Efe is Nigeria's sole representative in boxing at the Olympic Games and he outclassed his opponent in round one, to show why he is highly rated and tipped as a prospective medalist in the event.
Ajagba, who won the 2015 African Games showed a high level of confidence, aiming all his punches accurately which paid-off, and in less than a minute he sent Paul crashing.
No boxer has won by a knockout in Rio except the Nigerian, who won Bronze at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014. Ajagba has qualified for the quarter-finals and is billed to face a very stern test against Ivan Dychko from Kazakhstan on Tuesday, August 16. We wish him well!
