Theophane vs Amidu Headlines – Former WBA world 140 pound title challenger Ashley Theophane returns to action this weekend looking for his 40th career win as he faces Yakubu Amidu. Their fight is the main event of Leonard Ellerbe and Mayweather Promotion’s card at the Sam’s Town Hotel this Friday, December 2nd.
We last saw Theophane, a member of Floyd Mayweather Jr’s “The Money Team,” this past April when he lost to Adrien Broner in a bid for the vacant WBA world 140-pound title. The 36 year old Theophane has been on the sidelines since that loss, and here the Brit is returning to fight in his adopted hometown of Las Vegas. Amidu is 1-5-1 overall since the end of 2011, and he has not fought since October of 2015.
