Amy Fisher—the alcoholic turned six-figure salary porn star and Celebrity Rehab graduate—became known as the Long Island Lolita in 1992 when she severely wounded and nearly killed her lover’s wife at the age of 16. Two decades after blasting Mary Jo Buttafuoco in the face, and having served seven years in prison for first-degree aggravated assault, it's still perhaps no surprise that Fisher has not yet found an opponent willing to step into the ring and trade punches—it was revealed yesterday that she's signed herself up for Celebrity Boxing. Alki David, president of Filmon.com, will choose Fisher’s opponent for her November 5 bout, and $5,000 is on offer to anyone foolhardy enough to take on the 37-year-old adult entertainer. Fisher might also be looking for a punching bag to vent frustrations about an unappreciated reputation—she recently reached out to fans to refute assertions by Celebrity Rehab that she is an alcoholic: “The producers of Celebrity Rehab are using creative editing to misrepresent [me],” said Fisher, who also told her Twitter followers in July that her Rehab appearance was a sham. Oddly enough, the seemingly sober boxing enthusiast might end up right back where she started if she takes her new occupation too far—repeated beatings to the head leave you vulnerable to chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease that can cause addiction, depression and anxiety. Should she throw in the towel after several rounds of stiff jabs and left hooks, we may once again see the same physically and emotionally fragile Amy Fisher that we watched on the fifth season of Celebrity Rehab.
