It was a marathon of a card at Madison Square Garden, in anticipation of the main event on Saturday night.

Top of the preliminaries was IBF Super Featherweight Champion, Tevin Farmer, who was authoritative in a defence of his Title against the tough Costa Rican, Francisco Fonseca. Farmer landed with uppercuts at regular intervals, and his bodywork was impressive. It was no classic, with Farmer’s loose and languid style meeting the more rugged work of Fonseca, but Farmer impressed in patches with some eye catching punches, often clean, which showed on the bruised Fonseca’s face. in the end it was a 117-111 verdict across the board for the Philadelphian, in a dominant win, and he now looks forward to increasing his stock in the division in 2019.

Canadian puncher, David Lemieux was dropped from the card at late notice. Rehydration issues meant his proposed Middleweight meeting with Tureano Johnson failed to materialise. He was reportedly dehydrated and drained from trying to make weight the previous day.
