By Dan Ambrose: Former IBF super featherweight champion Tevin Farmer is rumored to be the comeback opponent for Ryan Garcia on April 2nd on DAZN in Las Vegas.

This will be a comeback for not only King Ry (21-0, 18 KOs) but also the 31-year-old Farmer (30-5-1, 6 KOs), who hasn’t fought in two years since his 12 round unanimous decision defeat against Joseph ‘Jojo’ Diaz Jr. in January 2020.

For some boxing fans, it’ll be a letdown if Farmer is Ryan Garcia’s next opponent because not only is he NOT a lightweight, but he’s not fought in two years since his loss to Jojo Diaz.

Tevin Farmer excited about ring return

Farmer isn’t a great choice but given that Ryan is coming back from a mental health episode, injuries a great deal of incisiveness, it’s not a bad choice.

I’m excited to get back in the ring. This going to be fun. If you know you know,” said Farmer on Twitter on Wednesday.

The only thing you got to worry about now is whether the Golden Boy promoted Garcia will make it through training camp without pulling out of the fight for an injury or something else.

Ryan’s track record for making it to fights was horrible last year, and the way he kept talking up fights with different elite-level fighters, it appeared that he was directionless.

At times, Ryan seems advanced as a fighter, but when it comes to making decisions, he seems scattered and child-like. His ability to stick with his choices was lacking last year, and it’s probable that issue will continue.

Farmer lacks power

Moreover, Farmer lacks punching power, and he’s going to have problems with the power and size of the 5’10” Ryan in this fight.

Farmer may have let the cat out of the bag on Wednesday in hinting on social media that he’ll be Ryan’s next opponent.

Farmer has the boxing skills to give Ryan a lot of trouble if he’s standing straight up like he was in his fight with Luke Campbell.

Ryan was dropped hard by Campbell in the second round of that fight, and that guy can’t punch. He took advantage of Ryan’s stork-like fighting style, which resembles one of the skinny-legged birds of the wetlands. Ryan’s stance is similar to a Great blue heron bird.

With Ryan’s power, speed, size, and youth advantage, he should beat Farmer. Tevin has fought at 126 and 130 during his career, and he wasn’t known for his power in either of those weight classes.

In coming up to 135, you got to imagine that Farmer’s power won’t be enough to keep Ryan off him, which is obviously why he’s being picked out for the fight.

Farmer’s best wins:

  • Guillaume Frenois
  • Jono Carroll
  • Francisco Fonseca
  • James Tennyson
  • Daulis Prescott
  • Ivan Redkach
