Donald Trump, 75, has claimed he would knock out President Joe Biden, 78, in a boxing match. The 45th President made the comments during the pre-fight press conference for Evander Holyfield’s comeback fight against Vitor Belfort that will be held on Saturday in Florida.

Mr Trump said: “Well, if I had to pick somebody in the world, not only a professional boxer – because I’ll take a pass on the professional boxers, that could be a very dangerous subject.

“I think probably my easiest fight would be Joe Biden because I think he’d go down very, very quickly.

“Very, very quickly.”

The ex-POTUS added: “He once said, ‘Oh, I’d like to take him behind the [gym],’ He’d be in big trouble if he ever did.

“I think Biden would go down within the first few seconds.”

The former President previously called out his successor for a spar during the 2020 US Election.

Trump said: “Of all the people in the world that I could fight, that’s probably the one I’d like to most fight.”

The Republican nominee lost the 2020 race to Biden by 306 electoral college votes to 232.

While a boxing match between Trump and Biden seems unlikely, the White House was once home to a President who was known to pack a punch.

Dwight Eisenhower, America’s 34th President, was said to have known his way around the ropes during his younger years.

Trump’s appearance at the press conference comes before he takes a rather different ringside role.

The former President will be joined by his son, Donald Jr, in providing alternative commentary to Holyfield’s contest against Belfort.

Ex-cruiserweight champion David Haye will also use Saturday’s fight to mount his comeback as he locks horns with Joe Fournier.

The main event will see 58-year-old Evander Holyfield take on Brazilian MMA star Vitor Belfort.

Holyfield last entered the ring in 2011 but is arguably best known for his bouts against fellow American Mike Tyson.

In the second of these contests, Tyson was disqualified after biting off part of Holyfield’s ear.

The 58-year-old was initially set to take on Oscar De La Roya in the ring.

But De La Hoya was forced to withdraw after he said COVID-19 “hit me really hard”.
