"The One and Only"









Efe Ajagba is a Nigerian professional boxer known for his incredible power and remarkable record in the ring. He made his professional debut on July 30, 2017, against Tyrell Herndon and won via 1st round knockout. Since then, he's gone on to win 17 out of 18 fights, with 13 of those victories coming by knockout.

The 6'6" boxer has made a name for himself as a heavy-handed puncher with exceptional technique and excellent athleticism. He's managed to defeat some notable opponents, including Razvan Cojanu, Ali Eren Demirezen, and Amir Mansour. He's known for his precision in the ring and his ability to land powerful punches on his opponents.

Ajagba's only loss came against Frank Sánchez in a 10-round unanimous decision on October 9, 2021. Sánchez managed to outwork Ajagba in the fight, landing more punches and winning on all three judges' scorecards. Despite the loss, Ajagba bounced back and won his next fight via a unanimous decision after going the full 10 rounds with Stephan Shaw in January 2023.

A standout feature of Ajagba's boxing style is his knockout power. He's won 13 of his 17 fights via knockout, which is an impressive feat. Some of his most memorable knockouts include his victory over Kiladze, where he knocked him out in the fifth round, and his first-round knockout against Santino Turnbow. While he's known for his power, Ajagba also has a solid defense, making him a well-rounded fighter.

At just 27 years old, Ajagba has plenty of time to continue growing as a fighter and potentially even earn himself a world title. One area he must improve upon is his stamina and endurance, as he's struggled to go the distance in some of his fights. Nonetheless, his talent and skills are undeniable, and he's already made a name for himself in the boxing world.

Looking forward, Ajagba will have plenty of opportunities to showcase his skills and add to his impressive record. Fans and boxing enthusiasts alike will be eagerly awaiting his next fight in the ring, where he'll undoubtedly continue to impress with his technique, power, and determination.
