THE LOWDOWN

TEVIN FARMER

  • After winning the vacant IBF title against Billy Dib, Farmer has gone on to make four defences and is coming off a decision over Guillaume Frenois.
  • Farmer's last official loss was back 2012 and has outpointed most of his opponents with incredible speed, technique and endurance.
  • Farmer will boast a three-inch reach advantage which will be crucial in maintaining the distance and avoiding the power of Diaz.

JOSEPH DIAZ

  • After suffering his sole loss to Gary Russell Jr back in 2018 Diaz has bounced back with four wins coming off a decision over Jesus Cuadro.
  • Diaz is also a southpaw and has more punching power than Farmer, finishing half of his wins, and he is a former featherweight champion.
  • Diaz has a solid chin and knowing that Farmer is not renowned for his knockout power, he can be aggressive in closing the distance and hunting the chin.

THE PREDICTION

This should be a very close contest. Farmer is not a power puncher and will look to use his skill and speed to outpoint Diaz. However, Diaz can pressure Farmer and negate the three inch reach advantage by throwing his jab and backing his chin while throwing big combinations to overwhelm Farmer.

Winner: Diaz via Decision
