D-Hop gasn't stepped up with some serious competition in a while. With that being said, this is his first major fight, so I can see him step his game up. I like Holt, but I gotta go with the underdog...D-Hop by close decision.
Before Holt's interview with Farhood, the SHOWTIME cameras picked up this gem: "Ricardo Torres, pulling a stunt like this so close to the fight," said Holt. "They had to get Demetrius Hopkins, who I like, to fill in. He's a good fighter who is technically sound. But, because of Ricardo Torres – and I want all the Demetrius Hopkins fans to blame Ricardo Torres – because now Hopkins has to face me and now his "0" must go. I don't want everybody to blame me and be mad at Christmas time because Demetrius Hopkins doesn't have a goose egg anymore because he has his first loss."
