When it comes to the world of combat sports, celebrity boxing is hardly anything new. It’s been around for a long time and has since picked up steam over recent years due to people like Jake and Logan Paul. Keeping that in mind, could the next celebrity boxing match involve Kanye West and Pete Davidson?
For those who are unfamiliar with the situation, Davidson began dating Kim Kardashian in late 2021 after she divorced West. While the music mogul moved on to start a relationship with actress and model Julia Fox, it’s clear that he’s not a fan of his ex’s new boyfriend. In fact, West even referenced Davidson in his new song “My Life Was Never Eazy,” saying that he was saved from a car crash so that he could beat up the latter.
While it remains to be seen if Kanye West and Pete Davidson will ever engage in an unlikely physical confrontation, that’s hasn’t stopped Bovada.lv from releasing odds on a potential celebrity boxing match. Obviously, it’s a long shot that it’d ever happen, but it’s still a fun idea to have some fun with.
Kanye West vs Pete Davidson Celebrity Boxing Odds
Odds via Bovada.lv as of Thursday, January 20
- Kanye West wins by points (-130)
- Pete Davidson wins by points (+100)
- West wins by KO/TKO or disqualification (+200)
- Davidson wins by KO/TKO or disqualification (+400)
- Draw (+1000)
- Kim Kardashian storms the ring during the fight (+2000)
As you can see by the above odds, the most likely scenario is for Kanye West to defeat Pete Davidson by points. After all, neither man is a trained boxer and it likely wouldn’t be anything close to a proper boxing match. However, West is friends with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul, who is 5-0 in his own boxing career, said that he’d help train the 44-year-old rapper to teach Davidson a lesson.
On the other hand, Davidson does have the height and reach advantage over West. The 28-year-old State Island native stands at 6-foot-3, whereas his “rival” is listed at 5-foot-8. That isn’t to say that Davidson can easily dominate West if they do step into the ring, although it doesn’t indicate that he has the tools to defend himself.
One of the more interesting scenarios is that Bovada has listed Kanye West and Pete Davidson to fight to a draw at +1000 odds. We haven’t seen too many celebrity boxing matches end in a tie, so it seems like a long shot. Nevertheless, a loss could damage either man’s brand, which is something they’d like to avoid. With that being said, a draw does have some potential even if it isn’t likely.
The least likely scenario is for Kim Kardashian to storm in the ring at some point at +2000. Although this fight is completely hypothetical and just for fun, her running down to the ring seems like something you’d see in a movie. It’s hard to imagine her doing this and putting herself in harm’s way, but stranger things have happened.
