Born in Stockton and now 30 years old, Avila overpowered Jeremy Stephens to claim a definitive unanimous victory on Saturday at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. The boxing bout, which consisted of six rounds, occurred during the pay-per-view event of Jake Paul vs. Nate Diaz. Avila (4-1) dominated with scorecards of 59-55, 59-55, and 60-54 against Stephens (0-1-1), further solidifying his unexpected ascent in boxing.
Avila, a longstanding teammate of Diaz, launched an intense, relentless assault on Stephens, landing 141 punches compared to Stephens’ 81. He began aggressively, landing a strong right hand as soon as the bell rang, and he never relented, persistently disrupting Stephens’ rhythm with a flurry of combinations.
Avila truly shone in the fourth round, delivering a series of right-hand blows to both the head and body of Stephens, leaving him reeling. He further rattled the 37-year-old Stephens with his repeated Diaz-style taunts. Unable to counter Avila’s agility and prolific attack, Stephens resorted to relying on single, powerful punches that Avila deftly avoided.
Since his return to boxing in December 2021 during the Paul vs. Woodley 2 card, Avila has now triumphed in four consecutive professional boxing matches.
