BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Karma ‘Savage Not Average’ Farber, 12 years old, of the Palm Bay Round13 Boxing Club, earned a silver medal at the 2021 USA Boxing National Junior Olympics and Summer Festival in Lubbock, Texas.
At the National Junior Olympics Farber’s semi-finals opponent pulled out of the tournament and refused to fight her. Karma Farber immediately advanced to the finals and faced Yaretzy Ferratt from California.
Farber showed aggression in the fight, but unfortunately fell short and was awarded the silver medal.
In just five fights throughout 11 months of training Karma has earned one gold and two silver medals in three national tournaments.
Farber is ranked #2 in the United States for youth boxing. Farber trains at the Tony Rosa Community Center in Palm Bay with the Round13 Boxing Club. Her biggest goal is to become a future Olympian.
“A huge shout-out and a big congrats to Karma’s mom, Niki, for her vital role in her daughter’s accomplishments,” said Johnny Hernandez in a story on BVMsports.com.
“Karma Farber is a prospect to keep an eye on in boxing. Just 12 years old and already being looked at as a future Olympian. She’s on a mission, and that mission is to make the Olympics. To make that journey it takes sacrifice. Judging by her passion and dedication to the sport, it’s clear that Karma will make the 2028 USA Olympic team, and win gold!”
