Asa Stevens Wins Pro Debut with Unanimous Decision over Francisco Bonilla

NEW YORK (January 5, 2021)–This past Saturday, bantamweight prospect Asa Stevens was successful in his pro debut as he pounded out a four-round unanimous decision over veteran Francisco Bonilla at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Stevens, who is managed by Split-T Management under the guidance of Tim VanNewhouse, was impressive as he showed off the boxing skills that catapulted him to become a National Golden Gloves champion and World Amateur champion.

It shows that type of aspirations that Stevens has, as he took on a 17-fight veteran in Bonilla, who himself, has quality wins on his ledger.

Stevens of Waianae, Hawaii won by scores of 39-37 on all scorecards to open up his career at 1-0. Bonilla of Chihuahua, Mexico is 6-9-3.

“The fight was a good fight. I fought a 17- fight veteran, and he was tough. This was my 1st fight in over a year. I boxed well. I made him miss and made him pay. It was a good experience. We are only going to excel from here,” said Stevens.

Stevens is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.
