On September 11, more precisely on the night from Saturday to Sunday, under the auspices of the Triller Fight Club company, a boxing event will be held, led by a fight between Vitor Belfort and Evander Holyfield. Former US President Donald Trump will be one of the guest commentators.
'' I love big fights and big fighters. I look forward to it on Saturday as well as sharing my thoughts sitting right next to the ring. You don't want to miss this special event, '' Donald Trump said in a Thriller's official announcement.
Donald Trump before engaging in politics hosted numerous martial arts events in his hotels and casinos. The former US president is also a great friend of UFC President Dana White, and everyone is familiar with the scenes when Colby Covington visited Trump in his presidential office and took pictures with Covington's belt as the interim UFC welterweight champion.
Donald Trump has often been seen at various UFC PPV events, so he was a guest of the UFC 244 (Masvidal vs. Diaz) event held in 2019 in New York and the UFC 264 event (McGregor vs Poirier 3) which took place in July this year.
It is obvious that Trump loves martial arts and it will certainly be interesting to listen to him in the role of a commentator. The former US president served from 2017 to 2021 With the exception of Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort who will lead the show, viewers will be able to watch the fight between Anderson Silva and Tito Ortiz.
English boxer David Haye (28-4-0) is also returning to boxing for more than a three-year hiatus. The 40-year-old "Hayemaker" will compete with the Briton Joe Fournier (9-0-0, 1 NC). Apart from the three mentioned fights, according to the current schedule, we should watch two more fights.
Andy Vences (23-2-1) and Jono Carroll (19-2-1) will compete in the super lightweight category while Anthony Chavez (9-1-0) and Diuhl Olguin (15-19-4) will be fighting in the featherweight category. The show will be broadcast via FITE TV, and if you decide to buy PPV, it will cost you $ 50.
Of course, most of these matches will be interesting, although most give an emphasis on the match between Vitor Belfort and Evander Holyfield, which is expected to be a real refreshment in the world of boxing. Belfort and Holyfield are great fighters, and although they are in their late years they can still offer a lot.
It is their fight that will cause nostalgia in slightly older boxing companions and will remind them of the times when boxing was much more than a sport and the focus was much less on finances. With Trump, this will look more interesting and will attract more attention. Thriller made a good move, it must be admitted!
