    Former Massachusetts Governor and two-time presidential candidate Mitt Romney (L) and five-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield stare down during their weigh-in before their boxing match in Holladay, Utah May 14, 2015. The two will box on Friday to benefit the medical charity CharityVision. Jim Urquhart/Reuters

    On Friday night at 6:30 local time in Salt Lake City, Utah, Mitty Romney will step into the ring with Evander Holyfield. By 6:31, he will probably have been punched in the face by the former heavyweight champion.

    And it’s all for a good cause: The boxing match is a fundraiser for Charity Vision, a nonprofit organization that provides eye exams, glasses, surgeries and eye-care clinics for those with impaired vision. The match, billed as a “world-class, black-tie event,” will also include four undercards; it has a 1920s theme, and TV personality Mario Lopez will be emceeing the whole to do.

    Unlike a real boxing match, there are only three scheduled rounds--that is, if Romney lasts that long. The former presidential hopeful has never boxed before. He plans to arrive in a tuxedo and then change into a red silk robe and red silk shorts. Because if he’s going to take some hits, might as well do it in style.

    Romney throws softer punches in the ring than he does in his campaigns

    I have met Romney in person. I don't agree with all of his politics, but he is an extremely decent person. Its interesting to see that libs will tear Romney down and give charlatans like Clinton a pass because 'he feels your pain.'

    You can't argue with ignorance & hypocrites Tiggs. I'm sure most the people that rip on Romney but love the Clinton's are probably posting to the shed from their parents basement or in a shitty apartment and receiving some type of government assitance.

    He is a good sport for doing this. I wonder if Holyfield will give him a good shot....

    I hope Mitt bites Evander's good ear if he starts to lose. Either way, they better be careful, Apollo Creed died in a fight like this.

    I'm liberal but Romney does seem decent most Mormons seem to be. Aside from the wacky religious beliefs

    If I can't be president of the united states, fuck it, I'll be a douchebag for a paycheck. It's all showbiz after all. Vote for me, or whoever the next asshole is. Does it even matter anymore?
