THE LOWDOWN

Evander Holyfield (44-10-2) enjoyed a glittering boxing career back in his day but he last fought back in 2011. His return is an unexpected one and the American heavyweight will be hoping it is not short-lived. The former world champion has nothing left to prove in the ring but he will want to put on a show here with this potentially his last ever fight.

Vitor Belfort (1-0) made his name in MMA but he will get his name up in lights in the boxing ring in this bout with the legendary Evander Holyfield. The Brazilian overcame compatriot Josemario Neves on his one previous outing but that came back in 2006 and very little can be taken from that, although the 44-year-old still looks in very good physical condition.

THE PREDICTION

Evander Holyfield makes a surprise return to the boxing ring after a ten-year absence as he takes on Vitor Belfort. The MMA fighter will be eager to utilise his 14-year age difference in this bout and he could prove too much for Holyfield despite his lack of boxing experience. Belfort looks in great condition and with Holyfield looking far from it at 58-years-old, there are serious doubts surrounding his ability to last here with the Brazilian able to claim the victory.
