Professional boxing careerEdit

Farmer started his boxing career when he was 19 admitting that in his early pro career he wasn't taking boxing seriously enough which lead to some early career losses.

However having have no losses on his record since his 12th fight in 2012 he earned his way to a world title shot and in his 31st professional bout on December 2017 he fought Kenichi Ogawa for the IBF super featherweight world title, which he lost at the time but it was later switched to a no contest due to the fact his opponent had tested positive in a drugs test pre fight.

Farmer travelled to Australia in August 2018 to land the title in the backyard of Sydney's Billy Dib. It was announced in August 2018 Tevin Farmer had signed a co promotional deal with Dibella Entertainment and Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing USA with his first bout being aired on the new sports streaming platform DAZN.

Personal lifeEdit

Farmer's great uncle is Joe Gans who was the first ever native born black American to ever win a world title.[3] In July 2017 Farmer suffered a career threatening injury when he was shot in the hand during an altercation at his nieces birthday party where he attempted to disarm the person holding the gun and was told by doctors he would never box again.[4]
