Fred Evans (born 4 February 1991) is a Welsh professional boxer who represented Great Britain, fighting in the 69 kg welterweight category. He won gold for Wales at the 2011 European Amateur Boxing Championships in Ankara and had previously won gold at the 2007 World Cadet Championships in Hungary. He was ranked sixth in the world at 69 kg and became the first Welsh boxer to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games at 2011 World Amateur Boxing Championships in Baku, Azerbaijan.
In October 2014, Evans was given a suspended jail term after punching a friend - despite a judge saying he "deserved" prison. Evans admitted unlawfully wounding Michael Wilson at a Gloucestershire pub, breaking his jaw. The boxer's coach, Nigel Davis, made an impassioned plea for him to be spared a jail term.
