“It was a step up in how I won the fight,”said Farmer, “He was tough as expected and he came to fight.”

Farmer believes that featherweight is a weight that will suit him just fine.

“I know if I get 1 or 2 more fights at this weight, I will be where I need to be.”

This was the 8th consecutive win for Farmer and he knows that bigger fights are on the horizon.

“I need to keep on winning and win the way I have been. I feel the big change in me is that I believe that if you work hard, stay dedicated and do the right things in and out of the ring, then the winning comes easy.”

Farmer has been one of the busiest fighters around as the eight wins came in under 12 months and he plans to keep up the same work scheduled for 2014.

“I already told my manager that I am ready to fight ASAP.”

Said Manager, Mark Cipparone, “We are very proud for Tevin. He continues to get better with each performance and we are seeking the best possible fights for him.”
