Efe Ajagba vs. Iago Kiladze

10 rounds, heavyweights

Efe Ajagba (11-0) with 9 knockouts is a young heavyweight prospect from Nigeria. Since turning pro 2 years ago he seems to be developing at a face pace and his best attributes are his size, strength and power. In his last fight he was taken the distance against Ali Eren Demirezen. He was expected to win by a fast knockout but that just didn't happen. People forget or perhaps don’t know that Demirezen was a very good amateur with a long career so he knew how to avoid the big power shots from Ajagba who looked pedestrian at times in the fight. Ajagba still won a decision fair and square and gained some valuable experience. This time up he faces Iago Kiladze (26-4) from Georgia. Kiladze has lost 3 out of his last 4 fights but in his last fight he was able to get a draw against unbeaten Robert Alfonso (18-0).

Ajagba will not have the problems that he faced in his last fight because unlike Demirezen, Kiladze will not be hard to find and Ajagba wins this by knockout.
