Holt is a Little Confused By Bradley-Peterson Rematch

By Keith Idec

Kendall Holt has nothing against Timothy Bradley or Lamont Peterson.

The former WBO junior welterweight champion is a little confused, however, by the tentative scheduling of their 12-round rematch. Representatives for Bradley (29-0, 12 KOs, 1 NC), of Indio, Calif., and Peterson (30-1-1, 15 KOs), of Washington, D.C., were finalizing contractual terms Thursday night for a Dec. 15 fight at Marlins Park in Miami.

Bradley dominated Peterson in their first fight, contested before a sparse crowd that barely exceeded 1,000 nearly three years ago in small casino ballroom in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Holt (28-5, 16 KOs), a Paterson native and Woodland Park resident, dropped Bradley twice in a much more competitive fight which Bradley won by unanimous decision months earlier at Bell Centre in Montreal, in front of a crowd that approached 8,000.

"I’d love to get the rematch with Bradley if he beats Peterson again," Holt said. "The first fight only went the way it did because I aggravated my hand again in the first round after I hit him with that monstrous left hook [which knocked Bradley on his back]. My hand was injured in preparations for my previous fight, and then again in training for the Bradley fight."

Who isn't confused? It's a pointless rematch.

Bradley broke you down Holt, you hit him with your best and still couldn't manage to win more than those 2 rounds.

Peterson is a cheat and should be banned from boxing
