Theophane Makes Title Defence On December 10

British Light Welterweight Champion Ashley Theophane defends his title on December 10th at Peterlee Leisure Centre in County Durham against the season long pro Nigel Wright.

Theophane won the title back in February when he out pointed the then current champion Lenny Daws, Theophane then went on to defend it against Jason Cook when he stopped him in the 10th round.

"I’m looking forward to defending my British title for the second time on Saturday 10th December.

"I’m sure Nigel Wright will be in great shape. I’m expecting a good fight but he will lose for the seventh time in his professional career.

"I’ve heard good things about the fans in County Durham so I’m excited about an electric atmosphere come show time.

"No other current 140lbs British fighter has achieved what I have so far in my career other than Amir Khan.

"2012 will see me win a World title and no one will stop me from achieving my goal. " Said Theophane

Former title challenger Nigel Wright and current English Light Welterweight Champion has been on a winning steak since he was out pointed by Ajose Olusegun back in June 2009 by defeating Alex Arthur and Dean Harrison.

Nigel Wright told “I let the British title slip through my hands once before and I wont be making the same mistakes again.

"I have seen a few of Ashley’s fights and I have seen a dent in his armor which I am going to take advantage of and come home as the New Champion”

Maloney thinks this will be a classic British title fight and will be expecting a hard 12 round fight as neither fighter has been stopped before.
