Fox of Forestville, Maryland will be making his second start of the year and he is ready to go and put on a great performance.
“My training has been great. Everything is falling into place and my weight is coming off easy,” said the 20 year-old prospect.
In Valderrama, Fox is facing his 3rd straight opponent who has had significantly more fights then him. Fox will be Valderrama’s 11th undefeated opponent.
“Valderrama has fought some guys from my area (David Grayton, Demond Nicholson and Malik Hawkins), so I know him some. He has fought at bigger weights so i expect him to be bigger, but my boxing skills will get me over in this fight.”
Fox has been kept busy with King’s Promotions and he expects to begin moving up the ladder in the near-future.
“I am getting moved very well. This is a great opportunity for me as it is on the undercard of a televised fight. That in itself is a step up. I feel like this is an upward step. I keep telling people to just be on the lookout for me. This is a television undercard, so the next step will be to be on television and then I will be known nationally.”
