Mitt Romney is trading the political arena for the boxing ring.
The former Massachusetts governor and 2012 presidential hopeful is duking it out against heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield in a charity boxing match in Salt Lake City, Romney told The Salt Lake Tribune. The match will take place May 15.
That gives Romney a couple months to sharpen his footwork and boxing skills.
"It will either be a very short fight, or I will be knocked unconscious," he told The Tribune. "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 event will raise money for Charity Vision, a humanitarian organization aimed at providing physicians to developing countries to specifically establish care for blindness.
The fundraising event is intended to attract corporate sponsorships and will run between $250,000 and $25,000, Josh Romney told The Tribune. It will be a black-tie event with hors d’oeuvres.
