Is There a Tevin Farmer versus Mickey Bey Bout Brewing Behind the Scenes?!


It’s now been officially two years since super featherweight boxer Tevin “American Idol” Farmer (30-5-1, 6 KO’s) has competed in the ring. In his last contest, he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Joseph Diaz. With the defeat, he lost his IBF title and picked up his fifth professional blemish. At that time, Farmer had already been forced to dig deep and correct the direction of his career numerous times. This is because he had picked four of his five defeats in his first twelve matches.

The American Idol actually lost his professional debut by way of TKO! Clearly though, the determined Philly fighter was not dismayed as he would go on to become a world champion. Now it appears that Farmer is ready to start his long climb back to the top once again. This is due to a recent tweet in which he reveals a potential upcoming match with Mickey “The Spirit” Bey (23-3-1, 11 KO’s). Even more encouraging, the post was retweeted by Mickey Bey himself.

OLD BUSINESS REVISITED?

Like Farmer, Bey has remained out of action for quite an extended amount of time. In his last bout, against George Kambosos Jr, on December 14, 2019, he lost by way of split decision. In fact, Bey has only staged two fights in the last four years which has led many to believe that the Cleveland born boxer was retired. If Farmer’s tweet proves to be true, then this was obviously not the case.

Provided that the dustup does take place, it will be interesting to see what each man has left to offer. Each man has their work cut out for themselves as both have officially fell from the top 15 rankings of all the major sanctioning bodies. Despite their collective inactivity, this match was actually brought up as a possibility toward the end of 2021.

Now that they two are mutually endorsing the match, let’s see if it actually comes to fruition or remains a would-be fantasy match.
