Biography

Hailing from the same Maryland town that produced boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, super featherweight prospect Kevin Rivers Jr. has every intention of bringing more acclaim and championship belts back home in the coming years. A stellar amateur competitor who finished up with a 150-15 record that included a host of national and local titles, Rivers also earned the prestigious number ranking in the United States in 2009. After just falling short of making the 2012 Olympic team, Rivers turned professional in September of that year, decisioning David Warren Huffman. Two more wins followed before 2012 ended, and in the ensuing years, this talented young man has impressed at every turn with his skills, ring savvy and power. In 2015, Rivers added two more knockouts to his record, halting Stephon McIntyre and Luis Lizarraga Jr. in three rounds apiece to set up his first trip to the west coast as a professional when he battles an opponent to be named at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
