after he knocked down his opponent
Nigeria’s sole representative in boxing
at the Olympic Games outclassed his
opponent in round one, to show why he
is highly rated and being tipped as a
prospect for medal in the event.
Ajagba who won the 2015 African
Games showed a high level of
confidence, aiming all his punches
accurately which eventually paid-off,
and in less than a minute he sent Paul
crashing.
Of all the fights before this, nobody won
by a knockout except the Nigerian,
which stands him in a good position.
The 22-year-old who won Bronze at the
2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow
complemented his prowess with his
height to knockout his opponent.
Having now qualified for the quarter-
finals, Ajagba is billed to face a very
stern test against Ivan Dychko from
Kazakhstan on Tuesday, August 16.
