Fly like a butterfly. Sting like a bee. You can’t beat the greatest ‘cause…she’s Jennifer Lopez! J. Lo is set to headline and be honored by Muhammad Ali at this year’s Celebrity Fight Night. While she’s no stranger to throwing on the gloves, it’s not exactly why she’s there…
Now, I know what you’re thinking, and as amusing as it would be to see celebs settle their beef in the boxing ring (The Wanted vs. One Direction? Chris Brown vs. Frank Ocean?!), Celebrity Fight Night is a star-studded, fight-free night of good fun, good music, and a charity auction to benefit the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center.
Celebrity Fight Night has raised over $80 million for charity over the past 18 years. And if you think going to the movies is expensive, get this: tickets range from $1,500 to $100,000 each! I guess I’ll just have to live vicariously through Instagram on this one…and through these epic pics of J. Lo being a badass:

If Celeb Fight Night were actually about fighting, J. Lo would totally win in the boxing and the looks departments.
+ J. Lo in “Enough”
J. Lo played a battered wife in the thriller “Enough.” “[If] you’re in these negative situations — negative relationships, whatever — you can get out,” Lopez said while promoting the film. “The power to get out of those things is always within yourself.”
+ J. Lo in a Boxing Ring
During her world tour with Enrique Iglesias, J. Lo’s stage was designed to look like a boxing ring…complete with sexy boxers. That’s one fight I’d LOVE to be in.
+ J.Lo at the 2010 American Music Awards
Before “American Idol,” Jennifer attempted a comeback at the 2010 AMAs. And while that may have fallen flat — she fell during the performance, but effortlessly got back up and went with it — she fought her way back the following year with her international top 10 smash featuring Pitbull, “On The Floor.” Two words: true fighter.
+ J. Lo in “Parker”
Does J. Lo ever play anything but a sexy badass in her movies? Check “Parker” out for tons of action, fighting, and the requisite Jennifer Lopez panty scene. Hey, if you were 43 and still looked like she does, you’d show it off too!
