Demirezen named for Ajagba on July 20
Rising unbeaten heavyweight sensation and 2016 Nigerian Olympian Efe Ajagba will square off against undefeated 2016 Turkish Olympian Ali Eren Demirezen on Saturday, at the Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The 10-round heavyweight attraction will feature two 2016 Olympians putting their unbeaten records on the line as they look to make a statement in the red-hot division.
Ughelli, Nigeria’s Ajagba (10-0, 9 KOs) gained fame last August 24 when his opponent, Curtis Harper, walked out of the ring after touching gloves to start the first round.
The 24-year-old won the fight without throwing a punch as Harper was disqualified. Ajagba, who lives in Stafford, Texas, and trains with Ronnie Shields, has steadily increased his competition in his two fights this year, stopping Amir Mansour in March in two rounds, before disposing of Michael Wallisch in April in two rounds as well.
