Mitt Romney is going to take a beating.
No, he’s not running for president again, but rather the former Massachusetts governor is set to go head-to-head with Evander Holyfield in a charity boxing event. The Salt Lake Tribune reported that the event will take place in Salt Lake City on May 15.
“It will either be a very short fight, or I will be knocked unconscious,” Romney said. “It won’t be much of a fight. We’ll both suit up and get in the ring and spar around a little bit.”
The 68-year-old politician will be at an obvious disadvantage against the five-time world heavyweight champion, but the event will benefit Charity Vision, a humanitarian organization that donates medical equipment to countries in need.
Romney also assured that there will be actual fights, and not just the one between himself and Holyfield, which likely won’t last very long.
“We just thought it would be a lot better to provide this kind of entertainment rather than just have dinner and listen to speakers,” Romney said.
