Odom stops Carter in celebrity boxing match

Two-time NBA champion Lamar Odom showed off his boxing skills on Friday night in an Official Celebrity Boxing event at the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey(Streamed live on Fite.TV) against singer Aaron Carter.

The 6-10, 239-pound Odom used his height to beat up and beat down the 6-0, 175-pound Carter to win by second-round TKO. 

After a flurry by Carter in Round 1, which Odom was able to withstand, the former Laker star took control from there. He would drop Carter in the first and second round before referee, former MMA star Chuck Liddell, put a stop to the action after Carter called it quits in Round 2. 

Odom-Carter was fun for as long as it lasted. While it may not have been very technically sound, fight fans got to see what they love, which are knockdowns and knockouts.

Both Odom and Carter have had their share of issues over the years, so to see both guys in what appears to be a good place is a good thing.
