Unbeaten hard punching Nigerian heavyweight contender Efe
"The One And Only" Ajagba will battle Iago Kiladze in a 10
round fight shown live on Fox & Fox Deportes.
Nigeria's Ajagba (11-0, 9 KOs) most recently passed the
toughest test of his professional career when he defeated
fellow 2016 Olympian Ali Eren Demirezen by 10-round
unanimous decision in July. The 25-year-old Ajagba went
viral around the world in August 2018 when his opponent,
Curtis Harper, walked out of the ring after touching gloves
to start the first round. Ajagba won the fight without
throwing a punch as Harper was disqualified. Living in
Stafford, Texas and training with Ronnie Shields, Ajagba has
increased his competition and added knockouts wins over Amir
Mansour and Michael Wallisch this year.
The 33-year-old Kiladze (26-4-1, 18 KOs) broke a three-fight
losing streak by fighting to a split draw in May against
undefeated heavyweight Robert Alfonso. Kiladze's losses had
come against top heavyweight Adam Kownacki, Michael Hunter
and Joe Joyce, who own a combined 34-1 record. Kiladze is
originally from Georgia and now fighting out of Los Angeles.
This boxing event is headlined by the highly anticipated WBC
Super Welterweight Title rematch between Tony "Superbad''
Harrison and Jermell "Iron Man'' Charlo.
