A fight promoter in Massachusetts is looking for a volunteer willing to deck not only a woman, but a mother of 14. "Octomom" Nadya Suleman will be the featured fighter in a celebrity boxing match in Springfield later this month, reports the Republican. The controversial mom and her opponent will wear oversized gloves and go three 1-minute rounds.

“It’s just a fun fight, nothing serious," a Celebrity Boxing Federation spokesman says. “We would love to have a radio personality or someone well-known in the community who has a following and wants to get in the ring with Nadya. She has a great attitude about it and just wants to have a good time." (Read more women's boxing stories.)
