Nigerian boxer Efe Ajagba has disclosed his belief that the scheduled fight with Cuba’s Frank Sanchez on July 24 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will be a special ‘Night’ for his fans and critics alike.
The heavyweight prospect will face his fellow undefeated opponent in what many believe will be the undercard fight of the night outside Tyson Fury’s highly-anticipated third fight with Deontay Wilder.
Ajagba, currently ranked at No 9 by the WBC, can take a big step towards a heavyweight title fight with a victory over Sanchez, who sits at No 13 in the same rankings.
The former Olympian, Ajagba is still undefeated in 15 fights with 12 ending via knockouts. The fight against Sanchez will be the first time he returns to the ring after knocking Brian Howard out with a single right hand in the third round, a contender for ‘Knockout of the year’.
“I have been patiently waiting for this opportunity to showcase my skills,” Ajagba said about the forthcoming bout.
“My fans and critics can expect to see more jabs, head movement, footwork and power in both hands against Frank Sánchez. July 24 is going to be a special night for ‘The One and Only’ Efe Ajagba,” he added.
