Perhaps the most bizarre event of the sport of the year has taken another weird turn. Triller Fight Club will showcase its latest PPVo products on Saturday, September 11, but it is not without some crazy changes at the last second. The main event was originally scheduled to be the return of Oscar De La Hoya (Oscar De La Hoya) in a duel with former UFC champion Vitor Belfort. After the fall, a backup plan must be made.
Enter the former heavyweight champion Evan Holyfield. The 58-year-old player had hoped to return to the game earlier this year, he will substitute De La Hoya in the main event to save this card. But since the California State Sports Commission will not approve Holyfield to take action, the entire card is being transferred from Los Angeles to the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs) has not participated in a boxing match since defeating Brian Nelson in Denmark in 2011. The former two-level champion has been training for a comeback game, but in exhibition matches that have been postponed many times, he saw his proposed Treler debut against former Mike Tyson conqueror Kevin McBride.
Belfort has only fought once as a professional boxer and won the knockout championship in 2006. In his MMA career, Belfort was a former UFC light heavyweight champion. He won the belt from Randy Couture in 2004 and won the doctor’s suspension in less than a minute. Luckily cut to Couture’s eyelid. Belfort lost the title to Couture in the next game, and went on to lose three attempts to win UFC gold medals, two for middleweight and one for light heavyweight.
