Celebrity boxing has officially found Riddick Bowe’s replacement for next month’s boxing match against Lamar Odom.
Earlier this week, the 54-year-old Bowe was pulled from his scheduled fight against the former NBA star following outcry from the Internet after disturbing training footage showed the boxing champ moving gingerly while shadowboxing.

TMZ Sports has learned 47-year-old Ojani Noa has agreed to fight the 41-year-old ex-hooper on October 2 at the James L. Knight Center in Miami, FL … all part of a Celebrity Boxing card.
If you don’t remember Noa, a former server, he was married to Lopez from 1997 to 1998 … before they split.
Riddick Bowe will still make an appearance in Miami and will actually serve as the referee for the Odom-Noa fight.
