Ashley Theophane Tops Mayweather Promotions Card on Oct. 8

LAS VEGAS - Former title challenger Ashley "Treasure" Theophane (39-7-1, 11 KO's) looks to redeem himself after a tough loss back in April as he headlines the main event of Mayweather Promotions Sin City Showdown, Saturday, October 8th from Sam's Town Live in Las Vegas.
 
"I have been in the gym training harder than ever and mentally preparing after coming up short against Adrien Broner earlier this year," said Theophane. "I'm excited to get back in the ring on October 8 and be the first to headline the monthly fight series at Sam's Town that Mayweather Promotions has put together. I will not disappoint. This is for my fans right here in Las Vegas to witness live, and my supporters worldwide. You can expect a great performance come fight night!"
 
The co-main will feature a battle for the NABF Super Middleweight Title featuring Mayweather Promotions' own Ronald "The Thrill" Gavril (16-1, 12 KO's). Also featured on October 8 are Mayweather Promotions' rising stars including undefeated super lightweight Sanjarbek "War" Rakhmanov (5-0-1, 3 KO's), Ladarius "Memphis" Miller (11-1, 2 KO's), who comes off of a win on Sept. 16th, and new members to the stable, Josue Vargas (6-0, 4 KO's), Xavier Martinez (6-0, 4 KO's), and Daniel Gonzalez (12-0, 5 KO's) all in separate bouts!

"It feels good to be back at Sam's Town. I like fighting in front of a full house and having an intimate feel. You don't always get that on the big shows when you have to go so early in the day before fans arrive," said Gavril.
 
"Last time I fought at this venue I was successful in beating my opponent and I got my fifth consecutive win. I feel confident that I am going to come out victorious again on October 8! I have been training hard and my only goal is to come home as the new NABF Super Middleweight champion. It is an honor to be the co-main on this card, and this is only the beginning of what I want to give back to my fans and the sport of boxing."
 
A night full of great boxing will take place under the Mayweather Promotions banner in Las Vegas. These fights will introduce a monthly fight series that will take place each month right here in Las Vegas at Sam's Town Live. Tickets start at $15 and are available online at: www.samstownlv.com/entertain and on www.mayweatherpromotions.com.

Danny Gonzalez (that's with Floyd) is NOT 12-0. These dang Boxrec writers, Danny Gonzalez that's with Floyd is 1-0.

Damn, AB promotions got more world champs than Floyd I think.

So what kind of dirt does Theopane have on Mayweather that Mayweather would bother with this non-descript fighter who loses every time we see him????
