Remembering When Kim Kardashian Had A Boxing Fight For Charity

Remembering When Kim Kardashian Had A Boxing Fight For Charity

When talking about the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, the likes of Vasyl Lomachenko, Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Oleksandr Usyk are right in the conversation.

But how can one overlook the mercurial talents of Kim Kardashian, who stepped inside the squared circle ten years ago?

The reality mega-star, who has 152 million followers on Instagram, put on the gloves back in 2009 for a charity boxing event called 'the Kardashian Charity Knockout' at Commerce Casino.

The night's entertainment saw budding boxers bid to face members of the Kardashian clan, with funds raised for Dream Foundation as a result.

Kim's brother Rob was in action earlier on the card and ended up in hospital after suffering a concussion in his defeat, while Bruce Jenner's sporting background came in handy and saw the Olympic gold medalist pick up the win.

Then it was Kim's turn and unfortunately she wasn't able to put another W back on the board for her family. To be fair, she gave it a good go despite clearly not having the technique for it but was on the receiving end of some brutal shots from her opponent, Tamara.

Her mum Kris and sister Khloe were very concerned as they looked on ringside, though stepfather Bruce Jenner was in absolute hysterics.

It's just a shame it happened before she got together with Kanye because he would have definitely jumped in the ring.

Kim ended up with a nasty shiner from a huge right hand she took but she was willing to accept that as the event was a huge success, raising $11,000 for charity.

"It was absolutely insane [but] at the end of the day, we did this for charity and that's what counts," Kim reflected in her blog, as per E Online.

"Rob is doing fine now and my black eye will be gone soon...I hope. You can try to bring the Kardashians down...but we're a strong family."

Forget KSI and Logan Paul, this is the biggest celebrity boxing bout to have ever taken place.
