We knew Odom was going to take a fight this summer, and we now know who it’ll be against. I’m honestly a bit surprised he’s being allowed to fight Aaron Carter.

According to TMZ’s report, Carter is barely over six feet tall. Lamar Odom, who won two NBA titles with the Lakers, is in the 6’10” range. Seeing as how height matters in boxing, I’m not sure how fair of a fight this will be.

In fact, I’m not sure this fight will be close at all. I don’t know if there will be gambling odds out by June 12, but I’d bet everything I have that Odom cleans his clock.

He’s a former pro athlete, is substantially taller and has a much longer reach. I see nothing to convince me that Aaron Carter stands a chance.

I guess we’ll find out in a few months, but I’m all in on Odom walking out of the ring with a win.
