Trump suggested he could beat Biden in the boxing ring if he entered the fight, saying it would be the easiest fight.
Former US President Donald Trump on September 9 called a press conference before this weekend’s fight between former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield and former UFC lightweight boxing champion Vitor Belfort.
“If you had to box against someone on 9/11, who would you fight and what would the fight look like?” one person asked the former president.
“If I had to fight someone, I think maybe my easiest fight would be with Joe Biden. I think he’s going to be taken down very, very quickly,” Trump replied. “No, I think Biden will be taken out in the first few seconds.”
The former president’s words drew laughter and applause from the boxers and others attending the press conference.
Trump, 75, will join his eldest son Donald Trump Jr., commenting on the match broadcast as a pay-to-watch. The event was held at the Seminole Hard Rock hotel and casino complex in Florida, and was attended by many stars.
Trump is very familiar with boxing matches. In the 1980s and 1990s, Trump hosted boxing events across the casinos he owned. Two of the most famous matches that Trump organized were Mike Tyson’s knockout victory over Larry Holmes and Michael Spinks in 1988. Besides, he also hosted the classic match between Holyfield and George Foreman in 1991.
