Recently, the final press conference took place for the intriguing legend vs. legend boxing bout between Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort. Here are some of the best highlights from the press conference.
Holyfield stepped in to replace Oscar De La Hoya, who had to pull out due to testing positive for Covid-19. Meanwhile, for Belfort, it is an honor to fight a boxing legend in Holyfield.
Holyfield was in talks with several people to book a trilogy fight against Mike Tyson, which never came to fruition. Thus, he has been training for two years and doesn't feel like stepping in on short notice will make any difference.
Holyfield has several statistical advantages, such as reach, height, and more. However, 'The Phenom' is not intimidated and feels like it's just about the mindset.
When asked bout similarities between Mike Tyson and Belfort's fighting style, which is being the aggressor, Holyfield doesn't feel like they are similar. 'The Warrior' believes he cannot outfight Belfort in MMA but can surely outbox him in boxing.
Ortiz wants to do the same thing he did in his professional MMA career, which is to make a statement in his co-main event bout against Aderson Silva.
Silva is happy to be a part of a fight card filled with legends, such as Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort.
