Suleman, 36, won the match, and reportedly said of the Hollywood event, “I think it’s a great opportunity, I’m very grateful."
A portion of the boxing match’s proceeds will go to FilmOn Charitable Trust, a foundation that will pass the money to several children's charities.
Though she’s maligned in the media for having been implanted with 12 embryos (and giving birth to octuplets as a single mom with six additional kids), Suleman had the crowd’s support as she fought Fisher. Wearing all black, Nadya defeated her Celebrity Fight Night opponent in three rounds. And wearing oversized gloves, no less!
Amy Fisher – who notoriously shot her former lover Joey Buttafuoco’s wife in the early '90s – wore a red crop top featuring a sparkly American flag and sequined hot pants.
Now 37, Fisher served seven years for assaulting Mary Jo Buttafuoco. Ex Joey Buttafuoco is also involved in the Celebrity Boxing Federation.
According to the Daily Mail, Nadya wasn’t looking down on her opponent, Amy Fisher: “She’s very nice, I’ve met her. I’ve never followed any stories about her…none of us are perfect, no one has the right to judge other people, everyone’s made mistakes.”
Other names participating in the Celebrity Boxing Federation include Damon Feldman, “Real Housewives Of D.C.” cast member Tareq Salahi, Coolio, Jeremy Jackson and Lindsay’s notorious dad, Michael Lohan.
As for how she's dealing with parenting 14 kids and preparing for the fight, Suleman reportedly says she's been staying productive. She may have even found a new vocation – acting. Suleman stars in upcoming horror flick “Millennium,” and hopes to continue working.
“It turns out I have a hidden talent for the screen,” she said, according to the Mail. “Apparently, I’m an inborn emotional actress - my mother’s always been saying that.”
