Farmer ready to do it big or not at all

By John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

For years, when Tevin Farmer woke up every morning, the first thought on his mind was his goal to become a world champion. It was like an instinct. It came before breakfast, before he put his feet on the floor, and before he said his first words of the day. It was automatic. In his mind, he visualized that goal and saw himself with a championship belt wrapped around his waist.

On August 3rd, that goal came to be. Farmer made a trip to Australia and returned home with the IBF junior lightweight title, following a dominant win over Billy Dib. After seven years as a pro, all of his hard work had paid off and he had finally achieved his long-standing goal.

So how did it feel when Tevin woke up after becoming champ?

“At first, it was regular,” Farmer said. “You kind of get used to that feeling. It becomes normal. So when you become champion that feeling is still on you, but now it’s just starting to wear off.”

And for world champion Tevin Farmer, 26-4-1, 5 KOs, 1 NC, things are starting to change. With that belt in his possession, everything is new for him, and he needs new goals and new things to visualize. On Saturday night (October 20), for the first time, Tevin Farmer will enter a boxing ring as a world champion when he makes his first title defense against Belfast’s James Tennyson, 22-2, 18 KOs, at the TD Garden in Boston. The bout will be streamed live by DAZN. Continue reading “Farmer ready to do it big or not at all”
