Anthony Jevons To Make His Debut in Manchester

After spending large portions of 2012 preparing Stevie Williams for an ill-fated British title shot, Liverpool’s Dave Tonks has had to endure numerous bad spells as his charge’s misfortune has saw two Lonsdale lifelines fall short at the last possible moment. Luckily for Tonks, not all is grey, as time spent away from nurturing Williams has saw the veteran trainer develop the latest star to roll off the famed Liverpool boxing conveyor belt.

Anthony Jevons may not be a familiar name to those outside the gloried Merseyside fight boundaries but Tonks is insistent that’s about to change as the popular youngster makes his professional bow this Friday evening on Dave Coldwell’s monstrous Manchester bill. After inking a promotional deal with the fast-rising Yorkshire promoter in June, Jevons immediately set up stall at Tonk’s V02 gym and early reports from the likeable tutor are very impressive.

“I’ve known “Jevvo” since he first started boxing and he’s a boxer that has impressed me every time I’ve watched him,” praised Tonks. “As an amateur I expected so much more from him but for one reason or another he never pushed on and got the rewards his talent deserved. Since he’s come to me, his attitude has been first class and it’s exactly what I need for him. Turning pro has given him a new challenge and he’s learning new stuff all the time.”

Tonks added, “He’s settled into our place like he’s been here for years and you can tell he’s enjoying every single moment here. He’s sparring with good kids all the time and the adjustments and improvements he’s made since day one have been unbelievable. He’s got a good team around him in terms of training and promoting and I’m looking forward to what Dave [Coldwell] has got planned for him. Coldwell Boxing is on the verge of big things and I’m happy that myself and “Jevvo” can be a part of it.”
