In what could easily be billed as “The Thrilla From Coachella,” we could be seeing either Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan get into the boxing ring with former Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham! Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman has reportedly offered Lindsay and Paris a quarter of a million dollars each to box Farrah in Atlantic City on November 10.
Damon spoke with The Blast and revealed that his Celebrity Boxing investors “have agreed to pay either Paris or Lindsay $250,000 for 3, 2-minute round matches with the former Teen Mom.” In addition to the payout, there will be an extra $100,000 “locked up for a charity of their choice.”
Damon confirmed the offer on his Instagram page by sharing a screen cap of The Blast’s article and adding:
Whos gonna step up to fight this is in believable finding the right celebrity @farrah__abraham

Todays final day let’s see who comes on board I want to thank my investors who have stepped up for this offer and Omar Choudri, The first female Celebrity Boxing championship ……Come on Lindsay or Paris ….regardless opponent will be announced tomorrow also thanks to the @Blast’ Gary Trock and keep following this fight on The Blast Showboat Atlatic city November 10 tix on saoe tomorrow when opponent is announced, so many great female celebs want this . #stop bullying#fightAlzhiemers#Celebrity Boxing##womenbatte#showboatac
Damon’s Instagram fingers appear to be a bit clumsy, but it sounds like Farrah’s opponent will be announced on Tuesday either way, with tickets going on sale immediately.
If you are super excited about the possibility of seeing Paris or Lindsay get in the ring with Farrah, I wouldn’t get your hopes up. These kinds of offers are trademark publicity stunts for Damon. Actually, Paris and Lindsay appear to be his go-to female celebrities for headline-grabbing offers for attention. Back in 2011 he offered both of them $500,000 to fight each other!
As far as who Farrah will actually fight, we have no real clues. It appears as though she is still adamantly opposed to fighting former Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo with Farrah stating the reason being that the fight is to raise anti-bullying awareness and that Drita is not anti-bullying.
Former 16 and Pregnant star Lindsey Nicholson is still keen to get in the ring after our initial post about Farrah’s boxing aspirations caught her eye a couple weeks ago. That may not be likely either because Lindsey recently revealed that Farrah had blocked her on social media after she issued the challenge.
Of course, it may not have been Lindsey’s challenge to get in the ring that alienated Farrah, it may have been her statement about Farrah not being a good representative for an anti-bullying awareness event. Here is a statement from Lindsey’s Instagram on July 28 — including a response from Teen Mom 2 star Kail Lowry, who also expressed interest in fighting Farrah:
Clearly, I think everyone wants to see Farrah versus Drita, but seeing as how that matchup is unlikely to happen, who do you think will wind up in the ring with Farrah? Could there still be a chance that they would actually be able to get Amber Portwood? I guess we will all find out on Tuesday!
