On Friday, May 15, in a “fight” for charity, Mitt Romney hopped into the ring against former heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield.
The 2012 Republican presidential nominee stuck it out for nearly three rounds before giving up to the former champ.
The 68-year-old Romney and 52-year-old Holyfield barely threw any punches in the Salt Lake City event, mostly dancing around each other and lightly jabbing in what AP unsurprisingly described as “much more of a comedic event than an actual bout.”
Money was raised for CharityVision, which helps doctors in developing countries perform surgeries to restore vision in people with curable blindness. Romney’s son Josh is a volunteer president for the organization.
