Mitt Romney faces Evander Holyfield in charity fight

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney entered the ring with former heavyweight boxing champ Evander Holyfield on Friday night for a charity match.

Mitt Romney and Evander Holyfield pretended to throw some light punches for several minutes before Romney's corner threw in the towel and the two hugged.

The event was billed as the first CharityVision Fight Night and was expected to raise more than $1 million to provide surgeries for the blind and medical supplies to people living in poverty around the world.
