A pro since 2009, Yuandale Evans is a devastating puncher, with eight of his 14 knockouts coming in the first round. In May 2011, Evans won the interim WBC Youth Intercontinental junior lightweight title. He has impressive wins over former Filipino champion Adones Aguelo and former world title challenger Emmanuel Lucero. Following a three-year hiatus, Evans returned to the ring with two explosive knockout victories and is anxious to regain the career momentum he once built prior to his only defeat.
“I am very thankful that Lou DiBella has given me a chance to prove my talent and skill to the boxing world and to work with me on this fight,” said Evans. “I’ve waited five years for an opportunity like this and I am ready to demonstrate that I am the best at what I do.”
