Well, she'll be doing some celebrity boxing in South Florida, and Shaq will be the corner man, and, pending negotiations, I might fight in the undercard bout against Ozzie Canseco, former baseball slugger Jose's twin brother!
This is crazy!
At 4:37 Monday afternoon, I received a press release from Damon Feldman, the CEO of Celebrity Boxing, stating that on April 22, Hoopz will travel to South Florida to fight... somebody. It's undecided. Could it be you?
(Probably not, unless you're Tiger Woods's mistress or something.)
Here is an EXCLUSIVE quote from the press release:
Hoopz has signed a contract to do her first Celebrity Boxing match and Celebrity Boxing CEO Damon Feldman says we are very excited to have Nicole on board and this will be great.
Yes, it will! At 11:29 yesterday morning, after I congratulated Damon via email for the "celebrity snag," he wrote back:
thatnx, also how about u do fun match with ozzie canseco? call me
I then called him, but he didn't pick up.
Damon has a long history of putting weird celebrities in the ring together, making full use of Ozzie Canseco, AND almost getting me in the ring to box celebrities.
Damon had Danny Bonaduce fight Jose Canseco. He had Tonya Harding fight a Philly waitress. He had Lindsay Lohan's dad Michael fight Jose Canseco, but it turned out to be Ozzie Canseco. There was a lawsuit and everything.
And he had me fight Michael Lohan, but then it never happened.
Stay tuned for EXCLUSIVE news concerning Hoopz, Ozzie Canseco, and me, and this will be great.
