Farrah claimed that she felt “bullied” by Damon Feldman (the game promoter) after he allegedly failed to meet her demands for adequate accommodations and air travel for her posse.
During an interview, Abraham said:
“Damon the promoter won’t book correct flights for my people, for my coaches and my mother and my daughter to come watch. He is in breach of my contract.”

After several weeks, a star of Teen Mom 2 – Kailyn Lowry, has challenged Farrah to a boxing match.

If she boxes Kailyn Lowry, Damon Feldman said that he won’t take legal action against Abraham.
