Oscar De La Hoya has finally found an opponent for his long-discussed boxing return.

The former champion, aged 48, will step back into the ring against former UFC star Vitor Belfort on September 11 for Triller Fight Club. As usual, Triller’s event will feature a number of musical guests as the company attempts to continue its disruption of the combat sports space.

Per ESPN, Triller is aiming for the entire weekend to be something of a musical festival, with concerts over the course of Saturday and Sunday. The target city is Las Vegas, Nevada.

It will mark De La Hoya’s first outing since 2008, which saw him lose to Manny Pacquiao. While De La Hoya’s reputation amongst newer fans may be one as a promoter, he was once considered one of boxing’s biggest stars. Belfort is a former UFC light heavyweight champion and owns the most knockouts in the MMA promotion’s history.
