KEY POINTS

  • Lamar Odom eyes revenge in a boxing match against Jake Paul
  • Paul could be in for a fight with Odom due to his physical advantage
  • Odom may have to wait in line for Paul

Former Los Angeles Lakers player Lamar Odom appears dead serious in pursuing a boxing career--but against aspiring boxers in fellow celebrities.

Most are eager to see how the 6-foot-10 will fare against rapper Aaron Carter, with most tipping him to win.

Odom holds physical advantages over the 33-year-old artist. Footage of him sparring and knocking down a sparring partner, Barry Young, made its rounds on the internet.

But while that may be impressive, he cannot take Carter lightly and look beyond the American singer.

Hence, Odom needs to make sure to pull off a win over Carter and then worry about what comes next.

But this early, it appears the two-time NBA champion already has his sights on another celebrity name in Jake Paul, someone who made headlines recently when he crashed the Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul press conference.

The highlight of that was stealing the undefeated boxer’s cap that sparked a commotion.

Odom is set to fight Carter on June 12 in Atlantic City with the 41-year-old an odds-on favorite.

Assuming the 2011 NBA Sixth Man of the Year awardee pulls through, the YouTuber is his next target.

He made that clear in a clip obtained by TMZ and explained that he wanted revenge for what Paul did to another former NBA player--Nate Robinson.

"After Aaron Carter, I would love to fight Jake Paul. For Nate Robinson," Odom said in the video.

Most will recall that Paul knocked out Robinson in the second round back in November.

Most were concerned about that scene although the 36-year-old showed everyone that he was able to recover.

Paul continues to get criticism for challenging people who have little to no boxing experience.

But against Odom, assuming it does materialize, he could be in for a fight.

One of them is he may have trouble going for a knockout, with Odom holding a nine-inch height advantage--not to mention a longer reach.
