Holt: I'll Fight Amir Khan in England, Snatch His Belt

By Ryan Burton caught up with former 140-pound champion Kendall "Rated R" after his first round destruction of Lenin Arroyo at the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan. The fight took place on the Devon Alexander-Timothy Bradley unification undercard.

I asked Holt if he wanted a Tim Bradley rematch next and he told BoxingScene, "Maybe in two or 3 fights down the road. Right now I have my sights set on King Khan!"

WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan has been looking for an opponent for his next fight which takes place in his hometown of Manchester, England on April 16th.

When asked if he was willing to go overseas for the fight, Holt told BoxingScene - "I'm willing!  I'm willing!  We can easily make that fight happen.  I would be more than happy to go to England and snatch his belt. Amir Khan has nothing on me!"

Holt cant just walk back into a title fight, hes gotta beat some good names first. I like the idea of a khan-katsidis fight, would be very exciting and the british crowd would love it
