If you follow boxing, you should be familiar with our rising African heavyweight prospect boxer that is currently terrorizing his opponents and bringing a new wave to the sport. His name is Efe Ajagba, nicknamed "The One And Only."
"The One And Only"
Kid you not, the first time you watch this man in the ring, you feel the pain prior to the punches, and the terror prior to the knockout. At 24 year old, he is still undefeated, with a record of 7-0-0, with 6 Knockouts (KO) achieved.
Efe Ajagba is a Nigerian professional boxer who took up the sport of boxing in 2011 after previously playing football for a club in Ughelli since 2005. He was coached by Anthony Konyegwachie.
With an orthodox fighting stance, Ajagba won a gold medal at the 2015 African Games held in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, beating Keddy Angnes of the Seychelles by a score of 3-0 in the final.
He currently resides and trains in Stafford, Texas.
On August 24, 2018, Ajaba achieved the fastest victory in boxing history in a match against Curtis Harper. The victory came to the form of disqualification, as Harper decided to walk out of the ring right after the whistle of the first round, claiming a protest move over a pay dispute.
Ajagba's last fight which he won by KO was on September 30 against Nick Jones at the Citizens Bank Arena, Ontario, California.
We will be keeping an eye on our rising African boxing star as he shows promises and signs of being the future Heavyweight Champ of the World. The road is long, but surely attainable with gifts such as his.
