NICKNAME: JJ | DIVISION: SUPER WELTERWEIGHT | BIRTH PLACE: CARDIFF, WALES | STANCE: SOUTHPAW |
Along with Andrew Selby, JJ is one that excites the fight fan in me, an extensive amateur background behind him, which witnessed him win Welsh title after Welsh title at all age groups, he decided the time was right to make the jump into the deeper pond of the paid ranks, making his debut in May 2016.
He has since taken his record to 5-0 all ending in straightforward point victories, in so doing looking every bit the prospect that could get people out of their seats in the years to come.
Training under the leadership of Danny Wilson he has set his sights high, seeing what it takes to be a world champion from stablemate Nathan Cleverly on a daily basis which will help the process with an outstretched hand grasping for a bright future.
Write down the name, JJ Evans, because He will no doubt be reminding you all of his talents in years to come.
PROFESSIONAL RECORD – 5-0-0 (0 KO’s)
EVANS SHINES IN FOUR ROUND DECISION WIN OVER McCAULEY
Ebbw Vale Leisure Centre, Wales – JJ Evans (5-0) is a cause for optimism as far as the future of Welsh boxing is concerned, The 21-Year-Old was put in another testing contest, following on from his win over one of the Uk’s most recognisable in William Warburton to another crafty journeyman, this time in the always entertaining Kevin McCauley (13-140-11)..
Evans looked dejected after his win over Warburton, setting such high standards for himself can become a burden so upon his arrival at Ebbw Vale’s leisure centre he set out to put the record straight by making a statement.
Evans began with a solid jab from the southpaw stance as the marauding McCauley threw wildly in the hope of hitting something except fresh air. Evans kept composed throughout which was a feat in itself as the visitor mocked the multiple Welsh champion.
McCauley tapped his chin, dropped his hands to his side in the hope of bringing Evans into a dog fight but found a continuous stream of heavy leather as Evans rattled off hard body shots before mixing in a solid uppercut much to the pleasure of his onlooking public.
On the conclusion of the contest, McCauley smiled back at Evans probably in the knowledge that he had shared the ring with a fighter destined for a bright future.
