So who is Virgil Hunter and what happened to his great career as a trainer?
Tevin Farmer is arguably the best boxer hailing from the City of Brotherly Love. Lauded by future super middleweight hall of famer, Andre ‘SOG’ Ward, as a fighter to “watch out for” and one that “can do it all”, Farmer is creeping slowly but surely into the national spotlight.
In tomorrow night’s second Premier Boxing Champions double-header card, both Leo Santa Cruz and Abner Mares enter the ring at the StubHub Center, in Carson, California. However, they won’t be facing each other as originally anticipated.

The junior middleweight division is riddled with talent, but there can only be one king. Find out who Eightcount has at the top of the division.
