Former President Trump is set to offer live commentary at a boxing event from Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Fla., that falls on the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

FITE, the digital video streaming service carrying the Saturday pay-per-view event, announced that the former president, along with his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., will “offer their perspective” throughout the night, including during the headlining fight between Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort.

Trump said in a statement included in a news release promoting the event, “I love great fighters and great fights.”

“I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside,” he added. “You won’t want to miss this special event.’’

Before entering the Oval Office, Trump hosted a number of boxing matches in the 1980s and 1990s at his casinos in Atlantic City, N.J., during which he developed a friendship with UFC President Dana White.

Holyfield, a 58-year-old retired heavyweight champion, was put into the fight against former UFC champion Belfort, 44, after Oscar De La Hoya tested positive for COVID-19.

The Triller Fight Club event, which will also feature several other UFC matchups, costs $49.99 to stream, according to FITE.
The event will come a year after Trump marked the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks with a moment of silence aboard Air Force One and by delivering remarks in Shanksville, Pa., honoring those who died on Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania the day of the attacks.

This year, President Biden is set to mark the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks with his own visit to Shanksville to remember the 40 passengers and crew who died after diverting the United Airlines flight that attackers had planned to crash into the U.S. Capitol.

Biden and first lady Jill Biden are also scheduled to visit the 9/11 memorials at the former site of the World Trade Center's Twin Towers and at the Pentagon.

9.11当日拳击赛 复出的不仅有霍利斯菲尔德 还有特朗普​

文章来源: hk01 于 2021-09-08 13:30:10 - 新闻取自各大新闻媒体,新闻内容并不代表本网立场!


今年9月11日,是美国911恐袭事件20周年,当日佛罗里达州上演一系列拳击比赛。比起一众现役拳手的正赛,身为“头盘”的一场表演赛,或许更令人期待。

那不止有58岁的霍利斯菲尔德(Evander Holyfield)对战前UFC冠军比尔福特(Vitor Belfort),更将由前总统特朗普(Donald Trump)担任主持和旁述。

原定今年5月由霍利斯菲尔德对泰森的两大传奇世纪大战,经商议后倾不成,最终拉倒,之后改为8月14日对决曾击败泰森的麦比迪(Kevin McBride)。不料同日正赛的轻重量级冠军拳手卢比斯(Teofimo Lopez)感染新冠肺炎病毒,拳赛被迫取消。

经历一波三折,最终霍利斯菲尔德商定与UFC前冠军比尔福特斗上一场,无惧较对手年长14岁的年龄差距。

“我觉得自己犹如28岁”

就算是表演赛,霍利斯菲尔德也连月认真操练,近日在Instagram大骚一身肌肉的照片,“我已经58岁了,感觉仍像28岁时那样。”他表示,十分重视健康和身体状况,也是每天的优先级,“一个健康的心灵和身体,是长寿和快乐的秘方。”

霍利斯菲尔德与泰森的世纪大战搞不成,聪明的拳赛推广人为提升号召力,特别找来前总统特朗普父子客串当主持和现场评述。

今次已非特朗普首次担任拳赛主持,这位曾主持真人秀的前总统,以往亦曾试过串演主持,其中一次正是在他拥有的阿特兰大城赌场中上演。

这场赛事在9月11日举行,当日正是美国911事件20周年,特朗普在新闻稿中称:“我爱伟大的拳手和伟大的拳赛,我期待周六见到他们,并在场边分享我的看法,你不会希望错过这次特别的活动。”

Literally the single most Trump thing Trump has done

'Disgraceful': Former President Trump's niece reacts to what he's doing on 9/11​

(CNN)When I first heard that Donald Trump -- you know, the former President of the United States -- was going to provide ringside commentary for a boxing match featuring former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, I figured it was a prank. When I found out that the event was set for September 11 -- the 20th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on American soil in history -- I was sure it was a prank.

It's not a prank.


That's right: Trump -- alongside his eldest son, Don Jr. -- will be spending the night of September 11 offering commentary on a bout featuring an over-the-hill boxer -- Holyfield is 58! -- on something called Fite (not a typo) TV.

"I love great fighters and great fights," Trump said in announcing his plans for Saturday night. "I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside. You won't want to miss this special event."

To be surprised by any of this is to fundamentally misunderstand who Donald Trump really is.

Trump is, at heart, a showman and a provocateur. He likes to create controversy. He lives in terror of being irrelevant. And he is utterly incapable of feeling empathy -- much less actually having any. (Think that's too harsh? He repeatedly -- as President and before being elected -- demonstrated that he is simply unable to identify with or care about other people's problems.)

Seen through that lens, Trump's decision to sit ringside and offer live commentary of a fight makes total sense.

Trump has long been a fan of both boxing and mixed martial arts.

The billionaire businessman hosted several of Mike Tyson's early fights at his Atlantic City property. Trump was, in fact, a sponsor of one of Tyson's most famous knockouts -- his destruction of Michael Spinks in just 91 seconds.

Trump, in office, paid homage to the sweet science by pardoning Jack Johnson, a former heavyweight champion convicted of transporting a White woman over state lines. Of Johnson, Trump said: "The first African American heavyweight champion of the world, a truly great fighter. Had a tough life."

In 2019, while he was still President, Trump attended a UFC event in New York City at the side of UFC President -- and major supporter -- Dana White."Walking into Madison Square Garden last night with @danawhite for the big @UFC Championship fight was a little bit like walking into a Trump Rally. Plenty of MAGA & KAG present," Trump said in a reference to his supporters. He also attended a UFC event in July in Las Vegas.

See, Trump does what he wants when he wants to do it. People who raise questions about the propriety of, say, doing ringside commentary on the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001, are just "haters" and "losers." Or people who don't get him. Or something.

Here's the thing: It's not a partisan statement to say that a former president should not be at a boxing match -- much less doing commentary on the bout -- on the same day that 2,996 Americans lost their lives 20 years ago. Period.
