August 12, 2022 – Prescott Valley, AZ USA

Farmer (30-5-1, 6KOs) has not fought since a twelve-round, unanimous decision defeat to Joseph ‘JoJo’ Diaz to end his IBF junior lightweight title reign in January 2020. The Philadelphia-bred southpaw made four successful defenses prior to that point dating back to his August 2018 vacant title win over Billy Dib.

Bey (23-3-1, 11KOs) has been out of the ring since a narrow split decision defeat to George Kambosos Jr. in December 2019. The setback has aged remarkably well, with Kambosos going on to capture the lineal/WBA/IBF/WBO lightweight championship after dethroning unbeaten Teofimo Lopez Jr. (16-1, 12KOs) last November at Madison Square Garden Hulu Theater in New York City.
