Evander Holyfield vs Vitor Belfort: Triller Fight Club
Triller Fight Club will present a boxing PPV loaded with other entertainment prospects on 11 September 2021. The event will be headlined by a returning Evander Holyfield who will take on MMA fighter Vitor Belfort.
Belfort was earlier supposed to face Oscar De Loya but the latter contracted COVID-19 just days before the event. Holyfield, who was earlier supposed to return against Kevin McBride, agreed to fill in. The event was earlier planned in July but later postponed to September. Triller also shifted the venue from California to Hollywood after California’s State Commission refused to sanction a fight for 58 years old Holyfield.
On the undercard is Anderson Silva, who will take part in his second boxing bout against boxing debutant Tito Ortiz. Another World Champion will be making his return in the form of David Haye, who will take on Joe Fournier. Rounding off the undercard is the WBC International Silver Super-Featherweight Title Eliminator Bout between Andy Vences & Jono Carroll.
