David Haye had to work for all 8 rounds but still won his fight against Joe Fournier easily with a unanimous decision. Jono Carroll and Andy Vences gave us the best match of the night where Carroll became the #1 contender for WBC International Silver Super-Featherweight Title.
There have been many musical performances also throughout the night.
Main Event time: The main event is upon us. The proceedings start with National Anthem of Brazil. After this, they remember the 9/11 attack and give a 10 bell salute before the National Anthem. “We want Trump” chants have started in the building and Trump stands up to acknowledge them.
Walk Out: Vitor Belfort is the first to walk out. It is a very short ramp, so the entrance is not that huge. The referee checks on him. Holyfield takes his time on the ramp before slowly heading to the ring. Announcements are done and we are ready to go.
Round 1: Both men are being cautious to engage. Holyfield lands a punch after 20-25 second but we can clearly see that he is very slow. Belfort has had enough of waiting and starts to fire lefts and rights. The referee separates them once.
Belfort drops Holyfield to the ropes with a jab. Belfort then lands a big uppercut. Holyfield is having a hard time coping with this attack. He starts to unload with punches one more time and the referee finally stops the fight in the first round itself.
Official decision: The winner by the referee stoppage after 1 minute 49 seconds is Vitor Belfort.
On the commentary, we are told that Holyfield is not happy with the stoppage. He is getting interviewed and once again says the same thing.
