Mitt Romney throws punches with five-time heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield Friday in Salt Lake City.

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney squared off against five-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield Friday night.

The boxing match took place in Salt Lake City and was a fundraiser for Charity Vision, an organization that fights blindness worldwide. Charity Vision hoped to raise $1 million at the event.

Ring side tickets to the bout went for $2,500, and the event also included an auction.

People like me are not welcome here. By which I mean ragged and underdressed. #RomneyHolyfield #QuakeOnTheLake

The fight began tamely enough, with Romney, 68, pawing gently at Holyfield, 52.

Then, in a surprise twist, Romney boxed Holyfield into a corner.

And then, because he is a good sport, Holyfield went down.

But eventually Holyfield had enough of Romney's shenanigans and chased him around the ring, at which time Ann Romney threw in the towel.

Holyfield was pronounced the winner.

After the match ended, both fighters hugged.

A great fight by @MittRomney and @holyfield that helped raise more than $1 million dollars! #cvfightnight

Romney cracked a few jokes about Democrats, and himself.

Romney said he wanted to make sure his boxing match with Holyfield was “as clean as Hillary Clinton’s server.”

Romney after boxing match with Holyfield: “I’m ready to take on Harry Reid’s exercise equipment next.”

Romney to Holyfield: “Please, champ, don’t beat my brains out, because if you did, I’d have to become a Democrat.”

Ann Romney seemed to thoroughly enjoy her husband's fight.

Charity Vision announced afterward that it had exceeded it's goal of raising $1 million. So, mission accomplished.
