Holt, Marrone Are Triumphant

ATLANTIC CITY – Photos: TOM CASINO/SHOWTIME’s popular fistic series “ShoBox: The New Generation’’ delivers boxing, pure and simple. Friday, in the “ShoBox’’ main event on SHOWTIME, World Boxing Organization (WBO) No-1 ranked junior welterweight contender Kendall Holt out boxed WBO No. 2 Mike Arnaoutis, pure and simple—at Bally’s Atlantic City. Holt won a unanimous 12-round decision. Two judges scored the WBO title elimination bout 118-109. The other had it 117-110..

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.
