PHILADELPHIA (July 2, 2011)—On Friday night July 8th at The New Palladium in Philadelphia, “Salute to Philly Boxers” will present its inaugural boxing card which will feature some of the brightest young fighters in the city and will be headlined by undefeated Coy “Pretty Boy “Evans.

Evans of Philadelphia has established himself as one of the top Featherweight prospects in the country as he is undefeated with a record of 10-0-1 with two wins coming via knockout.

The twenty-six year old has shown improvement in every bout as he is slowly stepping up the competition.

Evans turned pro on October 22, 2004 with a four round unanimous decision over Edward Valdez at The Legendary Blue Horizon. He continued to fight veteran fighters such as thirty-five fight veteran Carlos Diaz in just Evans’ sixth fight.

He showed some power as he scored his two knockouts in a three fight span over Vineash Rungea and Morris Chule.

Evans is coming off a six round unanimous decision over forty-one fight veteran Felipe Almanza on January 28th in Philadelphia.

Evans opponent will be announced shortly

The native of Antelope, California sports at record of 10-1 with one win coming by knockout.

That fight set off a streak of ten in a row which included wins over Jovann Jones (9-4); Jorge Marquez (3-0); fifty-six fight veteran Anthony Martinez; Jonathan Ramirez (5-2) and Jonathan Bobadilla (4-2).

Martyniouk suffered his first professional defeat in his last bout as he dropped a six round unanimous decision to Khadaphi Proctor on November 27, 2010 in Oakland, California.

Martyniouk’s opponent will be announced shortly.

In a four round Super Middleweight bout, undefeated Fred Jenkins Jr. (2-0, 1 KO) of Philadelphia, PA will take on Stephen Franklin (0-5) of Martinsburg, WV
