GEORGE “RED TIGER” ASHIE (32-5-1 24KO’s) was born Accra, Ghana where he fought in the streets before ever lacing them up in the ring. Growing tired of his fighting nature, George’s mom decided it was time to turn to boxing as a way to take out his aggression. It wasn’t long that a young George went from street fighter to a 16-year amateur stand out in Africa. George would go on to be a 3 time national champion.

Life in Ghana was tough while trying to rise the ranks in the boxing world. George has two children who raised as a single father but hopes that boxing is the way to get his children out of poverty. His dream remains to become a world champion to help his family, his kids and his mom.

In his 2003 pro debut, George took a shocking points loss in his pro debut. It would have been easy for him to lay his gloves down, but instead George decided to fight back. Over his next twenty bouts, George would accumulate a record of 17-2-1, receiving and cashing in on an opportunity to win the African Boxing Union Super Featherweight title when he defeated Taofik Bisuga by second round TKO.

Parlaying this opportunity, George would win the UBC Super Featherweight Title against Giorgi Mitchedlishvili, who was unable to come off the stool in the 9th. In 2012 George would fight Bilal Mohammad by second round stoppage, defending his ABF and UBC titles and adding the vacant Commonwealth Title. In 2014 George would beat Allan Kamote by yet another second-round stoppage to win the WBO Africa Lightweight Title.
