Ringnews24.com:  How did you get into boxing?
I used to watch the big fights in America on television with my dad. I enjoyed watching it so asked my mother and father if I could try it out. Three years later, they took me to all stars boxing club. The rest is history.

Ringnews24.com:  At what age did you start boxing and what / who inspired you to put on a pair of gloves?
I started boxing age 7 in 1988. Mike Tyson inspired me to be a boxer. That’s why the goal was always to come to America.

Ringnews24.com:  Who did you look up to growing up and who was your idol?
Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali.

Ringnews24.com:  Who is your favourite current fighter and why are they your favourite?
Current is Floyd Mayweather, for everything he has achieved in the sport and the influence he’s had on me in my career.

Ringnews24.com:  Where did your nickname “Treasure” come from? Does it have a special meaning?
It is my grandfather’s last name. I was born Ashley Treasure. That’s my original name.

Ringnews24.com:  I know that you’re part of the world famous “The Money Team” and fight under Mayweather Promotions – How did that come about and what made you make that change?
Long story short. I went to Floyd’s gym in Las Vegas. He told me he wanted to help me in my career. I never had no support or backing from the UK boxing industry. Floyd wanted to help me, where no one in the boxing industry had before and he has. I watched him train for his last seven fights, fought on three of his cards, and been his sparring partner twice.

Ringnews24.com:  How does it feel being part of “The Money Team” and having Floyd as a mentor?
It’s a great feeling. Over two years ago, he told me he was going to do certain things to help me and my career. He’s done everything and more. He’s a good person. He doesn’t get enough credit for the work he does outside the ring and the lives he helps.

Ringnews24.com:  I see you’re back in training, how is that going and who trains you?
I’m just getting in shape. It’s okay. It’s never enjoyable at the start. My team of trainers are Dave Brown, Jihad Abdul Aziz, Marcel Johnson and Nate Jones.

I want to achieve 50 professional wins and become world champion. My time scale is five years.

I have no desire to fight in the UK again.

Ringnews24.com:  If you could pick three fights to make in boxing what would they be?
Three fights I’d like during the next five years Adrien Broner, Lamont Peterson and Amir Khan. Three of the best of my era.

Ringnews24.com:  Aside from boxing do you have any other hobbies or interests that you pursue?
I enjoy politics, fine dining and travelling.

Ringnews24.com:  What other sports do you follow or take part in?
Running and Swimming are two sports I enjoy doing if I’m boxing or not.

Ringnews24.com:  Tell us something we don’t know about you or a fun fact?
I can bake cakes. Been doing it for 28 years. As long as I’ve been boxing.
