Long Island Congressman Peter King is preparing for a fight, but it has nothing to do with budget cuts.

King is about to step into the ring with a New York State kickboxing champion.

He’s lacing up his gloves for a 2-round exhibition bout against “Irish” Josh Foley.

They’re fighting this Saturday at a pub in Wantagh, but king says it’ll be less of a fight, and more of a sparring partnership.
