Well, it happened. In the main event of the Triller Fight Club Boxing Exhibition PPV from Florida, Saturday night, a near 60-year-old Evander Holyfield fought the 44-year-old Vitor Belfort in an exhibition bout (that was promoted as a pro bout). The ‘fight’ thankfully ended rather quickly, with the Brazilian scoring a standing TKO on the heavyweight legend.
In the co-main event former UFC champs Anderson Silva and Tito Ortiz collided in another bout that was technically an exhibition, but Triller sold to viewers as a pro boxing fight. That bout also ended quickly with ‘The Spider’ knocking Ortiz out cold.
In case you missed those stoppage, you can check them out below with ringside camera footage provided by ESPN.
It seems likely Triller will trot out ageing legends again for another one of these shows. Belfort, Silva and Ortiz have all spoken up about wanting to fight more in the boxing ring. All of those men have called out a Paul brother as their next opponent.
However, it seems Jake Paul—the current king of the celebrity circus fighting arena—is lined up to take on Tommy Fury in the near future.
