Nigeria Olympic Boxer Efetobore Ajagba Turns Pro In USA

Efetobore Ajagba who was Nigeria’s only representative at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, has quit the amateur ranks for a professional stint in the United States of America Ajagba had promised last year that he was done with the amateurs and would take his chances in the professional ranks.

But weeks and months of waiting for a reputable boxing camp to take him on in the United States finally materialized this week when he finally left the country in the company of ex-national team counterpart, Efe Apochi.

Both boxers left Lagos Tuesday night and are now in Houston, Texas. In a Facebook post on Thursday, Apochi confirmed that both boxers had already resumed training under the watchful eyes of their coach Ronnie Sheilds. Apochi and Ajagba were both bronze medalists at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, held in Glasgow.
