Yes, that is former presidential candidate (in great shape at 68) Mitt Romney in the ring with five-time heavyweight boxing champion (and ear donor) Evander Holyfield in the boxing ring.  And you know what, it had just as much action as the Mayweather-Pacquaio fight.

Yes, the action was light as these two danced around the ring in Salt Lake City Friday night, but it was for a good cause.  The event raised money for the Utah-based CharityVision.  They are an organization dedicated to assisting doctors in developing countries to restore vision in cases of curable blindness.

The event apparently raised over $1 million according to Mitt Romney’s twitter:

Tonight, raised $1 million dollars, which will help 40,000 people have their sight restored.
