      MATCH WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED TO HAPPEN IN LOS ANGELES

      Saturday's card was originally meant to take place at Staples Center in Los Angeles, with 48-year-old Oscar De La Hoya returning to the ring to face Vitor Belfort in the main event.

      But De La Hoya was recently hospitalized with COVID-19, and the event was moved cross-country to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, in Hollywood, Florida.

      Holyfield, 58, stepped in last minute to replace De La Hoya in the main event.

      TRUMP SAYS A FIGHT WITH BIDEN WOULD END 'VERY, VERY QUICKLY'

      "If you said if I had to box somebody, I think probably my easiest fight would be Joe Biden," former President Donald Trump said when asked who he would want to face in a hypothetical match, according to TMZ.

      "Because I think he'd go down very, very quickly. Very, very quickly."

      It's not the first time the 45th president expresses his desire to physically fight Biden.

      "Of all the people in the world that I could fight, that's probably the one I'd like to most fight," he said during a campaign rally last year, per Business Insider.
