Former pop star Aaron Carter and ex-NBA standout Lamar Odom wore headgear during their celebrity boxing match Friday, but nothing could protect them from harsh reviews of their fight. (See a clip of their bout below.)
But the “Aaron’s Party” singer, who’s the brother of the Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter, seemed unfazed by his resounding defeat.
“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 wrote on Twitter.
Fans’ sensibilities took a beating, too.
Odom’s reach is like, 10 inches more than carter and he outweighs him by like 40 kilos. Sooooo what did we think was going to happen?
