A third bout between junior welterweight titlist Kendall Holt and ex-beltholder Ricardo Torres is under heavy discussion. Top Rank promoter Bob Arum told ESPN.com that he's talking with Showtime about putting the fight together for December and offers have been extended to both fighters. Arum said the target date is Dec. 5 in Las Vegas on the eve of De La Hoya-Pacquiao. In their first meeting in Torres' native Colombia in September 2007, Torres retained a belt via controversial 11th-round TKO in a fight in which fans pelted the ring all night with liquid and debris. In the July rematch in Las Vegas, Holt claimed the title with a savage first-round knockout in a wild, 61-second fight. Holt (24-2, 13 KOs) was down twice before knocking Torres (32-2, 28 KOs) cold after an accidental head butt him. Showtime was booked for the rest of the year, but Arum said that when Joan Guzman failed to make weight for his fight last week with Nate Campbell, it meant Showtime, which didn't have to pay for it, suddenly had money left in the budget. "I guess fortunately for us, Guzman saved them a lot of money," Arum said.

If Holt comes out and boxes he will win, if he comes out like last time to slug he will get knocked out... But no matter what this will be a entertaining fight.

I know know know for a fact that Holt does not want to fight Torres again. He knows the power behind Torres's punches and doesn't want to take the chance.

I don't think this fight is going to happen, I think Holt will outprice himself or somehow get away from this fight. That's just a hunch I have about this :dunno:

Holt would fight Torres again. For the simple fact that it's the fight that would pay him the most
