Heavyweight boxing legend Evander Holyfield will tonight enter the ring at the grand old age of 58, taking on Vitor Belfort, the 44-year-old former UFC light heavyweight champ, in boxing’s latest time-hopping PPV extravaganza. This could be more of an ordeal than the “Real Deal”, and you can read on for the fight time, full card and your best Holyfield vs Belfort live stream options around the globe.
It’s the headline act on a genuinely mind-blowing card, which also features 46-year-old combat sports legend Anderson Silva, sprightly 40-year-old David Haye’s comeback, and live commentary from Donald Trump!
Astonishingly, the Florida Athletic Commission has approved the Holyfield vs Belfort bout as a fully regulated professional boxing match, which means it actually means something… to someone… presumably.
Holyfield, one of the greatest pound-for-pound boxers of all time, last stepped into the ring more than a decade ago, and if a return to the sport at his age didn’t already look ill-advised enough, remember that he was only parachuted in as a replacement for Oscar de la Hoya a week ago.
Belfort has only boxed professionally once before, but at 14 years his opponent’s junior and holding the record for most knockouts in UFC history, anything other than victory for The Phenom seems unthinkable.
It’s every inch the Battle of the Ages, and you can keep reading to find out all you need to know about getting a Holyfield vs Belfort live stream – and everything else tonight.
