Farmer Set For Third Title Defense In Five Months
Tevin Farmer prepares for his third title defense in five months on Friday night as he puts the IBF super featherweight title up against Jono Carroll.
Two days before St. Patrick’s Day, Farmer fights in front of his fellow Philadelphians against the Ireland born Carroll in the main event of a card on DAZN.
“Everybody is talking about who the best is in the division – there’s only one way to tell,” said Farmer of a potential unification fight with Gervonta Davis. “I am ready to fight anyone. My promoters Eddie Hearn and Lou DiBella are ready to make a fight with anyone so whomever has a belt out there – it’s time to put up or shut up.
“It’s my third defense in five months, I’m the most active male World champion in the world and I want it to continue like that. I like working with Eddie, Lou and DAZN and I hope that we can keep doing business for the rest of my career.
“I’m fighting more than anyone and I’m winning. I’ve probably defended my title more times since winning it than some champions that have had the belt for two years.”
