This is a real nice main event for a Friday Night Fights card, and Holt vs. Coleman should prove to not only be an intriguing bout with major implications for both men and their standings in the division, but it should also hopefully be a very exciting contest as well. One notable fact about this fight which has been generating some buzz is that Roy Jones Jr. will be working Kendall Holt’s corner as his chief second. Also, last year on Friday Night Fights, Holt put together a Knockout of the Year type effort, so we’ll see if he can replicate that kind of excitement once again.
