Lamar Odom is set to fight Aaron Carter in a celebrity boxing match in June.

The 41-year-old former NBA player has agreed to fight the 33-year-old singer at the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City on June 12.

A three round exhibition will take place, and according to Celebrity Boxing show-runner Damon Feldman, “It’s gonna be a war, man. It’s gonna be a knockout, no doubt.”

Comparing the two, Odom is 6ft 10″ with a 14 season professional sporting career under his belt, and Carter standing at 6ft 1″ — with no sporting career to date. Both suffered with addition over the years, with Lamar suffering from multiple strokes and heart attacks following an overdose at a Nevada brothel in 2015.

Aaron has battled with addition, and openly admits he suffers from a series of mental health issues including bipolar disorder, but in 2017 received treatment for drugs.
