Default Re: Lamont Peterson vs. Kendall Holt

His most dominant performances come against cuties with feather-fists (Blain, Castaneda, Brown)

...and Holt is an early knockout specialist, at his most dangerous in the first 9 minutes of action.

That 2/1 doesn't look so unappealing... (now that I've gone all in on the guy I'm starting to think might get blitzed )
Peterson should win. Holt's only real chance is an early KO and i don't see him doing that. And once that's out the window, he'll probably get discouraged and get outworked. Peterson has a warrior's heart while Holt's heart is questionable.
