Benzino doesn’t appear to have been able to lure 50 Cent into a boxing ring, so he’s settling for the next best opponent … and, apparently, that’s Aaron Carter.
Damon Feldman of Celebrity Boxing tells TMZ … the former pop star is lacing up his gloves again this summer to fight the “Love & Hip Hop” star in the main event. We’re told both contracts have been signed … and they’re slugging it out on June 11.

The match is set to go down at the Charles Dodge Center in Pembroke Pines, FL — and Feldman says BitCoin Rodney is promoting it. Aaron is stepping up for 50 Cent … whom DF and co. weren’t able to book.

Despite the bad blood between Benzino and Fitty — including the recent back and forth claims of outing attempts and alleged federal snitching — it doesn’t appear 50 was interested in settling their beef with hands … dude’s been mum on their public challenge.
Aaron, however, is coming back for seconds — you’ll recall … he got pummeled by Lamar Odom last year, where he was greatly outsized. Benzino’s also bigger than him, but it sounds like Aaron doesn’t care … and wants his shot to redeem himself.
