MEDIA, PA. (AP) - A celebrity boxing promoter accused of fixing fights and not having a license when he staged a Philadelphia area bout between “The Partridge Family” television star Danny Bonaduce and a comedian from the Howard Stern show has been placed on probation for two years as part of a plea deal.

Damon Feldman operated the Celebrity Boxing Federation. He pleaded no contest Monday in Delaware County to fixing fights and promoting fights without a license. He tells The Associated Press he’d have liked to fight the charges but “didn’t want to take a chance.”

The Philadelphia Daily News says Feldman is barred from promoting for two years. He also must pay $7,500 restitution.

Feldman calls the celebrity bouts “100 percent entertainment.” He says he hopes to make a comeback.
