Celeb Boxing! Octomom takes on Philly DJ

Nadya "Octomom" Suleman will be in town Saturday to take on Philly's own Wired 96.5 radio personality Shila Nathan in a Celebrity Boxing match.

Celeb Boxing! Octomom takes on Philly DJ

Some fantasies, it seems, can come true:

This weekend you can watch ... wait for it ...

... Nadya “Octomom” Suleman ... wait for it ...

... get pummeled!

Love her or hate her, you can support The OctoMaker’s faltering career as a Z-List celeb at a Celebrity Boxing freak-show extravaganza Saturday night in Broomall:

The the mother of 14 will step into the ring against local superhero Shila Nathan, co-host of the Wired 96.5 (WRDW 96.5-FM) morning show, Chio, Shila and Tingle in the Morning.

(Guess the fight will supplement Octomom’s income from her latest financial venture as a broker for loan sharks.)

The match, at 8 p.m. at Marple Sports Arena, at 611 Parkway Drive, in Broomall will feature two super-duper celeb referees; Glenn Mills native April Margera, the sublime muse of the MTV fine art programs, Viva La Bam and Jackass; and Lindsay Lohan’s pa, Michael Lohan, who has been running the celeb boxing racket with Octomom since last summer.

Wired 96.5 will enliven the evening with a performance by home-grown hip-hop star, Philly Chase.

Octomom, who has been training at City Fitness on Spring Garden in Philly, and Shila will go at each other for three one-minute rounds.

Octomom's boxing gloves are no strangers to our region. (Yet another point of pride for local citizens?)

The Octomominator made her boxing debut last July at the Pennant in Bellmawr in a nasty drag-out battle with another radio personality, Jen Posner from John Debella's WMGK (102.9-FM) show.

Octomom, Shila, I salute you!

May the best person … um ... whatever.
