Boxing News: Ashley Theopane looks to shake off his domestic defeat


Last night Ashley Theopane lost his British Light Welterweight title to Darren Hamilton in a 12 round fight on the Price-Sexton undercard. Theopane, a heavy favourite going into the match, was outpointed by a focused and technically proficient Hamilton.

This was the upset of the night and will prove to be the upset of the month unless Carl Froch completely wipes out Lucian Bute. Theopane (31-5-1) was on a streak of six wins and was tipped to be fighting for a world belt soon. Hamilton, a late replacement after Steve Williams dropped out, was only expected to be a placeholder; he was never expected to actually win the title.

Before the fight, Theopane alluded in his blog to the fact that late-comers can sometimes cause a boxing upset. He wrote:
'He [Hamilton] may be a 6-1 underdog, and I may be a 10-1 on favourite, but boxing is littered with upsets, especially ‘late notice’ ones, so you can never take anyone lightly.'
Now, there is the argument here the Theopane spent so long training to fight Steve Williams that when another fighter stepped into the ring, it threw him off. Theopane himself acknowledged this before the fight:
'It was very disappointing not to fight Steve, as I was mentally focused for battle with him'.
So what's next for Ashley Theopane? According to World Boxing News, Theopane plans on hunting for world titles. He cited a lack of motiviation for domestic fights as the source of his lacklustre performance, and he believes the only place for his talent is on the world stage. I'm sure last nights loss won't derail him completely, but he won't be given a world title shot until he has made up for it.
