Damon Feldman aka Jewish Rocky a former professional boxer (9-0, 4 KO’s ) is the founder, CEO and creator of Celebrity Boxing, a fight competition that puts celebrities in the ring to box and raise money for charity. His idea for Celebrity Boxing has received national attention by putting D-list celebrities back into the lime-light. Some of these celebrities include Tonya Harding, Paula Jones, Octomom, Danny Bonaduce and Jose Canseco. Feldman has even set up a boxing match between an Uber and a Lyft driver in which the Uber driver won. Feldman has plans to bring Celebrity Boxing to Vegas in the fall.
Who is this boxer turned promoter and entrepreneur? We decided to get to know Damon with a few questions.
Jenny Sushe: What inspired you to Box?
Damon Feldman: My Dad
Jenny Sushe: What was your favorite job before becoming a Boxer?
Damon Feldman: Bus boy
JS: What’s your favorite memory from your first fight?
DF: the announcement of the winner and I looked down at my dad and blew him a kiss with my glove
JS: What was the best moment in your career?
DS: Fighting on national TV USA Tuesday night fights on the same card as Terrible Tim Witherspoon
JS: Who was your best opponent?
DF: Undefeated fighter Eduardo Calderon he was a tough Latino fighter
JS: How did you come up with idea of celebrity boxing?
DF: I was sort of looking for something to do other than regular boxing so I matched a radio DJ and a TV weatherman together then the rest is history.
JS: What are some of the struggles you have had working with celebrities?

JS: Who was your favorite celebrity to work with?
DF: Coolio, Jose Canseco and Octomom
Jenny Sushe: Your least favorite celebrity to work with?
Damon Feldman: I hate to say it but Tonya Harding
JS: I see that Farrah Abraham backed out of her fight with Nicole “Hoopz” Anderson. Can you tell us a little about that?
DF: This was the worst experience ever with celebrity boxing because she took our sponsors money, she showed up at the press conference the week before then held me down asking for 6 first class flights and 35 hotel rooms. It was her way of getting out of it total disgrace.
JS: You filed a lawsuit seeking financial damages and the judge issued a default judgement in your favor. Has Farrah paid you?
DF: Yes I did, and no I never got paid and probably never will. She owes a lot of other people as well.
JS: October 19th Celebrity boxing is coming to Vegas. How did you get Justin Beiber to agree to Celebrity boxing? Or did he contact you?
DS: One of his associates contacted me and put us two together it’s not finalized yet but we’re hoping. Things like this get torn apart fast if it’s too much out there in the public eye but this sure we will be a big one
JS: How many rounds? And is it going be the full 3 minute rounds or 2 minute?
DF:Celebrity boxing matches are three one and a half minute rounds
JS: These aren’t pros so they probably have glass jaws. Do the refs have special care instructions?
DF: Yes we keep this very safe but people can battle it out a little I’m trying to build a WWE of boxing.
JS: What’s next for you?
DF: Right now August 17th in Atlantic City with internet Superstar Antoine Dodson and I’m just working on my movie the 16 Minute Man people can get involved with the movie also if you go to the 16minutemanmovie.com
JS: If you could invite 3 people to sushi who would you choose?
DF: I love this question you LOL but probably Mark Wahlberg Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Lopez.
