Celebrity pugilism hasactually made headings in current years, with lotsof crediting the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. exhibit, and the arrival of the Paul Brothers, for its expansion and revival.

But most puton’t understand that Damon Feldman veryfirst promoted the principle eighteen years back. Michael Woods of The Ring stated in June 2021 that “he [Damon Feldman] needto mostlikely get credit for being the most impassioned motorist of the idea in the world.”

According to Feldman, celeb boxing isn’t a ploy, it’s an chance for redemption.

Feldman, who established Official Celebrity Boxing, is siblings with David Feldman, who established Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. Their daddy, Marty Feldman, a previous expert fighter, was inducted into the Pennsylvania Boxing Hall of Fame in 2006.

Last June, Feldman managed a match inbetween previous NBA star Lamar Odom and 90’s pop-star Aaron Carter, and in years previous, setup matches including Coolio, Rodney King, Jose Canseco, “Octomon,” and others.

Although Feldman and the principle of celeb boxing get slammed, Feldman views it inadifferentway. “People chuckled at it years back. [But critics miss] what can stem from this. Those coupleof minutes in the ring might provide them the self-confidence to relocation forward in other parts of their life, to modification their life,” Feldman stated.

Feldman and his organization partner Rodney Burton think in the redemptive nature of the promo duetothefactthat it’s what they lookedfor throughout their low points in life.

Burton invested 5 years in jail for drug dealing. “No one desired to provide me a task or aid me since of what I went through,” Burton stated. Meanwhile, Feldman fought alcohol dependency for years and invested 13 months in jail for attack in 2016.

“I saw a photo of my child having supper, and I broke down,” Feldman stated. “I hoped to God and stated I’ll neverever beverage onceagain.” Feldman hasn’t had a beverage consideringthat, he informed me.
