With 90 thousand followers on Instagram, this social media savvy fighter is also on the American Olympic Team. With 11 Bouts, 11 Wins, and 7 K.O.’s. Lorenzo said, “My coach gave me the name ‘Truck.’ It’s stayed with me and will lead to many big things. I don’t feel the pressure; it comes when you don’t believe in yourself, but this has been my dream my whole life, and I’ve been grinding for it and working. “I owe a lot to my uncle Raheem. We go the entire way together; without me, there isn’t him, and without him, there isn’t me; we are like a package. “Signing with MTK Global is amazing. They’ll help build and push me along and move me towards becoming the legend and champion I need to be. Lorenzo Simpson is still swinging for the top.
Tyi “Mr. Untouchable” Edmonds pro record 14-4 with 9 knockouts. Edmonds started competing in the sport at 8 years of age. He has always been around the sport. Tyi grew up watching his dad train and compete. Seeing his work ethic and dedication did a lot for him as a child. His dad didn’t have what Tyi has today, and that’s a coach. Tyi can honestly say his dad instilled the sport of boxing in him. Tyi and his dad studied boxing in and out. Now it’s his turn. He can say, “I’m constantly pushing myself to be better and taking risks in the sport. My goal is to put my name right next to the greats. The 4 losses on my record are deceiving. I feel like I learned so much about myself with each loss.” With that being said, “I’m taking each lesson and applying it all come August 12. Skill and sheer willpower will take me to the top!!”

Farmer, who is right-handed but fights in a southpaw stance, is known for his old-school style and slick defensive skills with 37 Bouts, 30 Wins, and 6 K.O.’s—pattering his boxing style after one of the great Southpaws of the 80s, Parnell Whitaker with slick head movement. Now after not fighting for two years because of the Pandemic. Tevin is excited about returning to the ring to regain his World Title.
