Kim and Rob Kardashian Injured at Charity Boxing Event

Sounds like the Kardashian Charity Knock Out was a big hit in more ways than one.

Kim Kardashian reports on her official Web site that the boxing charity event—which raised funds for The Dream Foundation—was quite the brawl. Especially for her brother Rob, who wound up in the hospital after being paired with a much larger opponent.

Kim explains,

“When Rob stepped in the ring to fight, his opponent was at least 25 lbs heavier than him, even though the organization had assured us that they were screening the people we were fighting against and that they would be within 5 lbs of our weights! At one point Rob’s mask fell off and when he put his hands down he got hit in the face and ended up in hospital with a concussion. Rob’s a strong guy and can definitely hold his own, but he wasn’t expecting to get hit after his mask had fallen off! This guy just got really down and dirty!”

Kim herself didn’t escape the event unscathed either, and ended up with a shiner:

“We were all really angry and upset about what had happened to Rob, but I hadn’t even fought yet and I didn’t want to let the charity down, so I decided to get in the ring. My girl was a good sport, but she was tough! I knew I had to do it for charity, since that’s what it was all about, but man, my girl could throw a punch! Look at my black eye!!!”

Kardashian adds that “Rob is doing fine now” and she’s taking the black eye in stride—especially since it was all for a good cause: “At the end of the day, we did this for charity and that’s what counts.”
