His humble beginnings gave him the humility to train relentlessly with some of the world’s greatest fighters in order to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to become a champion in the boxing world. His hard work would pay off on February 19, 2011 at the world renowned Wembley Arena in London, Ashley won his first British Lightweight Welterweight title by knocking down Lenny Daws twice in the ninth round, winning by unanimous decision. Again, on December 28, 2012, with a first round knock-out of Chaurembo Palasa to obtain his second GBC Welterweight title.
Ashley collaborated with the biggest name in sports and joined Mayweather Promotions (The Money Team) on September 14, 2013. His bout ended in a tough loss by split decision against Pablo Cesar Cano. However, his relentless drive to win was awarded with a technical knock-out against Angino Perez on the Mayweather vs Maidana undercard on May 13, 2014. Ashley would go on to a six game winning streak and a loss against Adrien Broner on April 1, 2016 for the vacant WBA Super Lightweight title. Ashley returned to victory and obtained his 40th win by unanimous decision on December 2, 2016 against Yakubu Amidu.
