Evander Holyfield’s return to the ring was not what was expected. The former heavyweight champion was defeated miserably by former UFC champion Vitor Belfort by a brutal KO just in the first round of the exhibition match.
Former United States President Donald Trump.
Donald Trump is serious about boxing: “I would KO Joe Biden in just a few seconds”
The 58-year-old ex-boxer could not recover his powerful blows or his resistance that made him one of the best in the world, in a fight that only lasted 1:49 minutes of the first round .
After a first burst of blows that sent him to the canvas, in the second attack the MMA one was lethal for the ex-boxer . Holyfield went against the ropes after an energetic combination of blows from Belfort that he couldn’t respond to … nor could he recover from.
The 44-year-old MMA fighter did not give his rival a choice in the less than two minutes that the fight lasted … and Donald Trump’s comments at his premiere behind the microphones, one of the main attractions of the fight , from that the presence of the former US president be announced until a few months ago.

The former 45th president of the United States announced earlier in the week that he would take part in the event at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Florida and the public responded in the best way.
