The Brazilian was supposed to fight Oscar De La Hoya in Los Angeles, but the fight was moved to Florida after De La Hoya tested positive for COVID-19 and was replaced by Holyfield.

This is the second time Belfort competes in boxing, as he spent most of his combat sports career in MMA competing under the UFC banner. The 44-year-old last fought in 2018 when he lost to Lyoto Machida via TKO.
