Mitt Romney apparently still knows how to throw a punch.

The former Massachusetts governor and two-time presidential candidate fought former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield on Friday in a charity boxing match to raise money for Charity Vision, an organization that helps heal blindness around the world.

Even though Romney threw in the towel in the second round, he showed that he is an artful dodger in the ring, according to CNN. He even was able to knock down Holyfield at least once.

Romney entered the fight clad in a red robe as the song "I Will Survive" blasted in the background. He was accompanied by his wife, Ann, who wore a sweatshirt and a Batman baseball cap cocked to the side.
