Kevin Newman II set for his pro debut [A look back in photos]

Ever since crossing paths with Kevin Newman II inside of the Richard Steele Boxing Club five years ago, we’ve kept close tabs with the former standout amateur prospect. The ride has been a rewarding one, from seeing Kevin transition over the Johnny Tocco’s and later the Mayweather Boxing Club, all the while gaining invaluable experience learning from the Mayweather clan while testing himself sparring against a bevy of fellow prospects, contenders, and champions.

Newman is actually embarking on a completely different journey, as he is set to make his professional debut on Sept. 13 on the Floyd Mayweather vs. Marcos Maidana II undercard at the MGM Grand. Newman also inked an exclusive deal with Mayweather Promotions, so expect to be seeing a lot of him in the coming months and years.
