Former President Donald Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. will provide commentary on a “gamecast” for Saturday’s pay-per-view boxing event led by the Evander Holyfield vs. Vitor Belfort bout, Triller network confirmed to ESPN on Tuesday.
The Trumps will call the entire four-fight telecast at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The card also includes Anderson Silva vs. Tito Ortiz and David Haye vs. Joe Fournier.
“I love great fighters and great fights,” Trump Sr. said. “I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside. You won’t want to miss this special event.”
The former president has hosted a number of boxing events throughout the 1980s and ’90s at his casinos in Atlantic City. He also owns a number of golf courses and owned a team in the short-lived United States Football League in the ’80s.
The Triller event was initially advertised as a bout between Oscar De La Hoya and Belfort, a 44-year-old MMA fighter. Though, last Friday, De La Hoya announced he was hospitalized with a breakthrough case of COVID-19, and therefore dropped out of the fight. The former boxing champion, 48, is fully vaccinated.
Soon after, Holyfield, a four-time heavyweight champion, stepped in to replace him.
