LIVE! Watch ‘Holyfield Vs. Belfort’ On PPV

Former Cruiserweight and Heavyweight undisputed world champion, EVANDER ‘REAL DEAL’ HOLYFIELD will battle Former UFC Light Heavyweight champion, VITOR ‘THE PHENOM’ BELFORT, in an eight-round boxing showdown set for Sat., Sept. 11, 2021, streaming online via Triller pay-per-view (PPV). “Holyfield vs. Belfort,” which will take place inside Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., start time is slated for 7 p.m. ET, with a PPV price tag of $49.99. The PPV also features UFC legends Tito Ortiz and Anderson Silva, as well as an appearance from former POTUS, Donald Trump!

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Belfort, who was originally expected to fight Oscar De La Hoya at this event, will be making his second professional boxing appearance. The MMA knockout artist found out just one week ago that his opponent for tonight would be Holyfield after De La Hoya pulled out of the fight due to COVID. It’s certainly a big switch, but “Phenom” seems ready nonetheless to put a hurting on a former world champion and become the next MMA star to have success inside of the boxing ring.

Holyfield, on the other hand, has nothing left to prove. The 58-year-old legend has been involved in some of the biggest heavyweight fights of all time and is stepping up on short notice to prove his experience is still measurable inside of the ring. “Real Deal” also jumped at an opportunity to score a nice PPV payday and to position himself for more high-profile matchups heading into next year.

Ahead of Saturday’s main event fight fans can check out the full fight video preview for Holyfield vs. Belfort above, courtesy of Triller’s “Legends II” docuseries. We’ll have to wait and see if Holyfield is biting off more than he can chew or if Belfort can stop a living legend in his return to boxing.
