Lamar Odom is the latest former basketball player to sign up as a celebrity boxer.

Lamar inked a deal with Celebrity Boxing and is slated to fight June 12 at the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., according to TMZ Sports. No opponent has yet been announced.

Lamar may want to spend all of his time preparing for his upcoming fight to avoid an embarrassing defeat.

Former NBA player Nate Robinson became the source of many a meme when he stepped into a boxing ring in November against YouTube star Jake Paul, only to be knocked out in the second round.

During his time with the Lakers, Lamar averaged 13.7 points, 9.5 boards and 3.7 assists per game. He earned the 2011 Sixth Man of the Year award.

The athlete recently split from fiancee Sabrina Parr. The pair have publicly been trading barbs, with Lamar calling her "bitter" in a video he shared to his Instagram page last week.

Sabrina says she's already dating and has moved on.
