Nigeria’s highest-rated heavyweight, Efe Ajagba, successfully defended his WBC Silver Heavyweight Title by defeating Australian Joe Goodall in the 4th round via TKO, improving his record to 19-1 (14 KOs) on Sunday morning, November 5.

In his second-ever headlining event, which took place at the newly opened Tahoe Blue Event Centre in Lake Tahoe, Efe secured his third consecutive win this year.

 

Joe Goodall, who had previously beaten Ajagba in the amateurs, entered the bout with confidence. However, Ajagba set the tone with his jab and punches from the first round.

 

Goodall refused to be knocked out, but the referee Tony Weeks had to end the fight early to protect him from further damage.

With this win, Ajagba could get a shit at the WBC champion, Tyson Fury as the Delta born fighter is currently ranked 7th by the WBC .
