Kendall Holt Blasts Julio Diaz Away in Three Rounds

By Mark Vester

Chumash Casino, Santa Ynez, California - In a crossroads battle of former champions, Kendall Holt (27-4, 15KOs) knocked out Julio Diaz (38-7, 27KOs) in the third round of a welterweight contes. Holt landed two good rights in the first round. There was a clash of heads that opened up a cut above the left eye of Diaz. The second round was even but they were mixing it up in the third and Holt landed a counter left hook that nearly put Diaz to sleep. He barely beat the count and the referee stopped the fight.

Bantamweight prospect Daniel Roman (2-0, 1KOs) dropped Alfredo Madrigal (1-1) very hard with a hook to the body in the second round, but couldn't finish him off and was forced to go the four round distance. Roman wins a four round unanimous decision with all three judges scoring it 40-35.

Big punching junior middleweight Jonathan Gonzalez (13-0, 13KOs), in his toughest fight to date, stopped Rudy Cisneros (12-3, 11KOs) in the seventh round. Gonzalez and Cisneros traded a lot of power punches. After several rounds of big trades, Gonzalez began to wear Cisneros down and started battering him against the ropes. The corner of Cisneros threw in the towel, but the ref's back was turned and he didn't notice the towel until a member of the California State Athletic Commission notified him.

That was a great left hook holt hit diaz with. I didn't think the referee was going to let diaz to continue with that cut from the headbutt.
