SALT LAKE CITY -- Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney faced a different kind of challenger Friday night.

Romney stepped into the boxing ring with five-time world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield -- all for a good cause.

At one point, Romney even knocked Holyfield down. But in the end, Holyfield was declared the winner.

$1 million was raised for Charity Vision, a group that provides eye surgeries for people in developing nations.

The charity is run by Romney's son.
