Former world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield wants to reconnect with the ring, ten years after his last fight against Danish Brian Nielsen. After dominating celebrities like George Foreman, Riddick Bowe or Mike Tyson, this time he will have to face Vitor Belfort, 44, former UFC light heavyweight champion. A poster that you can follow overnight from Saturday to Sunday, live from Florida. The icing on the cake: the match will be commented by the 45th President of the United States, recently retired, Donald Trump.
Date: Sunday, September 12 Location: Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida Time: 1 a.m. (French time) Broadcast on: Fite TV (global) Watch everywhere: try the best VPN of the moment 100% risk-free
Surprisingly, the Florida Athletic Commission has approved the Holyfield vs Belfort bout, assuring that the event will follow all applicable safety and public health regulations.
Holyfield, one of the greatest boxers of all time, has played 231 fights in his 27-year career, 204 of which ended in victory. At almost 59, he dares to put his reputation on the line, replacing Oscar de la Hoya at short notice – the latter having withdrawn barely a week ago.
Across the ring, Belfort has only boxed professionally once before. However, younger than 14, he holds the record for the most KOs in UFC history. And he does not intend to hold back the blows against his elder brother.
It is an intergenerational battle that seems already folded. And yet the stars have always been on Holyfield’s side. Will he show them to his rival on Saturday? Here’s how to savor every second of this event, no matter where you are in the world.
No French channel has bought the broadcasting rights for this improbable meeting, and for good reason: it was not scheduled just a week ago.

Whether it’s from your web browser or via mobile app, all for $ 4.99 per month. Bonus: a 7-day free trial period is available See the offer
