former NBA star and Khloe Kardashian's ex-husband, Lamar Odom gave the over-matched Carter the fight of his life in their highly anticipated celebrity boxing match at the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City on Friday evening.
It appears that Carter, 6'0", had over zealous dreams to topple the 6'10" Odom as the former pop star came out in the opening round with a flurry of wild punches. An early knock out for Carter was not in the cards. Odom, 41, withstood the barrage and quickly turned the tables on his much shorter opponent.
It didn't take long for fans to realize that Carter, 33, was in trouble. The ex-hoops star served the brother of former Backstreet Boy singer Nick Carter with a series of devastating blows that sent Carter stumbling into the ropes.
Odom's height and considerable arm reach overwhelmed Carter for two whole rounds, meanwhile, Carter seemed to be wishing he were anywhere but in the ring. Thankfully, there would be no third round.
Though Odom promised TMZ before the fight that he planned on putting Carter 'to sleep', the other man mercifully went down with only 30 second left in the second round.
Celebrity referee and former UFC great Chuck Liddell kept his word and let the pair go toe to toe with little interference. However, Liddell finally waved his arms and ended Carter's nightmare after the reality star feebly stumbled and tripped to his corner and refused to get back on his feet. Paulie Malignaggi, rapper Ice T and his wife Coco served as the night's MC's.
Despite the brutality inside the ropes, the two celeb fighters didn't hold any grudges. It was all love and hugs between the singer and the two-time NBA championship winner after the fight was over.
