Mitt Romney Throws In The Towel In Boxing Match Against Evander Holyfield

Evander Holyfield has embarrassed himself in a variety of ways over his career as a boxer and washed-up celebrity, but this is a new low.


Call it the Quake on the Lake.

Hopping around shirtless in a pair of red silk trunks, former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney faced off against five-time world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield for a boxing match in Salt Lake City on Friday.

Few would have predicted the spectacle three years ago, when Romney was looking more presidential and his opponent was President Barack Obama.

The bout raised money for CharityVision, an organization that provides surgeries to heal blindness.

For two rounds, Romney, 68, and Holyfield, 52, went head-to-head, each landing gentle blows that appeared more like a tickle fight than a boxing match. Although Holyfield took a tumble on the mat, Romney threw in the towel in the second round.

That’s right. Mitt Romney “knocked down” the heavyweight boxing champ.

The fight began with Money Makin’ Mitt basically throwing hi-5’s at Earless Evander Holyfield.
