Irv Da God and Sticky Fingaz dish the dirt on Vitor Belfort, Evander Holyfield and Triller Fight Club

Irv Da God and Sticky Fingaz talk about Vitor Belfort, Evander Holyfield and Triller Fight Club

WARNING: This is no ordinary interview.

Sticky Fingaz, real name Kirk Jones, gets us started: "Hey yo, this is Sticky Fingaz," before Irv Da God - aka Derrick Duke - interjects: "And it's your boy Irv Da God." 

"We're here with GIVEMESPORT, we feel it, give us all the sports," they both say in unison, before bursting into fits of laughter. 

I'm about as confused as you are right now, but it gets better, I promise. They may come across as a pair of impractical jokers, but trust me there's a lot more to them than first meets the eye. 

From performing in front of former US presidents to starring in major Hollywood blockbuster movies, these two street artists have been there, done it, and worn the t-shirt (or been forced to change them, but more on that later).   

So it should come as no surprise then that they are open to trying new things, such as performing their original single 'Fearless' during the ring-walk to Vitor Belfort's exhibition bout with Evander Holyfield at Triller Fight Club 3 on September 11. 

The American rappers wrote the lyrics to pay tribute to 'The Phenom' in association with cryptocurrency $LITH Token.

Both men also starred in the popular music video to accompany the track, which currently has amassed over one million views on WorldStarHipHop.

Vitor Belfort won the exhibition match against Evander Holyfield via technical knockout

A native of Brazil, Belfort is considered by many to be one of the greatest champions in UFC history.

Holyfield, 58, is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1984 to 2011. He remains the only boxer in history to win the undisputed championship in two weight classes in the three belt era.  

But despite this, Duke felt Holyfield never really stood much chance against Belfort, as he noticed he 'had delayed reactions to everything'. The Brazilian won the exhibition match via technical knockout.

"I mean, this is what I saw," he says. "I felt like Vitor was testing his strength, just like any animal would, and once he seen it was nothing, he went full force.

"He went full force at Holyfield because Holyfield wasn't ready, Holyfield had delayed reactions to everything, and he slipped, so he was already imbalanced.

"Vitor saw the perfect opportunity to execute and he did just that," he explained.

Jones adds: "But you know, look, it's a new day and age.

"No disrespect to Holyfield, it's a new day and age.

"It's Triller, it's new fighters, it's a new era, money is not even a factor anymore."  

Jones, a self-confessed fan of Mike Tyson, feels Triller Fight Club has helped to breathe new life into a sport which has often been accused of falling behind the times.

"They're making boxing and fighting exciting again," he says. 

"I'm a huge Mike Tyson fan, my little brother X-1 was signed to Mike Tyson Records, so we used to go to dozens and dozens of Mike Tyson fights because he'd invite us, private jets and all that. 

"After he left boxing, for me personally, I was over it, I turned to the UFC instead. But now Triller is making combat sports exciting again, they're getting the viewers' eyes engaged on their screen."

But don't get it twisted - exhibition or not, boxing is after all still a dangerous sport, as Jones soon found out to his dismay. 

"We got second row seats, I got blood all over me," the 47-year-old says indignantly. 

"It was speckles, it was speckles, I wasn't covered," he quickly backtracks, before adding: "It was just a light shower." 

In honour of “The Phenom”, and available exclusively on WorldStarHipHop, $LITH presents the original track and video, Fearless, with vocals by Irv Da God, rap legend Sticky Fingaz and Bizkit, on the hook.
