Octomom to take more punches in Mass. boxing match

Octomom Nadya Suleman (NAH'-dee-uh SOO'-luh-mahn) isn't done taking punches.

The Springfield, Mass., newspaper The Republican reports ( http://bit.ly/qPMHyR) that Celebrity Boxing Federation promoter Damon Feldman announced Monday that Suleman will be the featured fighter in a bout in Springfield, 90 miles west of Boston.

Suleman drew criticism and was dubbed the Octomom in 2009 when she gave birth to eight babies in California. She was an unemployed single mother who already had six children. She says she was addicted to having children. Her octuplets are the world's longest-surviving set.

Feldman says he's looking for a woman who wants to get in the ring and "fight this well-known mom."

The fight will consist of three 1-minute rounds. The women will wear oversized gloves and protective head gear.

Suleman fought in a similar match in New Jersey in June. It was a draw.
