Alantez “Sly as A” Fox vs. Julius Kennedy on January 12th in Fort Washington, Maryland

January 8, 2013 – Undefeated junior middleweight prospect and Maryland native, Alantez “Sly as A” Fox (8-0-1, 4 KOs), will try to carry the successful momentum from his last outing into his next as he squares off against fellow Maryland native Julius Kennedy (7-2-1, 3 KOs) in his first main event attraction. The bout will serve as the headliner for a card which takes place on January 12th, 2013 at the Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, Maryland, in front of a crowd that will surely appreciate an event that matches up two of its very own in-state combatants against one another.

Fox is a superb boxer who possesses a substantial height and reach advantage over the average 154 pounder. Fox is able to utilize his 6’5″ stature and maintains the kind of well-rounded game that allows him to fight both inside and out. Promoted by Boxing 360, Fox is confident that he’ll shine in his first main event bout.

“My handlers are giving me the opportunities and it’s up to me to capitalize on them,” Fox said. “My career is in the best hands, but this is boxing and at the end of the day it’s on me to do the right things inside the ring and out. This is a benchmark fight on the road to my ultimate goal and I can’t overlook the importance of each outing and the lessons I can gain from them. It’s an honor to headline a fight in my home state and ticket buyers will be treated to a very entertaining night of boxing.”

“There are a lot of talented prospects in boxing and Fox is one of them, but what separates him from the rest is his desire to outwork the competition,” said Boxing 360’s Mario Yagobi. “This kid has an insatiable appetite for hard work and if you couple that with his maturity it’s easy to see what makes Fox so special. On January 12th the Maryland fight fans will get the chance to see a future star on his way to the top.”
