So this is a thing that’s happening this Saturday night on pay-per-view (ppv), and it’s both hilarious and can’t miss — if only for the sound bites.

ESPN is reporting that, according to video-sharing social networking service Triller, former President Donald Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr., will be providing alternate commentary for the upcoming boxing event featuring former world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield taking on former UFC light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort. 

“I love great fighters and great fights," the elder Trump said. "I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside. You won't want to miss this special event.”

The Trumps are reportedly going to call the action for the full four-fight card. The event also features the sub-main event pitting former UFC legends Anderson Silva versus Tito Ortiz.

According to ESPN, viewers can purchase the ppv and have the option of selecting either commentary from longtime boxing commentator Jim Lampley and former champion Shawn Porter or the alternate Trump “gamecast.”

It’ll be interesting to see which commentary team more people who end up buying the ppv select.
