Nigerian boxer, Efe Ajagba, on Sunday morning defeated Stephan Shaw via a unanimous decision in a 10-round bout at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, New York, USA.
NEWSBREAK reports that Ajagba, nicknamed ‘The Silent Roller’ won the battle against previously undefeated Shaw.
The Ughelli, Delta State-born fighter was the aggressor for almost all the rounds, whereas Shaw seemed reluctant to engage the hard-hitting African.
Judges Eric Marlinski, John McKaie and Don Trella scored the encounter identically, 96-94 for Ajagba.
Ajagba (17-1, 13 KOs), a 2016 Olympian, won a second straight fight since Frank Sanchez beat him.
Recall that Cuba’s Sanchez (21-0, 14 KOs) dropped Ajagba in the seventh round and comfortably out-pointed him on all three scorecards in a 10-rounder that was part of the Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder undercard in October 2021 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Ajagba underwent surgery on both elbows following his loss to Sanchez. He fought Jozsef Darmos last August and won. Healthier and more confident, he promised he would box better against Shaw, and the 28-year-old was true to his word.
