The main event this evening is a catchweight bout between junior welterweights Kendall Holt and Tim Coleman, both looking to hang on as contenders in a competitive division. Holt (27-5, 15 KO) weighed in at 144 pounds, with Coleman (19-2-1, 5 KO) at 143.

For the 30-year-old Holt, a former titleholder, this could be a final chance to get back into the mix for real at 140. He lost his last fight to Danny Garcia on the Hopkins vs Dawson undercard in October, but was competitive in the fight. But a loss to a fringe contender like Coleman, 27, could do in his chances of winning another belt.

Coleman also dropped his last fight, stopped by Vernon Paris in August. The Baltimore native is a solid fighter, but in all candor, should not win tonight. If Holt is focused and prepared, he should be able to take care of business and keep his name out there. But we've seen Holt lose focus in the past.

In the televised co-feature, 24-year-old featherweight prospect Abraham "Chamaco" Lopez (16-0, 12 KO) weighed in at 127 pounds, with Gabriel Tolmajyan (12-1, 3 KO) at 128½. The fight's limit was 127, so Tolmajyan, 25, has to make 135 pounds today.
