JAMES TENNYSON and Tevin Farmer both have business to attend to this Saturday (October 20) in Boston, when they clash for Farmer’s IBF super-featherweight crown, but that hasn’t stopped either of them dreaming of bigger and better things in the future.

Tennyson, 22-2 (18), the underdog with it all to do, has his sights set on an all-Belfast world title clash with former two-weight world champion Carl Frampton, while Farmer, 26-4-1 (5), seems to fancy the idea of sharing a ring with current WBA super-featherweight champion Gervonta Davis.

“Carl has always said that he would love to be a three-weight world champion so just imagine if James wins and he faces Carl at Windsor Park next summer. It would be huge,” Tennyson’s manager Mark Dunlop told the Belfast Telegraph.
