Newham-based welterweight prospect Ashley Theophane returned to Bethnal Green’s York Hall on Sunday to record an emphatic points win over Irishman Willie Thompson on the Miranda Carter show.

Globe-trotter Theophane was fresh from success in the USA, outpointing Delvin Rodriguez in Oklahoma and Germany, where he defeated Harasch Hotaki in Bayern.

Back at his regular venue in east London, Theophane displayed his superior skills against a willing rival as he boxed his way to a 60-55 points win.

London-based Leon Williams clearly out-pointed Watford’s JJ Ojuederie to win the vacant Southern Area cruiserweight title at the York Hall in the title top liner, winning by a score of 99-92.

The Miranda Carter promoted show also saw the return of former super-middleweight prospect Toks Owoh who managed to shake off the rust and outpoint the capable Hastings Rasani over four rounds.

Other results: middleweight Jimmy Ward drew 4 Peter Vaughan 38-38; middleweight Gary Boulden w pts 4 Stuart Tordoff 40-36; middleweight Ryan Toms w pts 6 Daryl Setterfield 60-54; welterweight Adam Battle w pts 4.
