Nick Evans was born in Pensacola, Florida and raised in Fort Walton, Beach. Evans attended Fort Walton Beach High School and College. Evans is another one of those natural athletes that chose boxing for a bigger challenge. Growing up all of his cousins were very athletic in playing both basketball and football, it was pretty much the family sport. However, it was one night at Bible study when he asked one of his mentors could they go and check out a boxing gym on Carson Drive. Needless to say, very soon after he found a very special gift none of his cousins would see coming! Nick started training in 2004 at the young age of 14 and quickly became an outstanding amateur boxer. He had a great amateur career and part of the reason was the boxers he modeled himself after, two of the greatest of all time. Well, one is the greatest as Nick would say and many agree, Muhammad Ali and Roy Jones Jr. He always wanted to be just like Ali & Roy in the ring and when training he mimicked their remarkable speed, wanting to be just as fast if not faster than his idols. Evans would continue to fight amateur having dreams of one day competing on the biggest stage, the Olympic Games. It was while he attended college he thought maybe it would be better for him and his family, with his professional style and skill-set, to just “turn-pro”. Nick had his first professional bout traveling to Denmark, Europe which is where he and his family resides at the moment. Nick fought one of the countries toughest veterans to a Draw in his professional debut. Nick has come back home to Fort Walton Beach to train and fight in front of his childhood friends, High School Alum, and family here in Florida and he is pumped and ready to finally show off his Ali & Roy like speed in his hometown. He is excited for the opportunity to continue his professional boxing career as a featured fighter with Asafo Crown Promotions.
