Evander Holyfield is back in the ring on Saturday, September 11 when he faces Vitor Belfort live on pay-per-view. The scheduled for eight rounds heavyweight boxing match headlines the Triller Fight Club card billed as “Legends 2”. The location has been recently changed, with Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood in Davie, FL being a new venue accommodating the event.
The date when Holyfield vs Belfort airs live in the UK and Australia is Sunday, September 12.
“The Real Deal” stepped in to replace fellow-boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya, who caught COVID-19 and was forced to withdraw from his showdown with former UFC light heavyweight champion, Belfort.
While De La Hoya vs Belfort was set to take place at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, CA, Triller changed the location due to California State Athletic Commission reportedly not willing to sanction the bout with former undisputed cruiserweight and heavyweight champion, making his ring return at the age of 58.
Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs, 1 NC) was last in action over ten years ago, when he TKO’d Brian Nielsen in the tenth round of their bout in May 2011. Belfort (MMA 26-14, 1 NC, boxing 1-0, 1 KOs) last fought May 2018, when he was knocked out by Lyoto Machida in the second round, which concluded his run inside the UFC Octagon.
