Triller aims to rebook Oscar De La Hoya vs Vitor Belfort in a event called “The Revenge”

By Harry Kettle - September 21, 2021

Triller’s Ryan Kavanaugh has confirmed that they are in talks to rebook Oscar De La Hoya vs Vitor Belfort for Thanksgiving weekend.

Oscar De La Hoya

De La Hoya was initially supposed to take on Belfort earlier this month instead of Evander Holyfield, but was forced to pull out of the contest after coming down with a serious case of COVID-19. Belfort went on to demolish Holyfield inside the first round in what many called a “sideshow” fight that never should’ve taken place.

Alas, folks can now look ahead to the future – and they can consider a world in which we do get to see De La Hoya climb back into the ring to take on the always-dangerous Vitor.

If it does go down on Thanksgiving weekend as Kavanaugh intends, the date will likely be November 27 – and it’ll probably head back to the west coast in California, provided they’re still happy to sanction it.

The fight will have the title of “The Revenge” as De La Hoya attempts to avenge fellow pro boxing legend Evander Holyfield.
