0

Undefeated Nigerian heavyweight boxing sensation, Efe Ajagba, is planned to make his Top Rank introduction against Jonathan Rice in a 10-round fight on September 19, at the Bubble, MGM Grand, in Las Vegas.

The session is an undercard battle to a 10-round junior welterweight main event between previous two-division titlist Jose Pedraza and Javier Molina.

The battle is Ajagba’s second of the year after his ninth-round knockout of Razvan Cojanu at the Barclays Center, New York in March.

Ajagba joined Bob Arum’s Top Rank in August having recently battled under Richard Schaefer’s Ringstar Sports Promotion since turning into an expert in 2017.

The 26-year-old is unbeaten in 13 battles, winning 11 of his sessions by means of knockouts, while Rice has lost multiple times and drawn once in 19 expert profession sessions.

American Rice lost two of his last five battles.

High level’s Vice President of Operations, Carl Moretti, advised boxing fans to anticipate a heated session.

“Anytime you have the opportunity to showcase an undefeated power-punching heavyweight who will be a player in the division shortly, it’s a win-win,” Moretti told BoxingScene.com.
