Evander 'The Real Deal' Holyfield will lock horns with former UFC light-heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort this Saturday on Triller Fight Club. 58-year-old Holyfield, best known for "the bite fight" against Mike Tyson, stepped in at the last minute after Oscar De La Hoya contracted covid. The hotly-anticipated Fite.TV (opens in new tab) PPV is $49.99 in the US and $13.99 in the UK.

Saturday's much-hyped Triller Fight Club – dubbed 'Legends 2' – is shaping up to be one of the most bizarre, and yet watchable, boxing matches of recent times. Evander Holyfield was already plotting a return to the ring, but the news that De Le Hoya had gone down with covid accelerated The Real Deal's comeback.
Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs) last boxed in 2011, scoring a tenth-round TKO victory over former IBO heavyweight champ Brian Nielsen. More recently, Triller offered Holyfield and a huge payday to fight 55-year-old Tyson, but the deal is yet to be sealed.
In the meantime, Triller has engaged Holyfield to stand in for De La Hoya. The California State Athletic Commission refused to sanction the fight so the card has moved from LA to Florida, and the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The fight is set for eight rounds of three minutes.
Holyfield's opponent will be Brazilian MMA star Vitor "The Phenom" Belfort, who has only boxed once as a professional, beating Josemario Neves by TKO within the first minute after knocking his opponent down three times.
The Real Deal isn't the only boxing great on the card. The Legends 2 event will also see David Haye come out of retirement to take on Joe Fournier. And there's UFC superstars, too, in the shape of Tito Ortiz vs Anderson Silva.

Holyfield on returning to the ring in 2021
"Where an opportunity is available, I like to make the best out of what I have. I believe if I fought Mike [Tyson] the fight will generate $200million.
"It will be the biggest fight there is. That’s the honest truth. I think Mike has my message already. If he is going to do it he is, if not then he’s not.
“It’s a decision he has to make now and we both have to be in an agreement.”
