Kendall Holt on training with Jesse Reid...

"Right now I’m feeling real good about my progress with Jesse Reid during this training camp. He pushes me real hard and that’s what I need to be successful in this fight. I’m on weight and I’m looking extremely great in sparring. Jesse is a great trainer and I’m working harmoniously with him."

 

Kendall Holt on training in Los Angeles...

"I’ve come out to L.A. for this training camp for a couple of reasons. One, I wanted to get away from the some of the distractions that sometimes get in the way when I train at home. Second I wanted to spar with top level sparring partners and L.A. is loaded with great talent."

 

Kendall Holt on sparring...

"I’ve been sparring with some of the best in Shane Mosley and Lucky Boy Omotoso who are giving me great work. Everyone out here in L.A. brings rough and rugged sparring that I’m going to need to get ready for Lamont. Words can’t describe how grueling it is training with these guys but that’s what’s going to get me to the top.

 

Kendall Holt on coming off an eleventh month layoff after shoulder surgery...

"My shoulder is 100% healthy and I feel fantastic. The explosiveness is there and I’m punching harder than ever. Now that I’m back punching at full strength, I feel more confident in my ability to back up my opponents. I feel like a whole new man."
