Ajagba Survives Knockdown To Claim 5th Round Win

Nigeria’s heavyweight boxer Efe Ajagba survived a third-round knockdown to claim a knockout win against Georgia’s Iago Kiladze, in the fifth-round at Toyota Arena, Ontario, California, on Saturday night.

The fight which was on the Tony Harrison-Jermell Charlo undercard, saw Kiladze’s trainer threw in the towel following a barrage of punches.

Referee Thomas Taylor was forced to stop their scheduled 10-rounder at 2:09 of the fifth round. 

The win saw Ajagba take his record to 12 wins, no defeats and 10 coming via knockouts.

In the third-round Ajagba was surprisingly knocked down by the 33-year-old Kiladze.

But after beating the count, an accurate left jab from Ajagba was followed by a powerful right hook, sending Kiladze to the floor and ending the fight.

    Truly proud of this guy Efe Ajagba. He is resilience personified. Reminds me of Lennox Lewis n Thomas Hearns in terms of vicious/ devastating punches. Will definitely go far. Only needs to continue to be humble. God bless Efe Ajagba, God Anthony Joshua.. God bless Nigeria. We can be the best in the world in many fields, I strongly believe in this. We only need to match our willness with action/ determination.
