Maryland’s undefeated light-middleweight prospect, Alantez “Sly as A” Fox (8-0-1, 4 KOs), makes a quick return to the ring when he faces in-state rival Julius Kennedy (7-2-1, 3 KOs) on January 12, 2013. The 6-round bout will take place at the Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, Maryland as both fighters will have hometown fans cheering them on.
Fox, who stands 6’5, brings a unique look to the boxing ring with his enormous height and reach advantages. In his last fight on December 8th, Fox demolished veteran Jimmy LeBlanc via first round TKO. Promoted by Boxing 360, Fox is looking forward to a busy 2013.
“As promised, my promoter Mario Yagobi is keeping me active,” Fox said. “I just fought earlier this month and now I have another fight scheduled for January. The more I fight the better and more comfortable I feel in the ring. I’m happy to be fighting under the Boxing 360 banner and I feel together we will make some big noise next year. I’ll be ready to go every time my name is called.”
“What I love about Fox is he’s the type of fighter that will take on all challenges,” said Boxing 360 promoter Mario Yagobi. “I have big plans for Alantez and I can see him fighting for a regional title by the later part of 2013. There is no doubt in my mind the he has all the tools to become a world champion. He’s a great addition to Boxing 360.”
