Hits: 0

Nigeria ’ s heavyweight boxing sensation , Efe Ajagba , improved his unbeaten boxing record to 14- 0 – 11 with a unanimous decision win over Johnnie Rice on Sunday despite fighting with an injured elbow .

The fight is Ajagba ’ s debut for new promoters Top Rank, after spending three years with former promoters Ringstar Sports and going unbeaten in 13 bouts , with 11 knockouts .

Ajagba scored big on the judges ’ cards in the fight . Judge Max DeLuca had the bout 98- 92, while judges Adalaide Byrd and Dave Moretti scored it 99 – 91 in favour of the heavyweight prospect .

The 26- year – old Nigerian landed 131 – of – 406 in total punches , far exceeding the pedestrian effort of Rice, who had just 39 – of – 269 , according to Compubox , in a dominating but lukewarm debut .

That fight saw Ajagba fight through an injured elbow for much of the night , with the 26-year old heavyweight reportedly injuring his right hand earlier in the rounds.

It means Rice suffered his second straight defeat in 2020 .

The 33- year – old was stopped in the 10th and final round of a March 7 clash versus Demsey McKean . Both losses have been to undefeated opponents .

This is the second time Ajagba has gone the distance, a lesson the boxer says he has learnt from as he focuses on his next bout.


He wrote on Instagram after the fight , “ My second time going the distance , a valuable lesson learned .

Improving on to 14- 0 , I’ ll be back soon !!”
