Kelly Swanson

Thanks everybody for joining us today for “THE ONE” media conference call with the pay-per-view undercard fighters. At this point, I’m going to turn it right over to our hosts of the call; that’s both Oscar De La Hoya and Leonard Ellerbe; Oscar is President of Golden Boy Promotions and Leonard Ellerbe is CEO of Mayweather Promotions. So I’m going to turn it over to Oscar, and then he will introduce Leonard.

Oscar De La Hoya
Yes. We are one month away from the mega event, “The One: Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez,” which will be a 12-round fight for Canelo’s WBC and WBA and Ring Magazine Super Welterweight World title and Mayweather’s WBA Super Welterweight Super World Championship. We also have a tremendous co-main event, Danny Garcia vs. Lucas Matthysse, which obviously you all know that fight could have been a pay-per-view itself, but for the fans Mayweather decided along with Ellerbe and Golden Boy Promotions that this fight belongs on the big stage along with Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez. That will be a unification fight for the lightweight world title. Also, Mayweather promotions put on a tremendous undercard, co-main event with Ishe Smith vs. Carlos Molina. Ishe Smith is promoted by Mayweather Promotions. Also another spectacular fight with Pablo Cesar Cano, who had a tremendous fight against Sugar Shane Mosley in Cancun, Mexico a few weeks ago, is fighting against Ashley Theophane, which will be a ten-rounder in the welterweight showdown.

cestus_management_britishLONDON, ENGLAND, July 24, 2011 — Cestus Management’s British welterweight champion and the I.B.F. number 12 ranked contender Ashley “Treasure” Theophane scored an impressive 10 round stoppage victory over tough and rugged former European and IBO Champion Jason “Power” Cook.  The event was held at the Wembley Arena in London England and was the co-main event of the Tyson Fury vs Dereck Chisora British and Commonwealth heavyweight Title clash.  The fight was televised across the United Kingdom on Channel 5 UK Terrestrial Television. 

Cook, a solid veteran brawler, pressed the action early by taking the fight to the “Treasure” in hopes of landing something big in order to gain an advantage.  This would be a mistake as Theophane executed a great fight plan, controlling the pace and action of the contest by landing solid combination’s to both the body and head of “Power.”  The first six rounds of the fight made for great drama as Cook attacked and Theophane countered effectively.

cestus20fighter20ashley20theophane20poster_july20201020medresCestus Management’s 140-to-147 pound world contender Ashley Theophane scored an impressive decision victory over IBF number 3 ranked welterweight Delvin Rodriguez.  Theophane displayed superb boxing skills as he constantly kept Rodriguez off balance by stepping around the Dominican’s offense and landing sharp combination’s to clearly win a close action packed fight.  Rodriguez, who is a former 3 time world title challenger, worked hard but in the end, Theophane just proved to be the better fighter. The fight was the main event and took place at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma and was televised live on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights. 

The ‘Tresure’ had this to say right after the fight, “I’ll fight any top fighter in the world, I’m ready for any of them. I finally found myself and anyone who wants to step up and fight lets do it tomorrow. I hit  Delvin (Rodriguez) with some real hard shots and he still kept coming and never quit. I was ready to do anything to win this fight and I did. Me and my team (CESTUS) worked too hard for this and I knew I couldn’t let anyone of them down. This win is special and I can’t explain how good I feel inside. I promise whoever wants to listen that there is a lot more to come from me in the future. Like I said I’ll fight any top fighter in the world. I want a shot at a world title.” (continue reading…)
