On Tuesday, we told you that “celebrity boxing” promoter Damon Feldman was organizing a fight featuring John Bolaris, now of WeatherSavior.com. The opponent was, Feldman claimed, as yet undetermined: He was soliciting challengers via email.
Well, Feldman says the whole thing has been cancelled and that they had settled on Michael Lohan, yes the man responsible for half of the genetic makeup of Disney star-turned-train wreck Lindsay Lohan. And Feldman is blaming Bolaris for the cancellation.
Here is an (unedited) email that Feldman sent around on Thursday night:
Hi I just want to thank you for your coverage on John Bolaris I wasted 2 weeks on putting this together, I have advanced money here to hold venue opponent and more and after picking the venue Marple sports arena for sept 20 , the charity and the Opponent was going to be Michael Lohan who we where going to announce Monday, John said was the only person he would take on and Michael agreed John has pulled out leaving me and my company hanging and in a tough situation as I have put out cash n made promises to people and now John is saying all these different stories why he won't do it and the Backlash he received , your when he accepted and told me who he wanted to do the celebrity boxing match with. I am very pissed off here but I do want to thank you for helping with this this is very unprofessional what he did and used me for publicity and knew and now pulled out so now I will see him in court this is just disgraceful , thank you Sincerely Damon Feldman
Bolaris broke up with Feldman via text message. "He didn't even have the balls to call me," says Feldman. "That just shows you what kind of a guy he is. He punked out of this fight."
"He's been asking me to fight for a long time," responds Bolaris. "And I finally agreed to do it for charity. But then, there was a lot of negative feedback from my friends. They said, 'You don't need to do this. You want to be like Octomom and Tanmom?' But I never signed an agreement."
Bolaris went on WMMR's Preston & Steve show this week to discuss the prospect. "Are you friggin' out of your mind?" they asked.
"I'm trying to rebuild my career," says Bolaris. "I thought this would be fun. But then I realized it was just the wrong move for me."
And we agree with that assessment.
