Nigeria’s highly-regarded heavyweight contender, Efe Ajagba, showcased his prowess by successfully defending his WBC Silver Heavyweight Title. In a stunning performance on Sunday morning, November 5, he secured a victory in the 4th round via TKO against Australian boxer Joe Goodall, further solidifying his impressive record at 19-1, including 14 knockout victories.
This high-stakes bout marked Efe Ajagba’s second-ever headlining event, hosted at the newly inaugurated Tahoe Blue Event Centre in Lake Tahoe. With this win, Ajagba marked his third consecutive victory this year.
Joe Goodall, having bested Ajagba in the amateurs, entered the fight with confidence, but Efe Ajagba established his dominance from the outset with a commanding display of jabs and powerful punches.
Although Goodall displayed resilience and refused to be knocked out, the referee, Tony Weeks, made the crucial decision to stop the fight early to safeguard Goodall from further damage.
Efe Ajagba’s remarkable win has potentially positioned him for a future opportunity to challenge the reigning WBC champion, Tyson Fury. It’s worth noting that Ajagba is currently ranked 7th by the WBC, adding further excitement to his promising career.
