Triller Fight Club’s third event has had loads of twists and turns in the build-up, and there’s no bigger twist than Triller’s alternate commentary team for Saturday.
Just when we think Triller is done, they add something else strange to their card.
Triller Fight Club is hosting its third boxing event on Saturday. The card has had loads of issues in the build-up, and was originally set to be a 180-pound catchweight fight between boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya and former UFC champion Vitor Belfort. However, De La Hoya tested positive for COVID-19 last week and was pulled from the card.
As a result, Triller decided to slide in former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield. And move the card from its original California location to Florida on one week’s notice.
Well, more news has come out on the card, as first noticed by our own Josh Evanoff on Twitter, FiteTV has put up an alternate commentary for the event dubbed “Donald Trump -No Holds Barred.” The alternate commentary is included with every purchase for the event and has former President Donald Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. in the broadcast booth. It’s worth noting that Triller has yet to officially announce the commentary team, but the bio on the event reads:
“We are honored to offer a never before seen live commentary from former President Donald Trump and his son, Donald Trump, Jr. They will help us celebrate one of America’s heroes, Olympic medal winner and former heavyweight champion of the world, Evander Holyfield. President Trump has had a long history supporting both boxing and MMA and is uniquely qualified to offer fight commentary from a vastly different perspective, that of someone who is a former President, speaking freely about the country he loves and the amazing fighters competing on this card.”
The normal commentary team notably features the return of HBO commentator Jim Lampley, however, if you don’t want to listen to him or Snoop Dogg. This is your other option for Saturday’s insane card.
