Former US President Donald Trump will serve as a boxing commentator for the Triller Fight Club heavyweight boxing match between Vitor Belfort and Evander Holyfield on the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

He will be joined by his son Donald Trump Jr. at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Florida for the Saturday's boxing event, Triller told ESPN on Tuesday.

Trump Sr., who said that people won't want to miss this special event, shared, "I love great fighters and great fights." He is looking forward to seeing the fight and sharing his thoughts ringside. The father-son duo will call the four-fight telecast that also includes David Haye-Joe Fournier and Anderson Silva-Tito Ortiz.

Holyfield, the 58-year-old former heavyweight champion, replaced Oscar De La Hoya, who recently contracted coronavirus. De La Hoya tweeted Friday that despite being fully vaccinated, he had contracted COVID-19 and he won't be able to fight over the weekend.

But just days later, De La Hoya updated his fans on Twitter saying that he was out of the hospital after staying there for three days. He said that COVID-19 hit him really hard. He was in the best shape of his life and he really can't wait to get back in the ring.

While he is on road to recovery, Holyfield will be fighting 44-year-old Belfort, who is a former UFC light heavyweight champion.

Earlier, Triller had roped in celebrity commentators like Snoop Dogg and Pete Davidson. In the 1980s and '90s, Trump hosted several boxing matches at his casinos in New Jersey.

This comes amid the former president frequently teasing another presidential bid without officially announcing it. According to a close aide, Trump is all-but-certain to run for presidency in 2024, reported CNN. Earlier this month when former Trump adviser Jason Miller was asked about the chances of Trump's run again, he said, "I would say somewhere between 99 and 100%. I think he is definitely running in 2024."

Ohio representative Jim Jordan also thinks that Trump is gonna run for it. In the past few months, the former president has been making appearances at several rallies.

Trump has announced another rally that will take place in Perry, Georgia on Sept. 25.
