Triller odds: Evander Holyfield early betting favorite to whoop Vitor Belfort on Sept. 11

Oscar De La Hoya contracted COVID-19 just days before his return to “sweet science,” so Triller Fight Club matchmakers were forced to send former UFC champion Vitor Belfort into battle with geriatric boxer Evander. Holyfield.

“The Phenom” jumped to be an early favorite against the smaller “Golden Boy”, but against the larger “Real Deal” the Brazilian is now reduced to the role of underdog. Holyfield opened from -140 to +110 for Belfort, according to BetOnline.ag.

“Evander Holyfield is in better shape today than the last time he fought and this heavyweight fight is sure to be something for the history books,” Triller spokesman Ryan Kavanaugh said in a recent press release.

It will certainly be history if Holyfield croaks. Not to be a Sour Susan, but the aging “Real Deal” turns 59 next month and hasn’t competed in over a decade. That may explain why the California State Athletic Commission told Triller to pack.

Goodbye Los Angeles, hello Hollywood.
