Raymond Ford Wants to Challenge O’Shaquie Foster Next

When last in the ring, WBA featherweight champion “Savage” Raymond Ford (15-0-1, 8 KO’s) scored a clutch twelfth round knockout of Otabek Kholmatov . During his immediate post-fight interview, Ford was quick to express interest in a duel with WBC super featherweight champion O’Shaquie “Ice Water” Foster (22-2, 12 KO’s).

Savage, in the same volley of words, declared that he was looking to escalator one level up in weight. When forecasting this leap, Ford outlined a number of boxers that he’d love to mix it up with. Ice Water represented one of those names. Yet, as time has gone on, it appears that Foster remains at the top of his wish list.


There is no question that placing the talented southpaw Raymond Ford in the opposite corner of the determined O’Shaquie Foster makes for a good fight. Ice Water is also coming off a buzzer beater victory over Abraham Nova back on February 16.

After waging a very closely contested battle, in the second defense of his title, Foster scored a meaningful twelfth round knockdown. Ice Water was then awarded a split decision victory when the cards were read shortly later. If the bout is made, it will be revealing to see how Ford looks and performs at the new weight.

When fighters move up, there is always a moment of uncertainty as to how well the fighter will acclimate to the new division. Provided that Ford does actually move up, then taking a match with Foster is a gutsy move. Stick close to 3Kings Boxing to see what the thrilling conclusion turns out to be!
