While the card has been built pretty well, former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield is no longer a part of it. Initially, Holyfield was reported to return against Kevin McBride in the same card on June 5.

The 58-year-old veteran had also appeared in the media interaction for Triller and was apparently undergoing a training camp for the exhibition fight. Nevertheless, the new fight card doesn’t display his name and the exact reason is yet to be known.
