Nigerian, Efe Ajagba on Saturday, March 9, continued his impressive career performance by dispatching veteran boxer, Amir Mansour in just two rounds in California, USA.
Concise News reports that having enjoyed a professional career spanning 15 years, one would expect 46-year-old Mansour to retire, but no. He decided to take on 24-year-old Ajagba in an undercard fight.
Expectedly, Ajagba showed the veteran why he has stayed unbeaten since he turned professional in 2017. Boxing Scene reports that he dominated the fight, dishing out punches that made Mansour tumble to the ground in the first round.
As if that is not enough, he again knocked him down twice. When the pummeling continued to the end of the second round, the referee had to end the fight after taking a good look at Mansour during the rest period.
This is just another step by the Delta-born boxer in his bid to dominate the heavyweight, and he is getting close to achieving that. In his own words:
“I want to be the best heavyweight in the world. That’s my dream. I’m going to go home and work hard and prepare for the next fight.”
Ajagba is Nigeria’s Commonwealth Bronze medalist, a two-time Gold African champion and Nigerian Rio 2016 Olympian.
