In the boxing world, you may be looking for a fighter named Michahel Lohan. Sad to say folks, familiar as the name would be, you will not find it. Michael Lohan is the estranged father of diva Lindsay Lohan and he shall be fighting for a charitable cause.
It all started in October 6 where Lohan made it public that he would box the highest bidder. The initial bid was set at $5,000. Lohan had also initially wanted to fight off some known names in the industry including Kevin Federline and Perez Hilton but to no avail. Eventually it all came down to a local businessman, Robert Venero who had thrown $20,000 in the pot to fight Lohan. The match is scheduled on November 24 at the Hilton Long Island. Stephen Baldwin has agreed to judge the match. Proceeds of the match will go to the Long Island charities which really sponsors annual slugfests for a cause.
Lohan has had a history of being used to fights. Being jailed before, he does seem like a dangerous opponent. But on the issue of why Venero really wants to fight Lohan is another. Is it really for charity or another cause?
Whatever the reason is, it is the money for charity that is important. These two are taking the fight seriously and from all indications, it will truly give the word “slugfest” something to watch.
“It’s going to be war,” he said. “Michael Lohan is not going down without a struggle and Bob Venero is not paying $20,000 to get humiliated. They both will be swinging for the fences.”
