Brooklyn, N.Y. – “I get mine from the muscle.” – Tevin Farmer
On April 29, Tevin Farmer (24-4-1, 5 KOs) is making his return to the ring and promises to put on a show for all fans in attendance.
“I’m back in the ring, fighting at Liacouras Center, at Temple University, in Philadelphia.”
“I’m focused on pulling out a victory. I plan to go out there, be smart, and have a great performance. I’ve been working hard, grinding, so whatever is going to happen will happen. After my win, we’ll see where it takes me.”
The highly touted southpaw, whose often compared to International Boxing Hall of Fame legend Pernell “Sweet Pea” Whitaker (40-4-1-1, 17 KOs), has been working hard to make his way to through the ranks in hopes of getting an opportunity for fight for a world championship.
Hailing from Philadelphia, a city that’s rich with great boxing tradition, Farmer explained exactly what “I get mine from the muscle” truly means.
“It means I haven’t had help. Yes, I’m currently signed to Lou DiBella (DiBella Entertainment) but before signing with him I didn’t have a big-time promoter during my career. I didn’t have a manager.”
“I’ve had to fight and fight. I’ve had to grind throughout my entire career and that’s where I’m at today. I haven’t had anything handed to me.”
Farmer, the NABF super featherweight champion, is currently ranked at number three in the United States and number twenty-four in the world as the best super featherweight. After watching his stablemate Jason “El Canito” Sosa (20-2-4, 15 KOs/former WBA super featherweight champion) lose a tough fight against the number ranked super featherweight champion in the world Vavsyl Lomachenko (8-1, 6 KOs/WBA, WBO super featherweight champion) and with the emergence of Mayweather Promotions Gervonta Davis (17-0, 16 KOs/IBF super featherweight champion), Farmer has his sights on getting an opportunity to face the best fighters in and around his division.
“Right now I’m focused on me,” Farmer said, “Wherever life takes me.”
“Yes, I am interested in fighting Davis. If I win my fight on April 29 and he wins his fight on May 20, we’ll see if we can make the fight happen.”
“Lomachenko is a very good fighter. He made Nicholas Walters quit. Most people thought that Sosa would get knocked out earlier in the fight. It was a good fight. It was a win-win situation for him (Sosa) regardless. I’m happy with the fact that Sosa went nine rounds.”
