Ashley Theophane: Back In Las Vegas

I’m now back in Las Vegas, the city of sin, in the land of opportunity. It was great to be home, but it’s just as good to be back at the gym.

This is my fourth training camp as a Mayweather Promotions fighter.

The nine weeks I’ve just spent back home in London, informed me that the hard work and sacrifices I have had to make, leaving my friends and family back in the UK, in order to make the most of my ability in the fight capital of the world – is well appreciated. Continue reading

Billy Joe Saunders backs Frankie Gavin to beat Leonard Bundu this Friday night

New European Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders has backed friend Frankie Gavin to beat Leonard Bundu this Friday night in Wolverhampton and become European Welterweight Champion.

Saunders defeated Italian Emanuele Blandamura last Saturday in Manchester with a stunning eighth round stoppage to add the prestigious European belt to his British and Commonwealth titles, and believes Birmingham star Gavin can halt Bundu to become a triple champion.

Fighting in the main event because of Tyson Fury pulling out of his dangerous fight against Alexander Ustinov, Saunders showed a lot of maturity in calmly dealing with a very difficult opponent in 34-year-old Blandamura. Saunders had to stay patient because Blandamura had better hand speed, and he was putting a lot of pressure on him all fight long. Continue reading

Fury pulls out of Ustinov fight: One bizarre week in British boxing!

Who’d be a boxing promoter!

This time last week, fight fans, especially British heavyweight fight fans, were looking forward to the scheduled and quite long since announced return meeting between colourful characters (an understatement) Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora. The fight was given an extra element of spice thanks to Fury’s shenanigans at the London, open to the public, press conference.

Fury was on his A-game when it came to trash talking and being as funny as he was crude. The BBB of C didn’t enjoy what he did, or had to say (especially the latter), but some fans sure did.
