58 year old Evander Holyfield was TKO’d in the first round of his exhibition fight against former UFC fighter Vitor Belfort. Before the knockdown, Holyfield nearly fell through the ropes after he lost his balance.
Holyfield accepted the assignment on eight days’ notice after Oscar De La Hoya tested positive for COVID-19.
