Is the Stormin’ Mormon any match for the Real Deal?
Political heavyweight Mitt Romney, 68, will face off against five-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, 52, on Friday night in Salt Lake City.
The mismatched contenders are trading blows to raise money for CharityVision, a Utah-based nonprofit dedicated to providing medical equipment, vision screenings, clinics and sight-restoration surgeries in developing countries.
It is set to begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Rail Event Center following several fights featuring professional boxers, including Leon Spinks III and Wes Capper.
On Thursday night, all of the fighters — including Romney and Holyfield — participated in an official weigh-in at Xcel Fitness in Holladay.
Yahoo global news anchor Katie Couric discussed the upcoming match with Romney during a recent interview.
“Some people think this is fun to watch,” he joked. “I think there will be a lot of Democrats there paying good money to see me get beaten up.” (Michael Walsh/Yahoo News)
