If music doesn't work out for Benji Madden, he may want to look into boxing.

The Good Charlotte guitarist fought former MTV host Riki Rachtman in a celebrity bout on Saturday night in Las Vegas. In only one minute and 40 seconds, the referee stopped the fight after Madden knocked Rachtman down three times.

After his victory, Madden, who was escorted to the ring by his brother Joel Madden, climbed the ropes of the ring to celebrate.

"Benji Madden just kicked my ass," Rachtman after the match. "I got wasted by the guy in Good Charlotte."

The victorious Madden responded, "That was the best backhanded congratulations I've ever gotten, but thanks anyways."

Following the fight Benji was spotted with Holly Madison at the club Wasted Space. The day prior the duo was spotted at Palms' N9NE Steakhouse.

 Madison has called Madden her "adventure buddy."
