It’s official: Farrah Abraham is out of the Boom Cups charity boxing match on Saturday, and Mob Wives star Natalie DiDonato is in! Farrah’s former competitor Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander took to Instagram on Nov. 5 to reveal that the show was going on without the former Teen Mom star.
“#MobWives @nataliedidonato_ stepped up to hop in the ring with me to raise awareness for #AntiBullying. Lets gooooo! Nov 10th #AtlanticCity 🖤,” wrote Nicole next to a new flyer featuring Nat D instead of Farrah. To confirm the exciting news, Nat posted a photo of herself ready to fight on Insta stories with the caption, “Looks like I’m heading to the boxing gym!”
After months of kicking butt in training (and getting killer abs), Farrah dropped out of the fight late last week. While she’s been super excited to go toe-to-toe with the former Flavor of Love contestant, Farrah felt bamboozled by the promoter, who reportedly offered her a bunch of free tickets and accommodations for friends and family, and then couldn’t deliver as the fight drew closer. The promoter says that was never the case, and Farrah started making wild demands at the last minute.
Hoopz was determined to have the fight regardless of whether or not Farrah showed up. Two days ago, she wrote, “She’s using the promoter as a reason to back out… the fight is still happening, with or without her. We agreed because of the cause, not because of Farrah. See everyone on November 10.”
It’s unclear how exactly Nat got involved in the fight, but it might be at the suggestion of her fellow Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo, who will be a referee for the event. To be honest, we would have loved to see Drita step up and replace Farrah, since the two have feuded a lot over the past few months. Still, we’re just glad the fight will still go on to raise awareness for a great cause, anti-bullying.
