At Ballys Casino in Atlantic City, junior welterweight contender Kaizer Mabuza (23-6-3, 14 KOs) stopped former champion Kendall Holt (25-4, 13 KOs) in six rounds. After Holt got off to a good start in the first two rounds, Mabuza began to punish Holt over the next couple of rounds with very hard power punches. Holt was unable to come out for the seventh round. The fight was an IBF eliminator. Holt's status as a serious contender might be over after this loss.
