Light middleweight prospect Alantez Fox, (10-0-1, 4 KOs), remains undefeated after earning outscoring Greg Hackett in a six round bout at the Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, Maryland, Fox’s home state, on Saturday.
It was a shutout performance from Fox as he cruised to a unanimous decision victory. He displayed some high level boxing skills and managed to win every round on the judges’ scorecards. It was his second victory this year and he isn’t looking to rest on his laurels.
"I did what I trained to do and that was beat my opponent," Fox said. "I was looking to get some real work in and we accomplished that. We’ve been working on some things in the gym, but experimenting in camp is different than executing in real time. I’ll take everything I possibly can from this performance and gear up to make my next appearance inside of the ring."
Fox has stayed very busy in the last six months and no one would blame him if he were to soak in his recent victory, however Fox is determined to keep active while admitting he’s capable of deciding the moments for appropriate rests.
"I know my body well enough to know when to push it and when to slow it down. As of now I’m ready and able to continue making strides in my career. I’m in a good place mentally and physically, but my team knows that I won’t hesitate to take my breaks if and when I need them. For now, I’m more interested in becoming the best fighter I can possibly be," Fox said.
"I’m already looking for another opponent for Alantez," said his promoter Mario Yagobi of Boxing 360. "He’s coming along very well and I see him getting better with each fight. He’ll be back in the ring sometime in the near future."
