Donald Trump has called in to the press conference ahead of Evander Holyfield's fight against Vitor Belfort this weekend to say he'd knock-out the current President of the United States Joe Biden 'within the first few seconds' of a fight.
After phoning up, Trump was asked by the press conference's host 'if you had to box somebody on Saturday night, who would it be and what would the fight look?

"Well if I had to pick somebody in the world," the former President replied. "Not only a professional boxer because I'll take a pass on the professional boxer, that can be a very dangerous subject. But if you said I had to box somebody... I think probably my easiest fight would be Joe Biden."
Everybody at the press conference burst into laughter, with Holyfield and Belfort seen cackling away in the background.
"Because I think he'd go down very, very quickly," Trump continued. "Very, very quickly. You know he once said 'oh I'd like to take him behind the bar' and he'd be in big trouble if he ever did.
I think Biden would go down within the first few seconds."
Trump is to commentate on Holyfield and Belfort's fight this Saturday at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The bout is being dubbed as 'the most anticipated heavyweight fight of the year.'
"I love great fighters and great fights," Trump, a former business adviser to the legendary Mike Tyson, said, as quoted by Sky News. "I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside. You don't want to miss this special event."
Holyfield, who remains the only boxer in history to win the undisputed championship in two weight classes in the three belt era, came out of retirement earlier this year, initially for an exhibition bout with Kevin McBride. However, due to Oscar De La Hoya's struggles with coronavirus, Holyfield was put forward for this fight with Belfort on Saturday, in a match sanctioned as professional by The Florida Athletic Commission.
Meanwhile, Belfort, 44, is the current UFC 12 Heavyweight Tournament Champion, as well as a former UFC Light Heayweight Champion.
The pay-per-view of the fight $49.99 in North America and $13.99 in Great Britain.
Will I be watching though? Absolutely.
