New Mexico fans at Holm’s workout believes she will have a good outcome Saturday.
Mikaela Gonzalez of Santa Fe said, “I think Holly can do it and I’m putting my money on it too.
Andres Leyva of Albuquerque went as far as to predict a finish.
“I think we are going to see something legendary, head kick, second round,” he said.
