Mitt Romney is well used to going toe-to-toe with America's political heavyweights, but now he's going to test his mettle against a heavyweight of a more intimidating nature – Evander Holyfield.
The 2012 presidential nominee will fight the 52-year-old former world champion at a charity event at Salt Lake City's Rail Event Center on May 15.
Romney, 68, who recently announced he will not be running for president in 2016, told The Salt Lake Tribune: '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.'
The bizarre bout is taking place to raise money for CharityVision, which provides equipment to doctors in developing countries treating people with curable blindness.
Holyfield famously had part of his ear bitten off in a fight with Mike Tyson in 1997.
It's doubtful Romney will resort to such dirty tactics in May.

It won't be any more real a competition than your average WWE bout. If it was, boxing experience or otherwise, Romney would be finished within 30 seconds by a motivated Holyfield.
