Well, you can't really blame the matchmakers tonight. On paper, Kendall Holt vs Tim Coleman was a perfectly fine Friday Night Fights main event, and should have been a decent action fight.

Instead, we got a complete blowout, as Holt finished off Coleman in two rounds, knocking him down hard on a left hook to the liver at the end of round one, at which point Coleman mentally checked out of the fight.

In the second round, Coleman gave a half-hearted effort, but when Holt came forward and threw punches, Coleman covered up, backed down, and took knees, more or less, three times before the Coleman corner mercifully stopped the non-event, as the fighter obviously wanted out of there.

That may be the last time we see Coleman (19-3-1, 5 KO) in the ring, as he "trained" himself for this fight and clearly had nothing in the tank. Holt improves to 28-5 (16 KO), and keeps himself in the mix at 140 pounds, where he said after the fight he is going to stay.

In the featherweight co-feature, Abraham Lopez stayed undefeated in what was fairly close to a robbery win over Gabriel Tolmajyan. Bad Left Hook had it 68-65 into the final round, at which point I tuned out to watch Lehigh finish off Duke, but if I'd given the final round to Lopez, that would have been 77-75 for Tolmajyan, which is what ESPN's Teddy Atlas had. I don't guess it's impossible to argue a 77-75 win for Lopez, and a draw seems pretty reasonable to me, really.

But the official scores were two silly 78-74 cards, and one completely and utterly ridiculous 79-73 card. Lopez (17-0, 12 KO) now moves on to a July date with Gary Russell Jr, which I can't wait to be hyped as a "step up" for Russell because Lopez is undefeated.
