Ashley Theophane in action this Saturday, May 18th
Ashley Theophane steps into the ring for his 40th professional fight at the weekend. Returning from nine weeks at the Mayweather boxing club in Las Vegas, he fights on Miranda Carter’s show in Grays, Essex on Saturday 18th May.
The 32 year-old former British champion has a record of 33 wins, 1 draw and 5 defeats. This fight also marks his 10th anniversary as a professional boxer. Since his reign as British champion ended a year ago, he has won fights in North Carolina and Luxembourg.
This year Ashley has been linked with 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.
Ashley (aka Treasure) has had notable fights against Danny Garcia, Delvin Rodriguez, DeMarcus Corley, Lenny Daws and Jason Cook. As well as the British title, he has won IBO International and two Global Boxing Council belts.
Local boxers also feature on the show at Grays Civic Hall –
undefeated Matt McCarthy, Southern Area contender Kris Agyei-Dua, and cruiserweight Robin Dupre.
