Oscar De La Hoya, who won 11 world titles in six different weight classes, will take on former UFC champion Vitor Belfort in an exhibition match on Sept. 11, according to The Athletic.
The Triller event will likely happen in Las Vegas, and both fighters are expected to wear 12-ounce gloves. It will be De La Hoya’s first fight since 2008 when he suffered an eight-round loss to Manny Pacquiao.
Belfort, on the other hand, last fought in the UFC back in May of 2018, and he lost to Lyoto Machida. Last month, Belfort said that he was interested in fighting De La Hoya. He has only fought in one boxing match in his career, which took place in April 2006 when he knocked out Josemario Neves.
