Holt set for eliminator

Former world champion Kendall Holt of Paterson, N.J. is in an IBF eliminator bout when he takes on Kaizer ‘The Hammer’ Mabuza of Johannesburg on Saturday night in a sold-out ballroom at Bally’s Atlantic City. Holt, now handled by Brandon Jacobs of the NY Giants, is a former junior welterweight world champion. This is Holt’s first bout since he cracked and knocked down Timothy Bradley twice – the first knockdown was on a left hook which sent Bradley flat onto his back in the first round. Holt knocked down Bradley again in the 12th, although Bradley battled and won the world title on points. Mabuza has won seven straight bouts and is coming off a points win over 23-0 Sergey Fedchenko in the Ukraine. The Holt vs. Mabuzza bout is being taped by FSN and highlights are expected to be on Top Rank Live! The Top Rank Live! telecast on FSN will be on the air Saturday night 10 pm eastern/7 pm pacific.
