A round of drama is surrounding a proposed reality show face-off in the boxing ring.
Farrah Abraham has refused to fight in a celebrity boxing match against Nicole ‘Hoopz’ Alexander amid her claims that the promoters hasn’t upheld their part of the deal.
The promoters are now promising the former Teen Mom OG star, 27, will be sued for millions of dollars if she backs out of the November 10 event in Atlantic City, New Jersey, according to The Blast.

The reality star backed out after claims she hasn’t gotten the 32 hotel rooms, six plane tickets and 24 fight tickets that she was promised.
But promoters Damon Feldman, Samantha Goldberg and their lawyer say there was never a specified number of rooms in the contract, and that Abraham’s team sprung new demands on them last week.
They are now threatening to sue millions of dollars for breach of contrast if she fails to show for the event.
The Blast reported that first class tickets have been purchased for Abraham and her nine-year-old daughter Sophia, and that she has been paid half the money she’s owed up front.

‘I’m bummed about it. I’ve been working out. I’ve been overly ready,’ Abraham explained in a video published by The Blast. ‘But if they want to change the seats, get the travel and get the things they agreed to legally, then it would be great, and then I would still show up.’
Organizers say Abraham never complained about any unmet needs during their press tour, which includes an appearance about a week ago.
But sources close to the 27-year old reality mom say they believe the promoters have not come through with all of her demands, like the six first class plane tickets and a private security team.
‘Farrah has no choice but to not be involved in this debacle,’ Abraham’s manager, David Weintraub, told The Blast. ‘The promoter has been been in breach of the contract, he has not delivered on anything that was promised in the contract.’
He added: ‘Mostly, it was based on misinformation about his financial situation. We wish him the best with the low-end, mockery of an exhibition fight. He also never secured a proper pay-per -view deal which was in the contract, or sold enough tickets.’

Farrah has been proudly showing off the results of her training in recent weeks.
‘I’m going to take her out worse than McGregor got taken out,’ the reality star is quoted saying in a recent interview, according to People.
‘I guess I’m Floyd Mayweather and she’s [Connor] McGregor.’
Abraham’s opponent Nicole is best known for her role on VH1 reality shows Flavor of Love and I Love Money.
Promoters say the celebrity boxing match is part of an effort to raise awareness for anti-bullying.
