Ashley Theophane has been around the game for awhile now, and he has had more than his share of big fights. Still the talented Brit believes he has a few more left in him. In fact, he is certain he isn’t far from having the opportunity to compete for a world title.
But first, he must get by his opponent this weekend when he takes on Miguel Zuniga as part of the ShoBox card that features many of his TMT teammates. A win here and it will be four consecutive victories Theophane has rattled off since he lost to Pablo Cesar Cano in September of last year. Should he look impressive, it will be easy to make a case that he should be among those considered for any of the titles held in the light welterweight division.
As for Theophane, he knows his time is now and he needs to make a move if he ever hopes to realize his dream of becoming a world champion.
We caught up with Ashley just a few hours before he heads to Texas to see what he thinks about this fight, as well as where he sees his career going in the next year or so.
