Ashley Theophane in action on May 18th
On 18th May, Miranda Carter breaks her run of Sunday afternoon shows at the home of British boxing to host an evening of boxing at Grays in Essex. The Civic Hall is smaller and more modern than York Hall but packs a great Saturday night atmosphere.
Ashley Theophane returns to Britain after nine weeks at the Mayweather boxing club in Las Vegas to fight on the show.
Theophane will be looking to add to his record of 33 wins, 1 draw and 5 loses. This will be his 40th fight and marks his 10th anniversary as a professional boxer.
Ashley has had a roller coaster career with four championship titles which include, British, IBO International and two Global Boxing Council titles. He has been ranked fourth in the world by the International Boxing Federation. His most notable fights have been against Danny Garcia, Delvin Rodriguez, DeMarcus Corley, Lenny Daws and Jason Cook.
This year has seen Theophane linked with Americans, junior middleweight world title contender David Estrada and lightweight Ty Barnett. The fights fell through when the Americans were not too keen to fight the globe trotting Theophane.
Theophane’s reign as British champion ended 12 months ago, since then he has fought in North Carolina and Luxembourg which both ended win victory.
During Theophane’s training camp in Las Vegas he sparred with world number 6 Shawn Porter, world number 15 Vernon Paris, Mayweather promotions Mickey Bey and two weight world champion Celestino Cabellero.
There will be six other fights on the Left jab promotion, with some of Britain’s rising stars getting a run out. Kris Agyei-Dua, Eren Arif, Robin Dupre, Areti Mastrodouka, Matt McCarthy and Marco Stephenson.
Grays Civic Hall has a growing reputation as a small-hall venue and shows often sell out.
