With his right eye swelling, Holt managed to make it out of the sixth round and avoid any significant damage in the seventh, as chants of “DC! DC!” and “Pete, Pete, Pete” rose from the crowd at the D.C. Armory.

Peterson finished a fatigued Holt in the eighth, sending the same crowd wild.

“I spent a lot of energy there trying to get him out, but I just had to shut him down and let him come to me,” Peterson said.
