Rocker Benji Madden was crowned champion at a celebrity boxing match on Saturday night, April 3 after knocking out TV personality Riki Rachtman at the Las Vegas event. The Good Charlotte's guitarist went head-to-head with MTV star Rachtman at mixed martial artist Jason Ellis' Ellismania 5 fight at Sin City's Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

TV host Rachtman was so confident he would knock Madden out, he offered to pay organizer Ellis $1,000 if he lost. But when the pair stepped into the ring in front of a 3,000 strong crowd, which included Madden's bandmate and brother, Joel Madden, and Sum 41's frontman Deryck Whibley, Rachtman was knocked down three times before the referee stopped the fight, ruling a technical knock-out less than two minutes into the first round.

Rachtman told People after the match, "Benji Madden just kicked my a**. I got wasted by the guy in Good Charlotte." Madden responded, "That was the best backhanded congratulations I've ever gotten, but thanks anyways."
