Holyfield began complaining about the stoppage, claiming he was not hurt. Belfort challenged Jake Paul to the fight, offering to put $30 million on the line for the winner. The offer is also open to Canelo, though it's less than his usual purse.

In a boxing bout of two UFC legends, Anderson Silva scored a first-round victory over Tito Ortiz. Ortiz pressured Silva, but he defended well and was able to hurt Ortiz before sending him into a knockout. Silva defeated former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in June, proving he can box at a decent level.

Former heavyweight champion David Haye (29-4, 26 KOs) fought all 8 two-minute rounds against fellow businessman Joe Fournier (9-1, 9 KOs), which was more like sparring. Haye showed great defense and won easily round by round: 79-72, 80-71, 79-72. After the fight, Haye challenged WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
