Evander Holyfield Knocked Out In First Round By Vitor Belfort

Former all time great Evander Holyfield returned to the ring on Saturday night to face former UFC great Vitor Belfort in the main event of a Pay Per View Triller card that aired live from Miami’s Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Oscar De La Hoya was supposed to be facing Belfort, but a case of Covid kept him out. In stepped Holyfield – at the eleventh hour.

It proved to be a bad idea. Vitor rocked the 58 year old legend early, then banged away until Holyfield went down. Being a warrior, Holyfield got up, but was then sent down again. The referee then wisely stopped the fight.

“That was not Evander Holyfield,” said former President Donald Trump from the broadcast booth.
