Donald Trump to give 'no holds barred' commentary on TV return

"I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside. You won't want to miss this special event."

Former president Donald Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr., will return to our screens for Evander Holyfield's boxing return.

The event will take place on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 - a terrorist attack that killed nearly 3,000 people in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania.

The Trumps will return to the screen and commentate on the main event between Holyfield and Belfort in Hollywood, Florida.

Trump Sr. is no stranger to boxing having outbid Caesars' Palace and the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel to win the rights for Mike Tyson's heavyweight fight against Michael Spinks in 1988.

Tyson made light work of Spinks - the former light heavyweight world champion - inside the opening round to add the Ring Magazine to his WBA and WBC titles at Atlantic City Convention Hall - now known as Boardwalk Hall.

"I love great fighters and great fights," Trump Sr said.

"I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside. You won't want to miss this special event."

Holyfield replaces Oscar De La Hoya after the former six-division world champion was ruled out of the bout after contracting COVID-19.

The card will take place at the Hard Rock Casino with a 7,000 capacity. HBO legend Jim Lampley and Shawn Porter will be calling the main telecast while the Trumps will also commentate on three other fights on the night, including Anderson Silva's battle with Tito Ortiz.

The pay-per-view event will be live and exclusive to Fite.tv with the price being $49.99 in North America and $13.99 (£9.99) in the UK.

Trump Sr. - a billionaire businessman - held one term in the White House but got voted out for Democrat Joe Biden in 2020.

Australian boxing author Alex McClintock said: "If you ever feel like things are going badly, remember Donald Trump went from president of the United States to commentator on a novelty boxing match in Florida between two guys with a combined age of 102 in less than nine months."
