Taking a page out of the Triller handbook, Celebrity Boxing is adding a dash of MMA to its upcoming June 11 pay-per-view card.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell will serve as the referee for a boxing match between former NBA star Lamar Odom and rapper Aaron Carter, Celebrity Boxing Entertainment announced Thursday via press release.

In addition to “The Iceman,” hip-hop legend Ice T and his wife, reality TV star Coco, will serve as on-air hosts for the event.

Check out the updated poster for the event, which takes place at Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J.:

Also on the card, rapper Peter Gunz—best known for the 1997 hit Deja Vu (Uptown Baby) alongside Lord Tariq—boxes music executive, producer, and Love & Hip Hop cast member Cisco Rosado.

Celebrity Boxing Entertainment: Odom vs. Carter is available to purchase now on FITE TV for $29.99.

The card comes hot on the heels of a celebrity boxing boom caused by legends Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. meeting in an exhibition bout last November, and the rise of polarizing YouTube star Jake Paul, who knocked out Ben Askren inside of a round last month. Both of those events were promoted by Triller.
