Jevons boxed for Golden Gloves ABC, won a number of amateur titles and was looking to be a hot favourite for next year's ABA's. But he gave up all of this to move into the pro ranks and follow his dreams to punch for pay.
David Coldwell believes that with hard work and dedication, the young man can go on to big things: "Anthony is a talented young man and I’m certain that with the right guidance he can have a good future... Liverpool’s reputation as a city for producing excellent boxers is well known and Anthony has all the skills to become the city’s newest star. He’s sacrificed the opportunity to compete for more amateur honours and I’m happy he’s done that because he definitely has the style which is more suited to the professional side of boxing."
The 21-year old super-featherweight will continue being trained by long-time coach and friend Dave Tonks.
"I’ve known “Jevvo” since he was ten years old and I know for a fact he’s hungry for success," told Tonks. "He’s got a ready-made style for the pro game and I can’t wait to get him in the gym so we can start working on all the ideas I’ve got planned for him. He’s got a solid team behind him and if we get him on the right path then there’s no reason we can’t be knocking on the doors of champions a couple of years down the line."
