Farmer is terrific in close range something not many boxers can pull off – employing the shoulder rolls and good bobbing and weaving to slip punches and giving few of his own without being the one that’s pressing forward most of the time.
Stories like this one are the main reasons that I still love the sport of boxing, you don’t have to be the greatest or have the best start, to leave a mark in the sport, Bernard Hopkins, the great Juan Manuel Marquez and even the 152-21-9 Henry Armstrong lost their pro debuts and look how their careers turned out, Farmer is definitely on his way.
