“Since I was a child, I promised my father I would win him a title. This is my first opportunity to keep that promise.

“Winning in front of my family would be an honour and an inspiration to my students at the gym and the community,” Coxen said.

Coxen has been rigorously preparing for months, treating this fight with the utmost seriousness.

“I train hard as if this is my last fight. I treat each fight as the hardest fight yet to come,“ he stated.

Reflecting on his opponent, Coxen noted their shared history from their EFC careers.

“We never met in the ring, but I know he is a heavy hitter like myself. He won his last fight with a first-round knockout.
