A report from TMZ claims Trump will bank an “obscene” payday for his fight night duties — categorized as “millions and millions” — along with a private jet to ship him to and from Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Sept. 11 in Hollywood, Florida.

The report also suggests some people connected to the event are “downright angry” that Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr., were added to this weekend’s “alternative” commentary desk, a controversial move in today's political climate.

Holyfield vs. Belfort, which features a cruiserweight co-main event between former UFC champions Anderson Silva and Tito Ortiz, will be staged under the Unified Rules of Boxing courtesy of the Florida State Athletic Commission.
