Antoine Dodson seeking revenge against his alleged bedroom intruder in celebrity boxing match
HUNTSVILLE, Alabama– It’s been four years since Huntsville resident Antoine Dodson became a viral sensation from a passionate interview with WAFF’s Elizabeth Gentle after an intruder allegedly broke into his home in Lincoln Park.
Now he’s getting his revenge.
On Nov. 2 in Los Angeles, Dodson will fight the alleged intruder in a “celebrity” boxing event on internet pay-per-view. Organizer Damon Feldman of World Xtreme Entertainment and promoter Alki David will present the event via FilmOn.com at 6 p.m. EST.
In a press conference last Thursday in Philadelphia, Dodson came face-to-face with the alleged intruder for the first time since the 2010 incident. What resulted can be best described as a “teaser” for the fight on Nov. 2.

Feldman, who has organized previous matches featuring Jose Canseco, Michael Lohan, and Rodney King, says it’s more of a show than a competitive contest.
“The gloves will be bigger and each round will be a minute and a half,” Feldman said. “But these guys will battle it out.”
Feldman said that Dodson was originally scheduled to fight Michael Lohan, but a man claiming to be the intruder e-mailed him ten times. Feldman asked for a picture and showed it to Dodson who confirmed that he was indeed the intruder.
When the alleged breaking and entering occurred in 2010, no arrest was ever made.
“It’s like a reality show in the ring,” Feldman said.
