October 23, 2012 – Undefeated Light middleweight prospect, Alantez Fox (7-0-1, 3 KOs) of Forestville, Maryland, has signed an agreement with New York based promotional company Boxing 360. At age 20, Fox stands 6’5 with a 79 inch reach, giving him a height and reach advantage against most light middleweights.
While fighting as an amateur, Alantez had an extensive career having fought around 200 bouts winning close to 160 of them. Using his height and reach to give his opponents problems, Fox is very agile for a man of his stature.
In his last fight, Fox fought Frank Galarza (7-0-1, 4 KOs) in his backyard and came out with a draw. Never afraid to face a stiff challenge, Alantez will make his way back to the ring on November 3, 2012, against an opponent TBA. He’s looking to extend on his unbeaten streak.
“Boxing 360 has a good reputation of taking care of its fighters and I’m happy to be signed by them,” said Fox. “When Mario Yagobi approached me with the contract I felt comfortable and that was important to me. I’m looking forward to my next fight and I’m excited about my future.”
Alantez is trained by his father Troy, who feels he has the tools to become a world champion. With his son’s fight around the corner, he feels good about signing with Boxing 360.
“Alantez and I talked and we feel Yagobi is going to move us in the right direction.” said Troy Fox. “For those who don’t know much about my son, he moves well for a tall rangy fighter. He’s got good power, decent hand speed and he uses his height and reach very well. I can see him becoming a world champion if he can maintain focus.”
“I can see Alantez giving anyone in the light middleweight division problems because of his unique physique,” stated Boxing 360 promoter Mario Yagobi. “As long as he stays healthy I want to keep him fighting.”
