By Ron Harris

Los Angeles – Early in the fight, Alantez Fox (27-2-1) was being mauled by the much shorter Marcos Hernandez (14-3-1).  Hernandez used some low blows and a head butt along with some effective body shots and occasional head blows against Fox.  “The head butt came in the third round.  That is how I got the cut”, recalls Fox.  “That’s when I started jabbing and moving.”

After round 5, Troy Fox, Alantez’s father and trainer told him to stop throwing “wild” rights and to start moving.  “All he meant was for me to sharpen up, throw sharper punches and move more”, says Fox.  After round 6, Fox was a totally different fighter.  His jabs were stiff and accurate. His movements were superb.   He doubled and tripled up on the jabs for the remainder of the fight and won a unanimous decision.  The judges scored the fight, 96-94, 97-94 and 98-92, all for Fox.  In rounds, it is 6-4, 7-3 and 8 rounds to 2.  After the ringside doctor looked at the cut near Fox’s eye, he never let that bother him.  His cut man did a great job and Fox never lost his poise.

Many Fox observers said this is the best he has looked in several fights.  “It’s been a while since I’ve moved like that I guess,” says Fox, a native of Washington, DC. “It depends on my opponent, but I plan to move, box, give them angles and make them pay when they make a mistake.”  Normally a middleweight, Fox, 28,  fought at super middleweight for this fight and showed people that he is a worthy contender in both weights.
