R and B Promotions is setting December on fire with a thrilling night of boxing at Philadelphia’s 2300 Arena. The evening of December 1st is not just another date on the calendar – it’s a boxing extravaganza!
Topping the bill, we’ve got Tevin Farmer, a former world champ with a record that speaks for itself – 32 wins, 5 losses, 1 draw, and a knack for knocking opponents out cold. This 33-year-old Philadelphia native has sent many a fighter packing, including Angelo Ward, Tim Witherspoon Jr., and a list of others who probably still remember his powerful left hook. Remember his trip down under in 2018? He snagged the IBF Junior League title from Billy Dib and defended it like a fortress.
Farmer’s coming back from a break, but he hasn’t missed a beat. Just ask Avery Sparrow or Oscar Barajas, who both learned the hard way at the 2300 Arena. Now, he’s squaring up against Patrick Okine from Accra, Ghana. Okine’s got his own impressive scorecard – 21 wins, 6 losses, 2 draws, and a punch that’s toppled 18 fighters. But he’s looking to bounce back after a tussle with Cletus Seldin.
The night’s not just about these two, though. We’ve got Oluwafemi Oyeleye throwing down with Luis Solis in a super welterweight bout that promises fireworks. Joshua Jones and Carlos Padilla are lighting up the lightweight division, while Erron Peterson is stepping into the ring with a mystery opponent in a junior middleweight clash.
But wait, there’s more! (Just kidding, I won’t say that.) The evening also features a bunch of four-rounders that are anything but filler. Ismail Muhammad and Ishmeal Dixon are going head-to-head in junior welterweight, while Juan Marrero’s opponent in a lightweight fight is still under wraps. Edwin Cortes and Tyrone Arzeno are going toe-to-toe in a bantamweight battle that’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
And for those who love a good “undefeated” story, Allen Otto and James Abraham are duking it out in a middleweight tussle. Devin Gantt, with his perfect knockout record, is eyeing another win in the featherweight division. Ghandi Romain and Jamar Leach are squaring up in a welterweight showdown, and Steve Cunningham Jr. is set to face Angelo Thompson in a junior middleweight scrap.
