On Sept. 11, another bizarre fight is headed to the boxing ring when Oscar De La Hoya returns to the ring at age 48 to take on former UFC champion Vitor Belfort. Unlike the recent fights that include back-to-back boxing legends, De La Hoya vs. Belfort will not be an exhibition, but a professional competition consisting of eight rounds of two minutes.

De La Hoya has not fought since his fight with Manny Pacquiao in December 2008 when he was forced to retire from the bench. This loss closed De La Hoya’s career at the age of 39-6 and the legacy of one of the biggest stars of his time. After winning a gold medal at the 1992 Olympics, De La Hoya became a professional and won 11 world championships in six weight classes, with many of the best stars and facing the biggest fights of the 1990s and 2000s.

Belfort has only boxed once as a professional, reaching the playoffs in 2006. In his MMA career, Belfort is a former UFC lightweight champion, a doctor who won Randy Couture’s belt in 2004 by winning a stop in less than a minute by cutting fluke on Couture’s eyelid. Belforts lost the Couture title in his next fight and lost three more attempts to win UFC gold, twice in middleweight and once in lightweight.
