According to TMZ, the upcoming head-to-head is set to be held at the James L. Knight Center on October 2nd.
The 41-year-old former professional basketball player was previously set to take on a former heavyweight boxing champion until the fight card was changed at the last minute.
Odom might be nice on the court but let’s see what he can bring to the ring.
The bout will take place at the James L. Knight Arena in Miami and will go out live on Fite TV.
Lamar Odom getting back into the celebrity boxing ring.The former NBA champion is currently scheduled to fight Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband, Ojani Noa, in a celebrity boxing match. According to TMZ, the fight is set to be held at the James L. Knight Center in Miami on October 2nd. The 41-year-old former Los Angeles Lakers All-Star was previously set to take on former heavyweight boxing champion Riddick Bowe.
“TMZ Sports has learned 47-year-old Ojani Noa has agreed to fight the 41-year-old ex-hooper on October 2 at the James L. Knight Center in Miami, FL … all part of a Celebrity Boxing card.
If you don’t remember Noa, a former server, he was married to Lopez from 1997 to 1998 … before they split.”
Odom’s last fight was against Aaron Carter, who he beat in a 2nd round TKO.
Noa, 47, was romantically involved with Lopez from 1997 until 1998 when the pair decided to end their marriage.
Following the couple’s split, the former waiter attempted to publish a book about their marriage, although the hitmaker sued him, alleging that they had previously agreed not to share any details about their relationship.
Of course, Odom, the 2x NBA champ, was married to Khloe Kardashian from 2009 to 2016.
Odom — who beat pop star Aaron Carter via 2nd round TKO in June — was originally scheduled to fight former heavyweight boxing champ, Bowe.
However, after 58-year-old Evander Holyfield recently lost to Vitor Belfort … and didn’t look great in the ring, everyone from Celebrity Boxing to the Florida state athletic commission thought it best to remove him from the match.
