Holmes landed hard straight shots from the southpaw stance on Foster, who had to retire on the stool after the 2nd round with a possible broken nose.
“I am very happy to get back in the ring and get some of the rust off,” said the victorious Holmes. “Hopefully my promoters can put me right back because I want to make up for lost time. It’s only a matter of time when everyone in boxing will know the name, Ardreal “Bossman” Holmes! “
Holmes is managed by Split-T Management, and CEO David McWater was very happy to have 6’2″ junior middleweight prospect back in the ring.
“Ardreal did what I expected him to do, which was impress the fans with an impressive stoppage. He has the frame, skills and power to win titles in 4 weight divisions and I expect him to do just that.”
