Former NBA player Lamar Odom knocked out singer Aaron Carter during their celebrity boxing match on June 11, according to TMZ Sports. The celebrity boxing match was held in Atlantic City, New Jersey at the Showboat Hotel.
The “I Want Candy” singer landed several hits against his much taller opponent with what looked like a little help from Odom.
Carter, who is 6’0″, looked like a pipsqueak next to the very tall Odom, who is 6’10” and towered over Carter in the boxing ring. The two men danced around the ring for two rounds before the former NBA player ended Carter with the knockout.
Actor and rapper ICE-T and his wife Coco added to the evening by hosting the boxing match, along with boxer Paulie Malignaggi. The sold-out pay-per-view fight cost viewers $29.99.
Twitter users had fun with the boxing match and blessed us with their usual panache.

Lamar Odom vs Aaron Cater has to be personal, because it’s WAY too random of a matchup. Shit, Lamar prob heard “I want Candy” recently & asked for Aaron Carter. Lol https://t.co/XEMSxyhDA2

Odom and Carter hugged it out after the knockout and it appeared that there were no hard feelings. Odom said he wasn’t opposed to another celebrity boxing match, if the pay was good enough.
