BREAKING NEWS: Triller Defaults On Payment To Evander Holyfield
Legendary boxer Evander Holyfield has filed for arbitration against Triller.
Triller was supposed to deliver payments to Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs), but those payments have been delayed and not received.
Arbitration is a private process where disputing parties agree that one or more individuals – also called arbitrators – can decide on a resolution after seeing evidence and hearing arguments. This resolution procedure is an alternative to going to court.
This isn’t the first time Triller has had issues with boxers.
In early June, Roy Jones Jr. claimed Triller didn’t pay him in full for the one-on-one exhibition fight against Mike Tyson in November 2020.
In March, Tyson also revealed that he was no longer in business with Triller, saying “I will never do another event or any business with Triller.”
Triller also had issues with the delayed-more-than-once Teofimo Lopez versus George Kambosos fight.
In February, they won the purse bid for Lopez with a $6.02 million bid. The bout has finally been set for October 5 at the Hulu Theater in New York.
About two weeks after Jones’ claim that Triller didn’t pay him, Holyfield and Tyson were reportedly on standby to fill in the Lopez-Kambosos fight, which was postponed because Lopez had tested positive for Covid-19.
