Hide yo kids! Antoine Dodson, the Internet celeb who rose to fame on YouTube after the creation of the song "Bed Intruder" following a local news interview, is set to fight the real-life intruder who invaded his home in an upcoming celebrity boxing match. (Yes, this is real life.)

In case you somehow missed the viral video back in 2010, Dodson's Lincoln Park housing project home in Huntsville, Alabama, was invaded, and during a local news interview, Dodson and his sister Kelly claimed the man (now outed as Rashaad Cooper) tried to rape her.

A suitably outraged Dodson told the cameras: "Well obviously we have a rapist in Lincoln Park. He's climbing in your windows, he's snatching your people up, trying to rape them so you need to hide your kids, hide your wife, and hide your husband."

Dodson's quotes were then taken by group The Gregory Brothers and auto-tuned into what epically became the "Bed Intruder" song.

According to the press release, "Dodson will get to face 'The Intruder' on live TV and make good on his original boast, 'We gon’ find you! We gon’ find you, Homeboy!'"

The match will be broadcast on pay-per-view platform on Nov. 2 at 6 p.m.
