Katie and LL Cool J Get Punchy!

Katie's Take
Katie and LL Cool J Get Punchy!

Katie invited rapper-turned actor LL Cool J on the show to discuss the “A” Game Challenge – a partnership between his charity “Jump and Ball” and ACE Brand. The challenge is a nationwide contest that allows sport fans and young athletes to submit videos of their “A” game moments.

Katie had her own challenge for LL Cool J – it involved a punching bag machine -- and it's not going to be easy.

"I don't know if you've seen my guns," Katie said.

"I have. They're locked and loaded," replied LL Cool J.

Katie also brought out 16-year-old pinch boxer Shakur Stevenson to level the playing field.

We wouldn't exactly say level the playing field, as Stevenson has been boxing since age 5. He also recently won gold in the Junior World Championship at the Kiev Palace of Sports.

So how did it all go down?

First up, LL Cool J with a score of 398, then 672.

When Shakur’s turn came up – he scored a 690 and then 694.

"I may be a girl, but I'm gonna try this too!" Katie yelled.

Katie scored a 5 and with final score of 26.

Shakur ultimately won and went home with a sweet pair of Beats by Dre headsets -- to listen to old-school LL Cool J, of course.
