Quick Jabs: How Not To Fight The Alphabet Belts; Mickey Bey, Kendall Holt And Other (Former?) ...

Lamont Peterson Retains Jr. Welterweight Belt With 8th Rd TKO of Kendall Holt

Considering that IBF Junior Welterweight Champion Lamont Peterson had been out of the ring for 14 months and it was challenger Kendall Holt’s first fight in 11 months it was understandable why there was some ring rust in the first few rounds of their title bout at the Armory in Washington D.C. on Feb. 22.

I can't promise you that this week's fights will be as adorable as the one in the video above. In fact, it seems downright unlikely. Still, there are a lot of them, so maybe it's possible.
