Regardless of that, Odom has a date for his subsequent battle, which can happen Oct. 10.
Odom does not have a lot expertise as a boxer. He did win his solely bout, taking down pop star Aaron Carter in a “battle” that did not look something near skilled degree. Odom inked his subsequent battle cope with Celeb Boxing, that means he’ll doubtless tackle the identical high quality of opponent in his second battle.
Celebrities proceed to invade boxing
Odom and Carter are only one instance of celebrities and YouTube stars taking up the boxing world. Jake and Logan Paul proceed to make headlines in that area. Whereas the standard of their fights are greater than what Odom and Carter offered, consultants have not been impressed with what the Paul brothers carry within the ring.
Exterior the ring is a distinct story, the place the Pauls use their YouTube clout to make headlines. The Pauls have challenged a few of the largest names in combined martial arts in hopes of advancing their careers. They have been pretty profitable in that space, as Ben Askren and Floyd Mayweather have taken fights with the Paul brothers. Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley will face Jake Paul in August.

Till that stops being the case, celebrities will proceed to dabble in boxing, no matter whether or not they really know easy methods to battle.
