Fox, who headlined on February 27th when he won a six-round unanimous decision over Claudnei Lacerda.
Fox is starting to become an attraction in the Beltway region.
“We had another great camp. The sparring was excellent and now we we are just waiting for the weigh in on Thursday,” stated Fox.
When asked about Martin, Fox knew very little about his foe.
“I know his name and his record. He fought (fellow undefeated Beltway fighter) Kareem Martin. Kareem told me that if I box I will have no problem.”
Fox is settling in to becoming a known commodity and main event fighter.
“This is the 2nd time that I will be on top of the card. It is a great feeling and it’s great to have that done in my home area. After this fight, I plan to fight on the road again, but headlining is a great step in my career.”

“I would like to step up soon. I have double digit wins and I feel that I am ready for that. I want a chance to test my skills and see where I belong.”
