Triller Fight Club Legends 2: Holyfield vs. Belfort predictions

Holyfield weighs in at 225.4 pounds, Vitor at 206.2

It’s almost time for combat sport legends Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort to handle business at Triller Fight Club Legends 2 in Florida.

For those keeping score, the event was moved to the Seminole Hard Rock Resort & Casino in Hollywood, Florida from the Staples Center in Los Angeles as Oscar De La Hoya pulled out with COVID-19.

Four-time world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, 58, stepped in on short notice to take on former UFC tournament champion Vitor Belfort in the main event.

There has been a lot of comments on Holyfield’s media workout in which he looked slow to some critics. Probably none more notably than former UFC fighter turned broadcaster Michael Bisping.

Holyfield has said in interviews that he has been training for a long time previous to the event and because of the fact that he takes care of himself, he can take this kind of risk at 58 years old. He intends to go in there and do his best.

It should be noted that both fighters are licensed to fight in the state of Florida.

Oddsmaker MyBookie is weighing in with some interesting odds on the fights and former President Trump, who is scheduled to appear at the card.

Ante up, Ladies and Gentlemen.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the card.

ANDY VENCES (23-2-1, 12 KOs) (-105) VS. JONO CARROLL (19-2-1, 5 KOs) (-125)

Triller Fight Club

Courtesy Switchbox TV.

Andrews: A close fight. Vences is the bigger fighter. He can win if he utilizes the jab the way Maxi Hughes did against Jono, but I’m not sure if he can do that. Carroll is the southpaw, has fought better competition and his footwork and ability to fight on the inside gets him the decision.

Andrews Prediction: Jono Carroll via UD

DAVID HAYE (28-4-0, 26 KOs) (-1600) VS. JOE FOURNIER (9-0-0, 1NC, 9 KOs) (+800)

Triller Fight Club

Andrews: This fight was made over a simple argument between friends. Fournier, a successful English businessman and now boxer will fight the best name so far and at a disadvantage to the experience of his colleague. This is youth vs. experience Haye at 40 years old still has enough to get it done.

Andrews Prediction: David Hayes via UD 

TITO ORTIZ (21-12-1, MMA) (+700) VS. ANDERSON SILVA (35-11-0, MMA) (-1000)

Triller Fight Club

Andrews: Silva’s upset win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. surprised many and I think he has the advantage welcoming the former UFC light heavyweight champion. The weight cut to 195 will take some starch out of Oriz too.

Andrews Prediction: Anderson Silva via UD 

MAIN EVENT

EVANDER HOLYFIELD (44-10-2, 1NC, 29 KOs) (+190) VS. VITOR BELFORT (26-14-0, 1NC, MMA) (-235)

Triller Fight Club

Andrews: Holyfield obviously has the experience advantage but he hasn’t fought in over 10 years. Does he have enough left in the tank at 58 to fend off Belfort? I I think the activity of Belfort gets the decision.

Andrews Prediction: Vitor Belfort via UD

Triller Fight Club 2 is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 11 at 6 p.m. ET on pay-per-view.

Enjoy the fights.
