Two-time NBA champion, Lamar Odom, signed a deal with Celebrity Boxing. According to TMZ, Odom will have his first fight at Showboat Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on June 12. At the moment, Odom doesn’t have an opponent.
Odom spent seven years playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, where he won the Sixth Man of the Year Award in 2010-2011.
Odom isn’t the first basketball star to hit the ring. Nate Robinson fought against YouTuber Jake Paul in November and lost after suffering a knockout in the second round.
