Former President Donald Trump has signed a contract to provide commentary on a “gamecast” of Saturday’s boxing event headlined by Evander Holyfield vs. Vitor Belfort, Triller told ESPN on Tuesday.
His son Donald Trump Jr. will join him at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
“I love great fighters and great fights,” Donald 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.”
The Trumps will call the entire four-fight telecast that also includes Anderson Silva-Tito Ortiz and David Haye-Joe Fournier, according to Triller.
Holyfield, the 58-year-old former heavyweight champion, stepped in on short notice as a replacement for Oscar De La Hoya, who tested positive for COVID-19.
Jim Lampley, the longtime blow-by-blow man for HBO, will call the main telecast alongside former champion Shawn Porter. Viewers will have the option to purchase either the main telecast or the Trump “gamecast” for $49.99.
For that $49.99, you also get sold horse paste, other fake medicines that Trump would never ingest himself, My Pillow Guy, urgent calls to overthrow the American government, and maybe some “hilarious” jokes about the ladies on the side.
It’s also sad to see Evander Holyfield become such a pathetic figure, but, well, boxing.
