Efe Ajagba further fueled his growing reputation with a fifth – round knockout of his opponent Kiladze at the Toyota Arena in Ontario, California .
Ajagba knocked down Kiladze twice in the fight , first in the second round and then again in the fifth .
It was a win that came after Ajagba got up from the canvas following a knockout in the third round .
It was a knockdown that came in a highly unusual sequence.
A powerful right hand from Ajagba had wobbled Kiladze badly in the final minute of the third and the Nigerian backed away thinking his opponent would go down .
But Kiladze remained on his feet and landed a punch with his right hand on Ajagba and for the first time in his professional career , the Nigerian went down .
He , however, wasn ’ t badly hurt and beat referee Thomas Taylor ’ s count to continue the fight .
Ajagba continued his dominance and knocked out Kiladze in the fifth round .
The Georgia native , however, beat Taylor ’ s count to continue the fight but the referee stopped their scheduled 10- rounder at 2 : 09 of the fifth round as Ajabga continued to land numerous punches to his red which made Kiladze’ s trainer threw in the towel.
Ajagba , a 2016 Nigerian Olympian now has a 12- fight winning run with 10 knockouts .
As an amateur , he won a gold medal at the 2015 African Games and bronze at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
