Former featherweight champion (up to 59 kg), American Tevin Farmer (30-5-1, 6 KO) accused the IBF title holder, compatriot Joseph Diaz (31-1-0, 15 KO), of evading a rematch with him.
Recall that the fighters met in January this year and Diaz defeated Farmer by a close decision, taking away the title. In the contract for the fight, as usual, a revenge was prescribed, but later the IBF intervened, reminding that there was also a mandatory challenger – Russian Shavkat Rakhimov (15-0-0, 12 KO).
“I’m open to any interviews that would help expose this shit! His team is writing to the IBF asking them not to give me the rematch that was written into the contract,” Farmer said on his Instagram. “It won’t happen, sucker. ! I hope you understand what non-fulfillment entails. “
