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.
