Evander Holyfield vs Vitor Belfort fight breakdown
Vitor Belfort has been more active compared to Evander Holyfield who had his last boxing match in 2011. However, Holyfield is wat more experienced and skillful when it comes to boxing. Though Belfort is a lethal striker inside the MMA ring it’s unlikely that he will outbox Holyfield in a boxing match.
But, Belfort packs serious power in his punches and this can be a huge factor in this fight. Though Evander Holyfield is in phenomenal shape we don’t know whether he can go toe to toe with Belfort after such a long hiatus. We did see Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr in the boxing ring not so long ago.
And though it was entertaining to watch the boxing legends compete again they are not as good as once they were. So an argument can be made that Vitor Belfort might hurt Holyfield and even finish the fight.
However, Evander Holyfield should be the favorite going into the fight because of his experience and skill inside the boxing ring.
