Evander Holyfield vs Vitor Belfort Betting Analysis

I can see why fans of either boxing or MMA might like the fighters. Evander hasn’t had a boxing match in 10 years, but he won that one.

He has been training for a legendary fight with Mike Tyson, a man he beat twice. This man is 58 years old but you can tell that his boxing skills are still there.

Will Vitor Belfort Shock The Boxing Community?

As for the fighter who used to be the UFC light heavyweight champion (2004), he has been fighting more recently. The fighter had a hard time at the end of his career and lost five of his last seven fights, all by knockout. But this fight with Kelvin Gastelum was changed to a no-contest.

Vitor is 14 years younger than Holyfield. This could make him faster in the ring. But Vitor might not be good at boxing. I think that the odds are correct because of this.

Vitor Belfort Vs. Evander Holyfield Betting Preview

When Vitor Belfort is at his best, he will wait to unleash his strikes. He can be patient until he sees an opening. But as he got older, the opportunities for him to do this became fewer and further apart.

During his peak, which occurred between 2004 and 2009, the southpaw was aided with TRT (testosterone replacement therapy), hence earning him the moniker Trtitor, which aided in making those flurries more deadly.

Online Boxing Betting Pick & Prediction: Evander Holyfield (-120)

I think Vitor may have the speed advantage. But Evander will most likely win because he is boxing great. Vitor might have some success sometimes, but more often than not, Holyfield’s punches will be stopped by his gloves and he’ll counter with heavy punches.

In the end, I think the fight will go on for a long time and there might not be much action. Holyfield’s experience in the ring, his boxing ability, and intelligence will make a difference as he hits Belfort more often than he does.
