Boxing 360 promoted prospect Alantez Fox remains undefeated after pitching a shutout against Keith Collins on a card held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma this past Thursday. Fox (11-0-1, 4 KOs) was origanlly slated to face Djolevi Ballogou on April 20th, but after some unforeseen issues that prevented Ballogou from competing quickly stepped in and salvaged the effort Fox put forth preparing for his initial date, delaying his appearance by a mere 5 days. Fox earned the unanimous decision victory over Collins by the judges’ scores of 60-54, 60-54, and 60-53.
Fox was superb in his latest outing, showcasing a wider range of skills not previously seen in his earlier fights, proving he is improving quicker than most prospects. At 21 years old, Fox is already an impressive physical specimen, evident of his last performance, but he feels he is constantly getting stronger and believes he has yet to reach his physical peak.
“I felt great and I want to thank Boxing 360 for allowing me to do what I love, especially when most guys in my position would’ve had to sit out and wait several weeks or even months to compete after a postponement. I honestly feel like I’m getting stronger every day, my opponent was lucky we fought when we did because another week or so and I’d be even more dangerous, I truly feel that way. My training camps aren’t a chore to me, I’m actually excited every day in the gym to see how far I progress day to day,” Fox said.
Fox didn’t just show physical superiority, he demonstrated a refined sense of boxing ability as well.
“I’m confident in my skills, but I’m also a student of the game and I know that even at the highest level you have to continue to improve on your craft. We were preparing for one guy and then we had to quickly prepare for another, but that’s good experience for me and it never changed the things we do in the gym to fine tune my technical ability,” Fox said.
Mario Yagobi of Boxing360 was happy to oblige Fox and was pleased with the progress he’s making thus far in his career. He is looking to grant Fox his wishes and keep him busy.
“We’ll get him in there again real soon, that’s what he wants and it’s refreshing to see a fighter who truly loves to compete. I want to keep him busy because it’s what he wants, but I must admit that as a fan I want to see him in the ring as much as possible. It’s astonishing how quickly this kid is picking things up and it’s fun seeing him grow in the ring,” Yagobi said.
