“I love great fighters and great fights,” the 45th President said in the promotion release. “I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside. You won’t want to miss this special event.”

Trump, who had hosted many boxing matches in the 1980s and 1990s at his casinos in Atlantic City, New Jersey, will commentate his first fight since leaving the White House in January.

The Triller Fight Club pay-per-view broadcast begins on Saturday, Sept. 11 at 7:00 p.m. EST. Viewers can stream the event on Thriller PPV, which is priced at $49.99 for the fight.
