Nigeria heavyweight sensation, Efe Ajagba, is targeting a future title fight against British-Nigerian two-time unified heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua.
Ajagba, who is yet to make his Top Rank debut after signing with the renowned boxing promoters in August, says he has a superior fighting style compared to Joshua, an advantage that will see him win the bout if they square off in the ring.
The 26-year-old is unbeaten in 13 professional fights, winning 11 of his bouts by knockouts.
“Absolutely in the future,” Ajagba told Skysports about a potential clash with Joshua. “It would be perfect. Two Nigerian warriors fighting in a title fight.”
“Skill would beat Joshua, not power,” said the undefeated Ajagba. ”Me and Joshua both have the power. But skills control power.
“I have more skills. The best weapon of Joshua’s is the left hook and right Uppercut. He doesn’t have a good jab.
“I respect him. He is the heavyweight champion. I respect everything about him his talent and his potential. He is a humble guy.
“People are saying that I talk Joshua down. But I don’t want to do that. Joshua is from Nigeria so he is a part of Africa, too.”
CANDIIDONLINE recalls that heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua will be fighting IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev on December 12 at London’s 02 Arena as revealed by promoter Eddie Hearn.
