Just one week ago, Featherweight Tevin Farmer won his tenth consecutive bout with a one round destruction over Dominic Coca in Springfield, Virginia.
Farmer of Philadelphia took out Coca with one right hook to raise his record to 17-4-1 with four knockouts.
“I always had power and it was just a matter of time before it kicked in. people will see more knockouts from me,” said Farmer.
Farmer is ready for a fight that will put him in great position for a great opportunity.
“I would like to fight for something big. It is up to my promoter and manager. I am ready for that fight tomorrow.”
Farmer is promoted by DiBella Entertainment.
Since he was a prized amateur, big things have been expected for Cartagena and on Saturday night could be the first step to realizing his championship aspirations.
“I am feeling good, strong and confident in myself. I had a great camp and I am just ready and feeling good,”said Cartegena.
“This is the perfect time for me. I have been preparing mentally and physically for this fight. I am expecting a great show and I will give it all what I got and I will show everyone what I do.”
As for Sosa, this will be his first fight in just over six months when he viciously stopped Michael Brooks in the ninth round of their fight in Atlantic City.
“I feel great and camp went really well. It has been six months and I am ready to get back in there,” said Sosa, who will be making his first fight under the Club 1957 Management banner.
“I am looking forward to perform. Being that the fight is in Puerto Rico, I feel that I am at home. I was raised here and am excited to fight here.”
He is facing an unknown quantity in Cruz, but the 26 year-old native of Camden, New Jersey is not concerned.
“I have no idea about him. My job is to train and be prepared. My trainer and manager take care of the other stuff. I am just excited and ready to go.”
” The statement that we hear so often from boxers “Hard Work Pays Off” applies at every level and it is spreading like wildfire in the Club 1957 Stable. It is my job to ensure that every boxer has what they need so they can bring their best performance every time they step into the ring to fight. I am 24/7 with my team in contact with each of my boxers on a daily basis. This may seem obsessive but it works! I choose to work with specific boxers not only because they are elite athletes (which they are) but equally as important because they have committed to put boxing above all. This is just one of the many reasons why I have no doubt that Tyrone ‘Young Gun” Brunson will be victorious over DeCarlo Perez this Saturday night. Tyrone is the more experienced boxer and the fact that he has extraordinary KO power, veteran boxing skills, and in shape…now that is just Dangerous! Obviously I am proud of Tyrone and he is prepared for anything,”said Club 1957 manager Mark Cipparone.
“This week for the stable could not have started off better as both Miguel and Sosa were there to support their gym mate in VA. as Tevin Farmer got things popping with his first round KO. The entire Team traveled together the next morning and we have been in PR since last Sunday finishing up what Miguel calls his best camp ever! I enjoy every part of what I do and I will always give my best when it comes to my boxers… because as I said in the begining “Hard Work Pays Off!”
