Gentleman Battered

A big victory for the fans, his opponent.

Facing off with karate aficionado and top welterweight Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson, Kevin Holland scored a moral victory by making a good-faith effort to adhere to a gentlemen’s agreement to keep the fight standing during his recent resounding physical defeat. Trading blows with the striking specialist, whose lone submission victory came at a regional promotion 12 years ago, as well as fighting with a badly damaged hand from a first-round punch, Holland attempted just two takedowns across the fight’s opening three rounds, succeeding both times. Although Holland did attempt four takedowns during a fourth-round battering from Thompson, fans appreciated that he waited until the fight was good and lost, and his capabilities severely diminished, before doing any of that coward shit.
