Evander Holyfield To Fight Former UFC Champion Vitor Belfort On Sept 11 In Florida After Oscar De La Hoya Forced Out With Covid

Evander Holyfield

Triller had a bit of bad luck this week with Covid but they’re moving quickly to save their latest fight card.

On Friday, a week before his scheduled bout against Vitor Belfort, Oscar De La Hoya was removed from the card after catching Covid.

Triller immediately called up 58=year-old Evander Holyfield who signed a deal to replace De La Hoya. Holyfield was denied a fight license by the California State Athletic Commission, and the fight card which was originally set to take place in Los Angeles will now be held at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

Triller released the first trailer for the Holyfield-Belfort fight which has been dubbed “Legends 2.”

The Evander Holyfield-Vitor Belfort fight will air on Fite TV/ Triller PPV for $49.99 and will feature an undercard fight between MMA legends Anderson Silva and Tito Ortiz.
