"Since everybody at 130 is avoiding me, I see Mikey Garcia is willing to move up to 147 to fight Keith Thurman. I have a better idea. He can stay at his weight and I can come up to 135 and fight him. This is what real fighters do. I'm not avoiding anyone and I'm willing to face whoever, unlike a lot of guys that say that shit but don't mean it. So before you bypass 140 and move up to 47, I'll fight you at 135," stated super featherweight contender Tevin Farmer, who made it clear that he's eager to move in weight to face lightweight champion Mikey Garcia.
"He's free and looking for a fight and so am I, so let's do it! Guys today will be unimpressed with a fighter and then call them out," Farmer explained during a recent conversation with FightHype.com, responding to Garcia's recent analysis of Keith Thurman's split decision victory over Danny Garcia. "He was unimpressed with Keith Thurman's performance against Danny, so he's willing to move up and fight him. Mikey Garcia just knocked a guy out cold and I'm willing to move up and fight him. I'm a different kind of dude. I'm made different and that's why a lot of these guys don't want to see me."
