Vitor Belfort’s cross over into the boxing world was a success on Saturday when he defeated the legendary Evander Holyfield in the Triller Fight Club main event.

Belfort, a former UFC champion, was supposed to fight Oscar De La Hoya on the card. COVID-19 prevented that fight, though, so Holyfield stepped in despite being 58 years old and having not fought in a decade. Belfort showed why there were concerns, earning a first-round TKO win at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla.
