HOLLYWOOD, FL – With his dominant 12 round win over rugged contender Jose Luis Cruz in June, unbeaten Shamone Alvarez showed that he was ready for prime time in the ultra-competitive welterweight division. On Friday, August 31st, ‘The Truth’ will look to build on the biggest win of his career when he defends his NABO title at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
“Shamone Alvarez is a fighter who has paid his dues in this game and now he’s ready to reap the benefits of his hard work by making a run at the world title,” said Leon Margules, Executive Director of Seminole Warriors Boxing. “This should be a great fight for the Atlantic City fans.”

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – In an exciting, hard-fought bout, once-beaten Kendall “Rated R” Holt dealt previously undefeated Isaac Hlatshwayo his first loss and captured the vacant North American Boxing Organization (NABO) super lightweight title with a super impressive, 12-round unanimous decision in Friday’s main event on “ShoBox : The New Generation.” Holt scored three knockdowns and won going away.
In a battle of unbeaten welterweights on the Duva Boxing-promoted co-feature at Bally’s Casino Ballroom, Shamone Alvarez was credited with a flash knockdown in the first-round en route to winning a majority eight-round decision over fast-closing Enrique Gutierrez. The doubleheader aired on SHOWTIME at 11 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the west coast).
Holt (21-1, 13 KO’s) of Paterson, N.J., was making his first start in 14 months, but he showed no signs of ring rust. He dropped the world-ranked Hlatshwayo once in the ninth, 11th and 12 rounds en route to winning by the scores of 119-106 twice and 116-109.
