In the round of 16 of the men’s super heavyweight category, Ajagba faced Trinidadian boxer Nigel Paul and knocked him out in just the first round!


He will now face Ivan Dychko from Kazakhstan in the quarter-finals on Tuesday and a win against Dycho will mean Ajagba will be guaranteed at least a bronze medal if he doesn’t go further.
