TKO Boxing and PR Entertainment Inc., brought a night of boxing to the Commerce Casino Tuesday night. This was not your ordinary fight card since this event included some celebrities such as Rob, Khloe and Kim Kardashian, along with Bruce Jenner and Scott Disick.
The celebrity boxing charity was to raise money for the Dream Foundation, not only was this to raise funds but it was also taped for their popular reality show “Keeping up with the Kardashians” on the E! Network.
As I sit at ringside and watch Rob Kardashian walk to the ring to start the event, when you think about any type of charity events, one assumes everything its played out and the challengers will go easy on the celebrities as this is for a good cause, well was I wrong.
James Taylor, a former trained fighter, was the highest bidder for the chance to step in the ring with Rob. As he stood in front of me, he was huffing and puffing like a bull as he looked at Rob Kardashian with anger.
Within seconds of the bell ringing, he fires an over hand right that sends Rob flying out the ropes into my lap. At this point every one realizes that Taylor wanted to seriously hurt the Kardashian. Security and the whole E! Staff is yelling to stop the fight. Kim and her sister rushed to the ring as we helped Rob get back in the ring. He continued to get a beat down from his over sized bully.
Immediately, the event was stopped and all the Kardashians were rushed to the locker rooms. After hours of back and forth negotiations to get the Kardashians back in the ring, Bruce Jenner and Kim Kardashian finally decided to come out and fight there opponents by midnight. It looked like they were playing patty cake, but overall it was fun to see Kim Kardashian in a boxing ring for a good cause.
