Russian promoter Vladimir Hryunov hopes to reschedule a junior welterweight bout between former 140-pound champion Kendall Holt and Khabib Allakhverdiev for June 27 in Moscow.

The fight was scheduled for June 20 in Moscow, but Holt encountered a visa issue this week and the fight was at least postponed Friday. Patrick English, Holt’s attorney, indicated a little more time could be enough to rectify Holt’s problem and hoped the fight could be rescheduled.

Holt, of Paterson, N.J., was scheduled to fly to Moscow on Wednesday for a 10-round, 140-pound fight against the unbeaten Russian southpaw, whom Hryunov promotes.

Hryunov agreed to pay the 31-year-old Holt (28-5, 16 KOs) a six-figure purse for the opportunity for Allakhverdiev to face a proven American junior welterweight.

The 31-year-old Holt, a former WBO titleholder, is ranked No. 6 by the IBF and No. 5 by the WBO. The 29-year-old Allakhverdiev (16-0, 7 KOs) is ranked No. 11 by the WBA.
