Oscar De La Hoya and Vitor Belfort came face-to-face today (July 26) at the start of their pre-fight press conference, held in advance of this September’s pro boxing headliner at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Watch a video replay of today’s presser right here.
De La Hoya handpicked Belfort to be his comeback opponent after more than a decade away from the ring. I would imagine “The Golden Boy” is counting on facing the same “Phenom” who got knocked out in four of his last six UFC fights.
Perhaps now would be a good time to remind him of TRT-tor.
“While we both have a great deal of respect for each other’s accomplishments, on September 11, I will make my MMA fans proud,” Belfort recently told the media. “I hope I don’t end up killing him. But everything is on the table. This is a no holds barred, all-out gladiator fight to the bitter end.”
Their pay-per-view (PPV) showdown is being produced by Triller Fight Club.
