Mitt Romney lost his bid for president in 2012, but he hopes to change his luck in the ring.

Nick Schwartz of USA Today reported late Monday that the former Governor of Massachusetts will fight former world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield on May 15 in Salt Lake City.

He’s not doing it as some type of mid-life crisis. Proceeds from the charity bout will go to CharityVision, a charity that helps people with sight impairment.

Romney spoke to Paul Rolly of The Salt Lake Tribune about the fight.

“It will either be a very short fight, or I will be knocked unconscious. It won’t be much of a fight. We’ll both suit up and get in the ring and spar around a little bit.”

This sounds like Celebrity Death Match.
