(Newser) – Mitt Romney will box Evander Holyfield in a charity event in Utah today, but first came the official weigh-in and obligatory, if jokey, stare-down. For the record, Romney came in at 179 pounds and Holyfield at 236.5, notes Mediaite. It's all in good fun: "I don't have much of a right hook, but when I get somebody's ear, I can be pretty formidable," says Romney, as quoted by AP. And for a good cause: raising money for CharityVision, which provides vision-saving surgery for patients in developing countries.
