Duva: Holt is a Natural for Cotto!

15.03.05 - Promoter Dino Duva of Duva Boxing says that WBO Super Lightweight champion Miguel Cotto should look no further than nearby Paterson, New Jersey for the opponent for his scheduled June 18 Madison Square Garden appearance. “Kendall Holt is a natural for this fight,” says Duva..

“He lives ten minutes from Manhattan, he’s already fought at the Garden in front of 13,000 people on the Klitschko-Johnson undercard and he just had a sensational KO win on Sho-Box over # 2-ranked David Diaz. He's the perfect opponent for Cotto in NY.”

Holt, 18-1 (12) complete record, looked sensational in dismantling the previously undefeated Diaz (TKO 8) last February. “Demarcus Corley showed what good hand speed can do against Cotto, now add in Kendall’s incredible power and you’ve got a recipe for one heck of a fight. A superstar Puerto Rican champion on the eve of the Puerto Rican Day Parade taking on an up-and-coming local boy at Madison Square Garden and live on HBO.”
