By Keith Idec

Former WBO junior welterweight champ Kendall Holt will face an undetermined opponent on the Sergio Martinez-Sergiy Dzinziruk undercard on March 12. Martinez-Dzinziruk takes places at Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Conn. If Holt (26-4, 14 KOs), a Paterson native and Woodland Park resident, wins that non-televised bout he is likely to face former lightweight champ Julio Diaz (38-6, 27 KOs) in an ESPN2 main event May 13 at a site to be determined.

Diaz has been on a little run lately. Holt better watch his shiit, cuz he might get bombed out again.

Diaz/Holt and Lemieux/Rubio are both good fights for ESPN FNF.

Very nice Crossroads fight/Retirement fight. I expect Holt will win, but I'll be cheering for Diaz.
