  • Tevin Farmer +600
  • Raymond Muratalla -1000

My Pick

The 27-year-old Muratalla climbs into the ring with a perfect mark of 20-0 with 16 Ko’s and has 89 rounds of experience under his belt since making his pro debut in 2016. Before that, he enjoyed a brief amateur career and beat a young Ryan Garcia in a district Silver Gloves Tournament. Muratalla has plenty of power in his punches with a current knockout ratio of 80 per cent but was dropped in the first round by Humberto Galindo in March, 2023 and has been on the canvas before that. He’s won four of his last five fights by stoppage as well as 13 of his past 15.

Muratalla stands 5-feet-8-inches tall with a 72-inch reach and is trained by Robert Garcia. He’s a fine young prospect and stepped up in class against Jeremia Nakathila in May, 2023 and then took a step back against Diego Torres and is perhaps a sideways step against Ndongeni. Muratalla has also earned wins over the likes of Miguel Contreras, Jair Valtierra, Jeremy Hill, Elias Damian Araujo, Jose Gallegos and Luis Porozo. He’s been taken the distance just four times but has fought longer than nine rounds only twice.

The 33-year-old Farmer is a southpaw who won the vacant IBF Super Featherweight title in August, 2018 via a unanimous decision over Billy Dib. He defended it against James Tennyson by fifth-round stoppage in October, by unanimous decision over Francisco Fonseca in December and by unanimous decision over Jono Carroll in March, 2019 before beating Guillame Frenois by unanimous decision. He then lost the belt to Joseph Diaz by unanimous decision six months later.

Farmer originally fought for the vacant title in December, 2017, but dropped a split decision to Kenichi Ogawa. Many fans and experts thought Farmer had done enough to win and the bout was later changed to a no-contest when Ogawa failed a drug test. Farmer stands 5-feet-6-inches tall with a 67-inch reach, so gives up two inches in height and five inches in reach to Muratalla. He had only 16 amateur fights and went 12-4 before turning pro in 2011. Since then he’s boxed 293 rounds and enters the bout with a record of 33-5-1 with just 8 Ko’s to his name.

Farmer lost his pro debut when he was stopped in four rounds by Oscar Santana. He then dropped a four-round unanimous decision to Josh Bowles eight months later and drew Frank De Alba in his next fight. Three fights later, Farmer lost an eight-round decision to Kamil Laszcyk before being stopped by Jose Pedraza in eight rounds in 2012. He didn’t give up though despite losing four and drawing one of his first 12 pro fights.

Farmer then went on a 23-fight winning streak before losing to Diaz. He hasn’t fought many world class contenders though with his best wins being over Tennyson, Avery Sparrow, Billy Dib, Ivan Redkach, Emanuel Gonzalez and Gamaliel Diaz. He lacks power as just 24.4 per cent of his wins have come by stoppage but he’s halted his last two opponents. Muratalla can’t take him lightly because he possesses fine boxing skills and a lot of hand speed. He’s improved a lot over the years and his chin isn’t bad at all even though he’s been stopped twice.


Muratalla is well known for his power but Farmer is quite durable. Farmer sat out for about 3.5 years between January, 2020 and June 2023 and has won all three of his comeback fights against limited opposition. He’s taking a step up in class against Muratalla and although he has the skills and talent to pull off an upset here, I’d still be slightly surprised if he manages to do it.

Muratalla’s power should be the difference.
