Ashley Theophane looks back on ‘The Moment’

A week has passed, but the joy of victory is still very much with me.

I notched up my 35th win at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas – a world away from West London.

I battled the tough knock out artist Angino Perez. Perez had a 90% knock out ratio. He had been in with good fighters like world champion Richard Abril, and contender, Carlos Molina.
I dropped Perez in the second with a left hook, and the referee stopped the fight with 30 seconds to go in the fourth round. Perez was out on his feet whilst I pounded him with shots. It was a very entertaining fight.
