Donald Trump will earn more than former boxing champ Evander Holyfield to call his fight this weekend.
The former U.S. President is bragging about making an “obscene” amount of cash for calling the fight – and the deal comes with a G-5 private jet.
Multiple sources tell TMZ, Trump says he’s making an “obscene” amount of money providing “live, alternative commentary” when Evander Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs) takes on MMA star Vitor Belfort, 44.
According to TMZ, Triller, the media company behind the event, is paying “millions” for Trump’s blow-by-blow analysis.
And there’s a huge perk, in addition to the bank vault of cash. Trump, 75, says Triller is providing him with a G-5 jet to take him back and forth from the Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida to his home in West Palm Beach (about a 10 minute flight).
It’s possible that Trump will take the jet for a joyride to New York City earlier in the day to commemorate 9/11, TMZ says.
Donald Trump Jr. will join his father at ringside to call the fight. It isn’t clear how much Trump Jr. will earn.
Holyfield, 58, hasn’t fought since a 10th round TKO win over Brian Nielsen in 2011. The Atlanta resident stepped in for champion boxer Oscar de la Hoya at the last minute when Oscar was hospitalized with Covid-19.
A proposed fight with former champ Mike Tyson was scrapped earlier this year.
Not everyone is happy that Trump will be calling the fight on September 11 — also known as the day the Twin Towers fell during a terrorist attack in NYC.
Some people are downright angry that Trump is still in such high demand when they hate him and want him to disappear from the limelight.
Trump’s popularity is still a bone of contention to many Democrats who are dismayed by his continued influence in the GOP party.
