The world’s only four-time heavyweight champion, Evander Holyfield went by the moniker ‘the Real Deal’ during his boxing peak, something that carried him to a long career. Does he have another great fight in him?
Now 58 years old, Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs) will face former UFC light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort (1-0 boxing, 1 KO) in an eight-round heavyweight exhibition match on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET at Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
Holyfield, who is the only boxer to win the undisputed championship in two weight classes (cruiserweight and heavyweight) in the three-belt era, will be making his first appearance in the ring since May 7, 2011, when he defeated Brian Nielsen by technical knockout. Holyfield is replacing former six-division boxing champion Oscar de la Hoya for this bout.
Belfort, who last fought in the UFC on May 12, 2018, is fighting in the second boxing match of his career. He previously made his debut on April 11, 2006, against Josemario Neves, winning the bout by TKO in the first minute. Belfort was also renowned for his striking ability in the UFC, recording 14 finishes, which is the third-most in the organization’s history.
