150,000 pay-per-view broadcasts at $49.99 were sold out on Saturday night's Triller Fight Club in Hollywood. The main event of the night was a duel between nearly 59-year-old Evander Holyfield and former UFC bantamweight champion Vitor Belfort.
The spectacle of beating Evander Holyfield was to the taste of few boxing fans. But, on the other hand, there is an upside to the 59-year-old legend's painful return. Prior to the fight, there was constant conflicting information in the media as to whether the bouts of the evening in Hollywood, Florida, would be official or exhibition ones. A few dozen hours before the tournament itself, it was announced that the result of the fight would be put on the record of Holyfield and Vitor Belfort (1-0, 1 KO). In the end, however, the fight turned out to be an exhibition affaire.
