Championship boxing returned to Philadelphia on Saturday night at the Liacouras Center as IBF Super Featherweight Titlist Tevin Farmer successfully defended his belt going toe-to-toe with Jono Carroll.

 

In a thrilling middleweight bout with both men hitting the canvas twice, Maciej Sulecki came out victorious after beating Gabriel Rosado by unanimous decision.

 

Tevin Farmer on his performance: “It was a good performance, even when I am at my best, I will think I need to improve. He talked a lot but he showed up. That was a great fight.”

 

On fighting his fight at times: “ You see, I boxed when I wanted to but I went inside when I wanted to. I wanted to go inside and see what he was hitting for, we had a lot of words. But he has a lot of heart and he showed it.”

 

On fighting Gervonta Davis: “Honestly, I don’t care. I handled business tonight. We go back behind the scenes and we will talk. This fight has been building since 2014. He and I have built this fight up. We both deserve this money. So, yes, I do want to fight Gervonta Davis, but we need to make sure the money is right.”

 

Maciej Sulecki on what happened in the 9th round:

 

“I don’t know why, it was stupid, my coach told me that this all very stupid. When I started to fall short, I started to box.” On overall performance: “I’m not happy, this wasn’t a good fight. I lost concentration, but I’m very happy.”

 

On fighting Andrade next: “Yeah I want Demetrius Andrade next. I want to fight him and become world champion. I’m ready.”

 

Gabriel Rosado on how he was able to change the fight: “I thought by the middle rounds I turned it around. In the middle rounds I fought well, applied pressure. I had a 10-8 round, closed it by the time I got to the ninth, and closed hard in the tenth. I don’t know man, what can I do.” On Sulecki figuring him out earlier than expected: “I mean not really, he’s a seasoned fighter, but I was landing my right hand, I was throwing jabs, throwing shots to the body. I was throwing subtle veteran moves. I mean I thought I won, you can hear the crowd.”
