Celebrity boxing promoter tries to get Cameron Diaz in the ring

Also, Audrina Patridge takes a "1st Look" at Philly.

CELEB-BOXING promoter Damon Feldman chatted it up with Howard Stern last week about his next scheduled fight with Patricia "Tan Mom" Krentcil. While in the studio, he ran into A-lister Cameron Diaz promoting her new flick "The Other Woman," co-starring Kate Upton and Leslie Mann.

So, what' s a celeb boxing promoter to do? Ask Diaz if she wants to fight Krentcil.

Diaz, to say the least, was not thrilled about Feldman's request.

Hear Feldman on Stern tomorrow.
