Ashley Theophane claims German strap in 50th pro outing
Ashley Theophane picked up the German International super-welterweight belt over the weekend after travelling to Brandenburg for what was the former British title holder’s landmark 50th bout.
The 37 year-old Mayweather Promotions fighter got back in the win column following a shock loss to Shoki Sakai last time out and had too much in his locker for Georgia’s Paata Varduashvili,
Theophane got the job done in seven completed rounds on the back of winning every round against an outclassed opponent.
After the fight, ‘Treasure’ penned another one of his regular columns to give his thoughts on a special achievement of reaching his half-century.
“I flew into Berlin with the mission of leaving here as the German International champion,” said Theophane.
“Germany has been good to me over the years. Since 2006 I’ve picked up three championship titles and I’m undefeated on these shores.
“I last fought in August at Sam’s Town Casino in Las Vegas as part of the Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor preview show. My 10th fight with Mayweather Promotions over 4 years.
“Floyd is currently on tour in China. While he spreads “The Money Team” brand in Asia. I’m representing in Europe.
“I’ve now won 5 championships out of 6; British champion. IBO International champion. German International champion and 2 x Global Boxing Council champion.
“Falling short whilst attempting to claim the WBA world championship from the four-weight legend, Adrien Broner,” he added.
Through those 50 mentioned outings, Theophane has amassed an impressive 41-8-1 record.
