Lamar Odom Accepts Challenge to Fight Fake Drake for $1 Million

The former NBA forward stepped in for Aubrey Graham to throw some hands in a friendly boxing match.

Fake Drake doesn’t have to look for a challenger anymore, as Lamar Odom, the former Los Angeles Laker forward, has agreed to fight him in place of the real Drake for $1 million.

In a news brief from Complex (per TMZ), Damon Feldman of Celebrity Boxing has confirmed that Odom has agreed to fight to faux rap impersonator in a friendly match. 

Odom has already participated in a notable Celeb Boxing match when he knocked out former child pop star Aaron Carter in the second round of their match last year.

“I hear this news that this fake lookalike wanna fight my man Drake,” said Odom in a video announcing the fight. “But my man doesn’t really get his hands dirty, so what I’m gonna step in the way and take that fight. Get the contract, lay you right down.”

Scheduled for this fall, October 15, in either Atlantic City or Miami, Odom appears to dislike the idea of Fake Drake demanding to real Drake. “It’s your boy Izzy Drake, OVO tings, you already know we outside. I just signed with Celebrity Boxing,” Fake Drake said in the video in which he challenged Drizzy

“August 27th, I’m calling Drake out for a friendly boxing match. If I win, you gotta sign me to OVO you gotta give me a million dollars. If you win, I’ll change my name. It’s an OVO ting, you already know.”

Fake Drake aka Izzy Drake was banned from Instagram earlier this month for impersonating the rapper.
