“Training has been pretty good, and everything is coming together, I am very excited for this fight,” said Fox.

After this fight, Fox can see himself starting to move up the rankings as he is looking for some regional title bouts.
“I have seen some of the guys who turned pro around the same time that I did, and they are fighting for those titles. As the year winds down, I feel like I will be ready to claim those title belts.”
