After finishing his amateur career with a sensational winning record of 83-14, Chatham’s Steve Rolls moved on to bigger things Friday night in Edmonton winning his professional boxing debut with a unanimous decision.
According to media at the event, Rolls utilized a powerful jab and was extremely mobile in his fight, in which he defeated Saskatoon’s Paul Bzdel.
Rolls, who travelled the world during his amateur boxing career and captured two National Middleweight Championships entered the professional ranks at age 26, and will now begin training for another fight. Currently living in the Greater Toronto Area, Rolls is temporarily being promoted by KO Boxing until a larger group signs him on.
Steve Rolls’ fight was an undercard bout for the Canadian Boxing Federation’s cruiserweight title fight; however, if he continue’s winning, it’s only a matter of time before Rolls will find himself in his own professional boxing title fight.
