HipHollywood has learned that viral video star Antoine Dodson will be making his way into the boxing ring for a celebrity boxing match. There’s just one issue: he needs an opponent.
“He is up to any challenge and is in boxing training for this,” the fight’s promoter Damon Feldman tells HipHollywood exclusively. “He has a passion for boxing. Something he always wanted to do and now I’m giving him that chance.”
We’re told that YouTube sensation IceJJFish is being considered for the match. Whoever steps into the ring to face Dodson will get $1,000. The live event will air on Sunday, November 2 on Internet Pay-Per-View website, filmon.com.
Dodson became a huge Internet star back in 2010 after colorfully warning his neighbor to hide their kids and wives from a local rapist. The Alabama resident, who was gay at the height of his celebrity, has since denounced his homosexuality and become a father. HipHollywood caught up with the star before the birth of his son to talk about how thrilled he was to be a dad. “I’m pretty excited about that, yet I’m still numb, I can’t believe this,” he told us.
