Evander Holyfield loses comeback fight in first round

Former world champion boxer Evander Holyfield stepped back in the ring for the first time in over a decade.

But it didn’t go quite to plan for the 58-year-old.

Evander Holyfield suffered a first-round technical knockout to former UFC fighter Vitor Belfort.

The fight took place on Saturday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Florida.

Belfort, 44 attacked Holyfield with a succession of quick punches early on, pinning him against the ropes.

And, having not landed a punch of his own, Holyfield was knocked to the canvas twice.

The referee then called an end to the fight in the first round.

He returned to boxing with just over a week’s notice to replace Oscar De La Hoya, who contracted Covid-19.
