Mitt Romney To Box Evander Holyfield In Charity Match

Yes you read that right.

In this corner, weighing in at 236 pounds: Evander Holyfield, the former heavyweight champion of the world.

And in this corner, weighing in at 179 pounds — Mitt Romney? The former Republican presidential nominee?

Relax. It's for a good cause: They're stepping into the ring Friday night in Salt Lake City to raise money for Charity Vision, which fights blindness in some of the poorest countries in the world.

"You've heard my critics say that I'm out of touch. That I'm stiff. That I just don't relate to people," Romney deadpans in a promotional video. "For years I've been listening to garbage like that. And I've decided to fight back."
