Vitor Belfort

Vítor Belfort is set to fight this September 2021. However, there is something unusual. Belfort is a christian just like Manny Pacquiao.

“I just thank God every day. I’m happy. I’m healthy. Bottom line is it’s just the way you treat life and life will treat you back. Make sure you’re happy with whatever is going on in your life. I think the key of life is just be happy with what’s in front of you and the decision of my life is under God and God knows what’s best for me.”

During their face off with Dela Hoya, the crown never heard any offensive words. But who is Belfort?

From his wikipedia biography it says that, Belfort was born on 1 April 1977, in Rio de Janeiro to a French-Brazilian father and a Greek-Brazilian mother. He is married to Joana Prado, with whom he has three children.They started dating in 2000, broke up but reunited during a reality show in 2002. That same year Belfort appeared with Joana when she was photographed for the Brazilian edition of Playboy.

On 9 January 2004, Vítor’s sister, Priscila Belfort disappeared and the relatives received no information about her. In August 2007, a woman (identified as Elaine Paiva) confessed that she participated in her kidnapping and killing[74] and that she was kidnapped to pay off a four thousand dollar debt Paiva had with drug dealers. Paiva was arrested along with three others alleged to be involved in the kidnapping. The group allegedly buried her body in the woods in Rio de Janeiro where police conducted searches but her remains have never been found. Her family however does not accept this version and believes that Priscila is still alive somewhere. Vítor still maintains a missing page on the Brazilian version of his website.

Belfort speaks Portuguese, English, and Spanish.

He is a devout Christian. Belfort believes the most important key to his success and longevity in the sport is that he is happy with what he does. “I just thank God every day. I’m happy. I’m healthy. Bottom line is it’s just the way you treat life and life will treat you back. Make sure you’re happy with whatever is going on in your life. I think the key of life is just be happy with what’s in front of you and the decision of my life is under God and God knows what’s best for me.” Belfort also appeared in a testimonial video on I Am Second, in which he shares his story of his faith in Jesus Christ.

Belfort appears in the video for the song “I’m Down” by The Almost.

On April 26, 2018, Belfort became a naturalized American citizen.

“Tank” Davis retains WBA lightweight after UD win over Cruz

Gervonta “Tank” Davis may have fought his hardest fight so far in his boxing career but
he still stood out as the best.
He won over Mexican Isaac Cruz via unanimous decision to remain the WBA world
lightweight champion.
All three judges scored the fight, 116-112, 115-113, 115-113, all in favor of Davis.
It was the first time Davis went through the full rounds in his professional career.
However, he revealed that the reason for it was he injured his left hand midway through
the main event fight.
“I hurt my left hand in probably the sixth round but I got through it. It’s shaking but it is
what it is, that’s what comes with the spo of the head. I messed it up.
“I felt that as the fight was going on and on, he was breaking down, but I hurt my hand
so I couldn’t get him out of there,” Davis said on the post-fight press conference.
Floyd Mayweather Jr., his mentor, was also present to watch the fight.
