10/24/2023 - No comments

The boxing world just got a tad more thrilling! DeAngelo Evans, the 25-year-old dynamo from Kemersville, North Carolina, now boasts a flawless 7-0 record. Yep, that’s seven knockouts for those keeping score.

Evans expressed his elation: “Knowing that someone like Mark Habibi believes in me gives me this rush – like all those grueling hours in the gym are finally getting their due. With Wise Owl Boxing by my side, I reckon the sky’s the limit.”

Mark Habibi couldn’t hold back his excitement: “Working with DeAngelo? Oh man! The guy’s a powerhouse. Between his killer looks, engaging personality, and obvious talent in the ring (7-0 with 7 knockouts, remember?), he’s the full package. The next step? Getting him under the wing of a stellar promoter.”

Lamont Rosborough, the co-manager, chimes in, “Teaming up with such an exceptional talent like Deangelo? It’s like winning the lottery! This lad’s championship material, and I see that title belt in his future.”

A fun tidbit: Evans started throwing punches when he was 19. Not in some alley, but after discovering boxing during his college stint at Averett University. Funnily enough, he was wrestling there. But two years in, he decided to swap the wrestling mat for the boxing ring.

Oh, and amateur career? Who needs one when you’re sparring with pros!

Reflecting on his journey, Evans says, “From day one in the boxing gym, I was all in. There’s something about one-on-one challenges. Plus, my love for working with my hands isn’t just restricted to boxing. Cooking, painting, drawing – it’s all in a day’s work for me.”

Let’s rewind a bit. Evans made his professional debut with a bang, knocking out Joel Franklin in the second round on April 17, 2021, in Aiken, South Carolina. And if we’re talking recent action, he sent Kelvin Smith packing on August 5th in Danville, Virginia.

Under the watchful eye of his trainer, ex-pro Marcus Luck, Evans is sharpening those skills.

What’s next? Besides his gig as a boxing instructor, he’s prepping for a significant fight on December 16th. The venue? None other than The Rock Hill Sports and Events Center in Rock Hill, South Carolina. And if you’re a fan, you won’t want to miss this.
