Ashley ‘Treasure’ Theophane is the British boxing light welterweight champion. Having trained with some of the world’s greatest fighters in the toughest gyms from London to Brooklyn, Ashley has forged an enviable reputation for carving his own path in the sport – managing himself in the nascent years of his professional career, whilst fighting across the globe to build his impressive boxing credentials.

With much of his youth spent on the wrong side of the law, and heavily involved with the gangs and criminal underworld of inner-city London, the inevitable stretch in prison that followed proved a Damascan experience; bringing with it a change in perspective and motivation, and instilling a newfound inner-drive based on focus and discipline.

His release without conviction six months later gave Ashley a second chance; closing the door on his previous life and throwing himself into his natural talent for boxing, whilst equally furthering his education and raising awareness of the dangers of gun and knife crime for the under-privileged urban youth. He has never looked back.

With no money behind him and little support back in the UK, he set off to New York aged 22 to fight in the small halls across the world; training relentlessly, sparring with the very best, learning the art of winning and beginning the long road back to Wembley and his recent British title fight victory against Lenny Daws, followed by a stunning title defence against former European champion Jason Cook.

From the humblest of origins and the murkiest of backgrounds, it’s a rehabilitation that has not gone unnoticed in the boxing world and across the wider media. For some he remains a mysterious and softly spoken ‘outsider’ who has let his talent do the talking, for others he offers the very best traits that any mentor or role model has to offer – having ‘been there, done that’ and with the battle scars, confidence and humility to prove it.

It’s a journey that has propelled Ashley Theophane into a genuine world title contender and the boxing elite; a fighter who understands and exemplifies the art, tactics and reading of the sport as much as the critical physical conditioning. Talent and determination have brought him this far and he now stands on the cusp of greatness – a giant step that he can, and will, take. Watch this space. Because Ashley Theophane will soon be the name on everybody’s lips.
