Unbeaten hard punching Nigerian heavyweight contender Efe “The One And Only” Ajagba will battle Jack Mulowayi in a 10 round fight shown live on Showtime.
Nigeria’s Ajagba (11-0, 9 KOs) most recently passed the toughest test of his professional career when he defeated fellow 2016 Olympian Ali Eren Demirezen by 10-round unanimous decision in July.
The 25-year-old Ajagba went viral around the world in August 2018 when his opponent, Curtis Harper, walked out of the ring after touching gloves to start the first round.
Ajagba won the fight without throwing a punch as Harper was disqualified.
Living in Stafford, Texas and training with Ronnie Shields, Ajagba has increased his competition and added knockouts wins over Amir Mansour and Michael Wallisch this year.
Fighting out of Antwerpen, Belgium, by way of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mulowayi (7-1-1, 3 KOs) will make his U.S. debut on October 26 in a pro career that dates back to 2015.
