Lamar Odom is looking GOOOOOOOD ... new sparring footage obtained by TMZ Sports shows the ex-NBA star is really getting the hang of boxing ahead of his bout with Aaron Carter.
The 41-year-old has been training like a mad man for his June 11 Celebrity Boxing tilt against the pop singer at the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City ... and it's clear the former hooper has hands!!
Check out the footage ... Odom -- who by the way is looking svelte and in shape -- is stringing together combos and moving around the canvas like a pro.
The power might not be there just yet -- but, hey, it's still a month away from fight night!!
As for Aaron, he's been taking the scrap seriously too ... getting in training sessions constantly and hitting the mitts as well.
In fact, we've also obtained some clips from one of Carter's recent sparring sessions ... and he ain't looking half bad either!!
We know ... it's not exactly Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury here -- but the event is still shaping up to be some must-see TV.
Plus, we're told Ice-T will be on the broadcast providing color commentary!!
Four more weeks away ... getcha popcorn ready.
