Lamar Odom knocks Aaron Carter out in the second round of their celebrity boxing match

Aaron Carter came to fight. Lamar Odom simply overpowered him.

The former two-time NBA champion dropped the singer/songwriter twice, before securing a second-round knockout in their ridiculous celebrity boxing match Friday night at the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Despite giving up 10 inches in height, 64.5 pounds and 11 inches in reach to Odom, Carter enjoyed early success with a barrage of lefts and rights that connected to his taller, larger opponent's head in the opening round. However, Odom got his bearings, went to the outside and placed a right jab-left hook combination, which dropped Carter. The pop star of the 90s didn't have his legs under him and wisely held on to survive the round.

But he wouldn't make it against Odom much longer. The second round had Odom spinning Carter around and around, before delivering several unanswered lefts to drop the singer once again. Special guest referee Chuck Liddell began counting, as Carter indicated that he was no longer fit to continue.

"Like a f—ing train," Carter said live on the pay-per-view in describing what it felt like to be hit by Odom. "He hits like a mule."

Carter is fortunate to not leave the ring seriously hurt, as giving up nearly 65 pounds in a fight is a huge deal and something that organizers should be leery about with these celebrity boxing bouts in the future.

Liddell calls time and is giving Carter a quick warning. Repeated, unanswered lefts drop Carter yet again. He's shaking his head 'no' on one knee as Liddell counts.
