The ongoing negotiations between Tevin Farmer and Joseph Diaz Jr. have cleared a hurdle, as the latter recently announced that he’s accepted an offer to face the IBF super featherweight champion in Miami on January 30th.

Farmer quickly chimed in to clarify that the fight is not yet done, though; according to Mike Coppinger, he expects to receive an offer from Eddie Hearn by the end of the week.

I do hope this comes together; Farmer (30-4-1, 6 KO) remains in need of a signature victory after four successful title defenses and Diaz (30-1, 15 KO) needs to re-establish himself as an elite after falling short against Gary Russell Jr. last year.

As of now, there’s still no word on Daniel Roman-Murodjon Akhmadaliev or Juan Francisco Estrada-Kal Yafai, which were rumored to take place on the same card. We’ll keep you all appraised of any developments in the coming weeks.
