Holt-Torres III signed for December 13 on Showtime

New, comments

Dan Rafael got the scoop last night that Kendall Holt and Ricardo Torres will hook up for a third time to settle the score on December 13 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. This fight will be in Holt's backyard -- the first one came in Colombia, Torres' home country, and the second was fought in Vegas.

You likely remember the second bout, a stunning one-round affair that ended in 61 seconds. Holt was knocked down, but stormed back to stop Torres on a beautiful finishing punch...which had been preceded by a brutal clash of heads. It happens. The first fight was no less controversial, with Holt being hit with beer bottles in an unsafe, uncontrolled environment.

It'll be the same day as Klitschko-Povetkin, but with HBO airing that one live (I think, anyway) sometime in the late afternoon, there'll be plenty of time for this "special ShoBox" event in the late evening. Should be a fun day, and I'm really looking forward to this fight.
