Alantez Fox (born March 13, 1992) is an American professional boxer from Maryland and older brother to undefeated welterweight Mykal Fox. Fox turned professional at the age of 18 instead of attempting to represent the United States in the 2012 Summer Olympics due to the rumors that the protective headgear would not be used, even though the headgear was used in 2012 and not removed until the 2016 Summer Olympics. While beginning his professional career, Fox was closely compared to Paul Williams due in large part to both fighters being extremely tall for their weight class even though Fox eventually moved up a weight class.
Fox currently competes in the middleweight division and is promoted by DiBella Entertainment. As of 2019 he is ranked as the #7 middleweight contender by the WBO. Fox's most notable fight occurred in October 2017 on HBO's Boxing After Dark when he fought Demetrius Andrade and lost his undefeated record via a unanimous decision, in part due to a torn left rotator cuff suffered in the first round of the fight.
