In what's being dubbed "The Olympian vs. The Man Who Saved the Olympics," former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, 52, will be taking on former Olympics CEO (and 2012 GOP presidential nominee) Mitt Romney, 68, in a charity match May 15 at the Union Pacific Depot in Salt Lake City.
In a story originally broken by the Salt Lake Tribune, the 68 year-old Romney was quoted as saying, "It will either be a very short fight, or I will be knocked unconscious," adding, "It won't be much of a fight. We'll both suit up and get in the ring and spar around a little bit."
Tough to say who has the edge in this one. But U-Turn will go with Romney. Holyfield may have a difficult time defeating the first-time boxer whose stances are rumored to be all over the place.
