Kendall Holt having trouble finding opponent

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Junior welterweight contender Kendall Holt is having difficulty landing an opponent for his February 20 date on "Top Rank Live," which will be broadcast on FOX Sports Net.

Holt said on Facebook today that Tim Coleman -- thought to be the opponent -- has turned down the fight. Coleman (17-1-1, 4 KO) scored a controversial decision win over Mike Arnaoutis in December, a fight I'd actually consider a robbery, and I try not to overuse that.

Holt said his lawyer called today to inform him, and that Nate Campbell also rejected the fight after a Holt-Campbell bout went to purse bid. Holt added that everyone ranked by the IBF has been offered the fight, which would be an eliminator.
