Nigerian Olympian Ajagba makes 3rd pro appearance on Saturdays Brooklyn card.


Nigerian 2016 Olympian Efe Ajagba has his third pro outing this weekend, down the card at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn.. Ajagba 2-0 (2 Ko's) missed out on a medal in Rio, but showed glimpses of his power with knockouts in each of his winning bouts.. Efe was a Bronze medalist in the 2014 Commonwealth games in Glasgow and a 2015 Gold medalist in the All Africa Games. Ajagba has already fought twice this year, beating Luke Lyons and Tyrell Herndon, both by stoppage.. On Saturday he will face Rodney Hernandez 10-6-2, and will get his first close up look at a Heavyweight Championship event, an experience that will only add to the fighters taste for future glory.. Nigeria have a rich history of heavyweights, with guys like David Izoneratei, Duncan Dokiwari, David Defiagbon and Ike Ibeabuchi all falling short of title honours, with only Samuel Peter claiming a portion back in 2008. Ajagba now based on US soil has every chance of continuing a great tradition and perhaps winning a championship of his own one day..
