Russian light welterweight Khabib Allakhverdiev (16-0, 7KOs) is not intimidated by the deadly punching power of his next opponent, highly ranked former champion Kendall Holt (28-5, 16KOs). Khabib respects Holt's power but also feels the former champ is mentally weak. They clash on June 20th in Moscow, Russia.

“The weak side, as it seems to me and my team, is that you can break him psychologically. His strengths are that he’s a technical boxer, he’s tall, you can’t hang around near him after you throw a punch because he’ll reply in the blink of an eye,” Khabib told RIA Novasti.

If Allakhverdiev defeats Holt, he would like to face Zab Judah next. Judah will be ringside as a special guest.

“He’s got very high speed, he’s an experienced boxer too, so he has a lot of good qualities, but you can find the key to any boxer. If we win in the upcoming bout, then we’ll prepare for Zab and learn his weak points," Khabib said.

Kendall is a MONSTER puncher however he did take this fight on short notice and has to travel to Russia where the time difference could take its toll. I hope he goes there early to train and not leave a few days before the fight. Paulie M. was smart to leave for Europe a month in advance to adapt...

Who here has seen khabib fight? Can anybody recommend any good fights to get a good sense of him?

When Khabib gets tagged by Holt we'll see how mentally strong he is. Holt has had better opposition, has above average boxing ability, and has the most devastating power in the division. Holt KO8

I think that Holt can get discouraged in the ring if things aren't going his way. I'm looking forward to seeing how he handles being the this guy's home country. it's on a Wednesday... I'll be watching this one from work! :boxing: bring on Holt-Judah.
