My Skill Will Beat Joshua-Ajagba
Efe Ajagba says his skill will defeat four belt holder Anthony Joshua. Ranked 11 by the WBA Ajagba destroyed Brian Howard with a deadly right Saturday night.
The Nigerian has expressed his readiness to take on his fellow Nigerian Joshua.
After beating Howard, he said: “I felt good. I tried to pick the punches, use the jab. This guy is very slick sometimes. I tried to do the job.
“He was shaky, so when I went back to the corner after the first round, my coach told me to take my time, start with the body, leave the head.”
“I trained for this fight, took my time, started with my boxing foundation, and came back strong.
“This camp was the best one for me, the best camp ever in my boxing career. It’s my time to shine, so I’m coming for the heavyweights.”
Despite the power puncher sending a frightening message out to the division, Ajagba’s son Ejiro Tiyon enjoyed it more than most.
Ajagba posted a video of his little boy’s reaction to the highlight-reel finish, which produced all smiles from Ejiro Tiyon.
He told Sky Sports in September: “The people would support Joshua because he is the heavyweight champ.
“Skill would beat Joshua, not power. Me and Joshua both have the power. But skills control the power. I have more skills.”
