Rep. Peter King dropped the verbal sparring for the actual physical kind Saturday night, stepping into the boxing ring to raise money for a friend's business.

The New York Republican squared off in a two-round bout against former kickboxing champion "Irish" Josh Foley, according to the Associated Press.

"Come on, Pete! Go get him! Knock him down!" spectators in the 400-person crowd cheered, Newsday reported.

No winner was declared in the fight between the 68-year-old congressman and his 31-year-old opponent.

According to the AP, a watchdog group said the fight constituted an ethics violation for having King favor a particular business. The congressman said the fundraiser was appropriate.
