It’s been a few days now since Tevin Farmer dropped a highly controversial decision last weekend, but he’s spoken about it for the first time.
Fighting on HBO last weekend in Vegas, 27-year-old Farmer got the rough end of the stick in many fans’ view when a split decision was awarded to Kenichi Ogawa.
Many screamed robbery straight after the fight and Farmer himself looked visibly shaken by the decision which moved his pro record to 25-5-1-5KO.
Punch stats also after the fight showed that Farmer was the more dominant fighter of the two, with Farmer landing more than 50 clear blows that his opponent on the night.
Farmer has now taken to Twitter to unleash how he feels about it:
I suppose to be World Champion right now. I got jerked big time. These judges is out here killing dreams. Only the strong survive?

Although he lost in his challenge for the IBF super-featherweight world title this weekend, Farmer is still young enough just yet to come back and challenge again in reality.
He’s overcome plenty of knocks outside the ring in recent years too – so a man of his character we expect to bounce back strongly in 2018.
