On Monday night, World Boxing News received information that a prominent sports management group had severed ties with Triller.

EAG Sports Management, who represents Tyron Woodley, several NFL stars, and other clients, dropped any association with Triller moving forward.

Although not directly attributed to the Evander Holyfield farce, EAG handed the statement to WBN just 48 hours after the event.

It read: “EAG Sports Management is no longer working with Triller FIght Club or Triller effective immediately.”

They gave no other reasoning as Triller prepares for their next boxing entertainment event on Tuesday evening.

Their reputation in boxing has taken a battering over the past few days after Holyfield was beaten down in just 109 seconds by Vitor Belfort.

Letting a heavyweight legend go out like that at the age of 58 when he had no business being inside the ring has not got down well in the boxing community.

As Triller aims to bounce back, music will probably overshadow the next card, which features fighters with a combined forty losses between them.

It will be a welcome distraction for those boxing fans against the Holyfield controversy.
