As Trump is getting ready to commentate for the big Holyfield vs. Belfort boxing match, he took some questions from the press.
During the recent promotion of the Holyfield vs. Belfort boxing match, a reporter from USA Today asked Trump “if you had to box somebody on Saturday who will it be?”.
As expected Trump replied “my easiest fight would be Joe Biden and he would go down pretty quickly”.
He then stated remember when he said “he would like to take me around the barn?”.
Trump continued his thought by saying Biden wouldn’t even be able to last more than a couple second on the ring with him.
TRUMP: “If I had to box somebody, I think probably my easiest fight would be Joe Biden. I think he would go down very, very quickly. Very, very quickly…I think Biden would go down in the first few seconds.”

The Daily Mail had more on the story
Donald Trump will host and commentate on a September 11 boxing match between Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort in Hollywood, Florida.
The match will take place at The Seminole Hard Rock Casino on Saturday, with boxing fans able to tune in to watch on TV for $49.95.
The new venture was announced on Tuesday for the former president with the event being called ‘The Most Anticipated Heavyweight Fight of The Year.’
Here’s what Biden said a few months ago and is what Trump referred to in his interview:
The New York Post didn’t stay silent and shared these details:
President Donald Trump was defeated by Joe Biden at the ballot box last year, but the 45th president is confident he would beat his political rival in the boxing ring if the chance arose.
Trump called in Thursday to a press conference ahead of Saturday’s fight between former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield and former UFC light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort and was asked: “If you had to box somebody on Saturday night, who would it be and what would the fight look like?”
“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,” Trump answered, “but if I had to box somebody, I think probably my easiest fight would be Joe Biden, because I think he’d go down very, very quickly. Very, very quickly.
“You know, he once said, ‘Oh, I’d like to take him behind the bar,’ ” added Trump, referencing the then-vice president’s 2016 statement that he would like to take Trump “behind the gym.”
That would be the biggest fight of the century if Trump and Biden were ever to be in the ring but we all know that fight will never happen because Biden would get knocked out and probably never wake back up.
