25/06/08 ASHIRA: ROBERT
LARSEN HAS NOT PAID UP FOR THE FIGHT!!
light middleweight champion Evans “The African Warrior” Ashira
(29-3, 15 KOs) is furious with Danish promoter Robert Larsen
who staged the Copenhagen-based Kenyans April 19 title fight against
former European champion Mahmadou Thiam, a bout Ashira won by sixth
“This guy is such a crook! It’s been more than two months now, and
Larsen hasn’t paid me for the fight yet. He keeps coming up with
all sorts of excuses, and now I have had enough! I have been very
patient with him, but he is so full of B.S. it’s unbelievable, and
he should shut his fat mouth”, says the former WBA and WBO world
Ashira, who is a freelancer with no promotional or managerial ties
to Larsen, also reveals that he was lead to believe by the promoter
that the Thiam-bout would be for the IBO Intercontinental title,
and only found out afterwards that this was a lie and that in reality
it was for the much less prestigious UBO I/C bauble.
On top of that, the fighter has still not received the belt he won,
as the promoter has not paid for it yet.
Larsen should stop running around playing big-shot when he can’t
even pay the boxers who fight on his shows. He is a sad joke, and
I can only warn anybody who is considering doing business with him
to think again. I know for a fact that I am not the only one he
Ashira is taking legal action to finally get his purse!

Floyd Mayweather and Arthur Abraham, and, like Kessler, he
also fought the legendary Joe Calzaghe, loosing on points after

The fight started on even terms with both fighters having their
share of success, and with the experiencing some difficulties in
establishing his rhythm, but as the rounds progressed, Ashira started
taking over and applied more and more pressure on Thiam. From the
4th round it was apparent that the Frenchman was getting less and
less dangerous, and looked like a matter of time before Ashira would
be able to mount his final attack.
The end come 1.05 of the sixth round, when Ashira pinned Thiam against the
ropes and connected with hard body-shots before going to the head
and landing two crushing left hooks which send Thiam down for the

in the Copenhagen-resident.

last September, and his first back. He hopes that one of the big
names in light middleweight division will be next:

but i think i did not take easy fight back, and feel like i will
be ready to take on anybody in the world next time out"
" I am a promotional free agent, so there are nobody holding me down. If any
of the World Champions out there are looking for live opponent who
is easy to deal with, let their people should call my manager Jan
Andersen. I'm ready to roll with anybody! "
