Tonight, Mitt Romney Fights Evander Holyfield. Really.

Former Massachusetts governor and presidential candidate Mitt Romney will fight heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield tonight, according, in part, to the world’s softest looking pre-fight photo.The charity boxing match will raise funds for CharityVision, an organization that provides sight restoration surgery those in poor countries. Romney kind of explained his fight strategy to The New York Times:

“I think just the embarrassment of having everybody looking and laughing. I do remember Newt Gingrich and I, during a debate, we were talking about Rick Perry. And Newt Gingrich said to me, ‘You know, Rick is a good guy, but he doesn’t know how to dance.’ Newt meant dance around tough questions and then make them work to your advantage. And he complimented me on my ability to dance. So I will be doing a bit of dancing and dodging Friday night.”
