    35 years old - nice record with alot of KOs (28-0 & 24KOs) over no names.
    Came across his name because he beat Stacy Frazier, who ko'd Dokiwari in the 1st a few years back.

    That's just a goofy nickname "The Real Touch of Sleep".
    It's like a diss to DaVarryl Williamson ("Touch of Sleep"), but such a random one at that.

    Not like "The Real Lights Out".... this guy is setting his target not low, but certainly not too high.

    They are setting up a fight for him against JD Champman. Would be a step up for both guys.

    Worse than "Ding-a-ling Man"...?

    Montiel's nickname isn't better, it translates to: "The KO Cutie."

    At 35 he better start stepping it up real quick.

    I've seen Champman fight before.
    Never seen Holmes fight, but a SD against Zumbrum is kind of revealing.

    The funniest thing about Donnell Holmes may be the war going on between him and 39 year-old DaVarryl
