45th President Donald Trump will commentate on a boxing match this weekend. He will be joined by his son, Donald Trump Jr, to call the clash between Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort in Hollywood, Florida, on Saturday night.
Former world heavyweight champ Holyfield stepped in at the last minute for the exhibition bout after original entrant Oscar De La Hoya tested positive for coronavirus. Pay-per-view viewers will have the option of watching the regular broadcast or the special “gamecast” where Trump will appear.
“I love great fighters and great fights,” Trump said upon the announcement. “I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside. You won’t want to miss this special event.”
Trump and his son will commentate on the entire card which also includes UFC legend Anderson Silva and British former world heavyweight champion David Haye in action.
Trump is a long-time boxing fan and hosted and promoted numerous events during the Seventies and Eighties (Independent).
The fight and the Trumps’ alternate broadcast will be available for $49.99 on pay-per-view at FITE.TV.
