Former pop star Aaron Carter
and ex-NBA standout Lamar Odom
wore headgear during their celebrity boxing
match on Friday, but nothing could shield them from harsh criticism of their performance. (See a clip of their fight below.)
“Like a car crash
, you can't turn away from,” wrote For the Win in USA Today.
Following Logan Paul
's exhibition bout against former boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr.
, in which he lasted all eight rounds, this one was less hyped but possibly more absurd.
Odom, the former Laker who was previously married to Khloé Kardashian, was said to be 10-inches taller than Carter.
It was obvious.

At the Showboat in Atlantic City, New Jersey
, Odom won a technical knockout
in the second round.
I paid $30 for this lmfaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
But the "Aaron's Party" singer, who is Nick Carter
's brother, appeared unfazed by his humiliation.
“I got punched in the throat so hard lol that shit was so much fun!!!! I actually had a blast so y’all can say what you want, but I don’t see you at 6’ fighting a giant. Takes a bow,” he tweeted.
' emotions were also hurt.
Odom has about 10 inches more reach than Carter and weighs about 40 kilos more, so what did we expect? — Jessica Sinclair (@jessie_grimm1) June 13, 2021
