LUKE EVANS has teamed up with new trainer Matthew Hatton as he attempts to get on the title trail after his career almost ended prematurely.

Evans recently teamed with Hatton after getting his career off to a perfect ten with Blain Younis training him. 

Luke hasn’t boxed since last December when he eased back after 13 month lay-off by outpointing Richard Samuels.

The enforced break happened after he was the victim of a knife attack in early 2019. He was left with deep facial wounds and his promising career was in jeopardy.

When his perpetrators were sentenced the judge praised Evans for offering to support his attackers in getting away from a life of crime.

Luke was still a teenager when he turned professional and showed title potential until his career was put on hold.
