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