“I love great fighters and great fights,” Trump said in the press release. “I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside. You won’t want to miss this special event.”

Trump is a combat sports fan with a close relationship to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President, Dana White. He became the first active U.S. President to attend a UFC event when he sat cageside for UFC 244 (watch here), headlined by Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal.

Holyfield (44-10-2-1, boxing) has not competed in professional boxing since a technical knockout win over Brian Nielsen on May 7, 2011. The 58-year-old boxing legend is an Olympic medalist and the only four-time world Heavyweight boxing champion.

Belfort (26-14-0-1, MMA), meanwhile, is a former UFC Light Heavyweight titleholder and multiple-time title challenger. He is also an undefeated professional boxer; however, he competed only time in the sport in 2006, defeating Josemario Neves via first-round knockout.
