Evander Holyfield v Vitor Belfort Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions

I love boxing, I will never deny that fact. But I’m not sure all these exhibition bouts are doing the sport again. If it’s not a YouTuber trying his hand, it’s a UFC fighter lacing his gloves up or a retired boxer looking for a final payday and time in the spotlight.

Evander Holyfield was an amazing boxer and an even better world champion. He will be 59 years of age when he takes on Vitor Belfort – that doesn’t sit right with me.

We are all made to feel sorry for retired fighters whose health has deteriorated over the years due to the damage they have taken. Now, we are glorifying the return of someone who hasn’t fought in over a decade. My moral compass can’t cope with that.

Personally, I do not see the appeal of a nearly 60-year-old man going up against a fighter who has a history of steroid abuse.

I haven’t seen any videos of Holyfield training, but I can’t picture him bouncing around on his toes and avoiding punches.

These fighters have legendary careers, but you cannot judge any of them on this fight. To be honest, fans would probably get more enjoyment if these two fought each other on a boxing game for the PS5. At least they would look good.

I cannot see anything good coming from this fight, but the interest is there. I am reluctantly backing Belfort to win this one on points. The younger fighter will be able to control the fight and I think he will pick Holyfield off with ease.
