In the co-feature, unbeaten heavyweight Mike Marrone registered a majority eight-round decision over previously unbeaten Malachy Farrell. Marrone won by the scores of 78 -74-twice and 78-78.
Holt (22-1, 12 KOs), of Paterson, N.J., boxed and moved effectively in the one-sided bout. He demonstrated, albeit briefly, his superior speed and ability to take power shots from Arnaoutis (17-2-1, nine KOs). In the latter rounds, a desperate Arnaoutis stepped up his attack but it was too little too late. In the end, Arnaoutis simply did not attack enough.
