Fort Lauderdale, FL (September 11, 2021) In front of a standing-room only crowd on Saturday night at the Hard Rock LIVE at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Fort Lauderdale, FL, TRILLER FIGHT CLUB presented an outstanding, action packed evening of boxing and music.
With the 45th President of the United States, DONALD J. TRUMP commentating on the FITE.TV Pay-Per-View and phenomenal music from ANITTA, LUNAY and GENTE DE ZONA, fans were treated to an extraordinary evening of entertainment.
Headlining the event, former UFC Heavyweight World Champion VITOR ‘THE PHENOM’ BELFORT, (2-0, 2 KOs), stopped former Undisputed Cruiserweight and Heavyweight World Champion EVANDER ‘THE REAL DEAL’ HOLYFIELD, (44-11-2, 29 KOs), in the first round. Dropping Holyfield twice in the opening stanza, the bout was stopped at 1:49 of the round as the heavy-handed Belfort proved too much for the Hall of Famer.
“It was a legendary moment for me to fight tonight. I’m very blessed. It was a great environment here, great fights and competition,” said Belfort. “We can all learn from the sport of boxing about how to adapt. We should be more caring for each other in this great country of America.”
“You never judge how many victories you have, you judge by the quality of your opponents. When you fight someone, the two warriors gain immediate respect for each other. For me to be able to compete with Holyfield is a dream.”
Continued Belfort, “Yes, I challenge Jake Paul to a thirty-million-dollar winner take all fight, he cannot say no to me, he needs a real fight.”
Said Holyfield, “I wasn’t able to bounce back like I used to. I let him get too close. But he’s strong and he pushed me but I wasn’t hurt. I’m not hurt at all. Yes, I’m still interested in fighting Mike Tyson.”
