RHONJ's Joe Giudice 'to fight JLo's ex Ojani Noa' in boxing match after bragging he could take on Mike Tyson
REAL Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice is set "to fight JLo's ex Ojani Noa" in his upcoming celebrity boxing match in October.
The 49-year-old previously bragged that not only could he take on a celebrity but he could fight former professional boxer Mike Tyson, who once reigned as the undisputed world heavyweight champion.
Although he won't be facing off against Tyson, Joe is set to spar against Jennifer Lopez's ex husband Ojani, who describes himself on Instagram as an actor, model, TV host, producer, writer, entrepreneur, and personal trainer.
According to TMZ, Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman told them that the pair will get into the ring in the Bahamas on October 24.
The publication previously reported that Joe's paycheck is based on the number of Pay-per-view purchases, and the match will be three 1 minute, 30-second rounds.
Ojani was the Ain't It Funny hitmaker's first husband and the pair tied the knot in 1997 after a whirlwind romance but called it quits less than a year later in 1998.
Speaking of her marriage to Noa and Cris Judd, Jennifer, 50, had some harsh things to say about their romances after she got engaged to former MLB star Alex Rodriguez in 2019.
She said on her YouTube channel: "I've never been married in a church. I've been married three times, and once was nine months and once was 11 months, so I don't really count those".
Meanwhile, Joe revealed how focused he is on his "redemption" celebrity boxing match in an exclusive interview with The Sun last month.
The TV personality has been living and working in Salerno in his native Italy for the past few months, where he is training for his upcoming celebrity boxing match.
During coronaviru lockdown, he has been unable to go to his boxing gym, so he has been working out in the mountains using wooden blocks as weights to get in fighting shape.
At the time, his opponent was not yet announced, but Joe said he was ready for anybody – even a professional fighter.
"You know there's been talk about Conor McGregor, this person, that person," Joe said. "I really don't care who it is… I want it to be somebody that's going to be a challenge though.
"I don't want it to be someone I'm just going to beat right away. When I know that I'm going up against somebody that's good I've got a whole different mindset.
Adding: "If I'm thinking I'm going against somebody that I don't really think is that good, then I can't pump myself up."
"Since we've been locked down for two months, I've been training up in the mountains. So I basically make my own weights up there were from blocks.
"And then I just shadow box while I'm up there, then I kick and I punch it. It's actually a pretty good workout up there."
Joe, who dropped 50 pounds behind bars by hitting the gym, said the theme of the fight is "redemption" following his over three-year federal prison stint for fraud.
After being released, the star then spent six months in an ICE detention center before being deported to Italy.
And while his latest deportation appeal was denied in April, Joe said he's not giving up – and hopes one day to be allowed back in the US
