Ajose Olusegun: Erik Morales Can Run, But He Can't Hide!

WBC #1 ranked super lightweight contender, Ajose Olusegun (30-0, 14 Kos) has been patiently waiting for his opportunity to fight for the title.  Frustrated that he's been ducked by everyone in the division, Olusegun feels he's one of the most avoided fighter in boxing.

Ajose, who hails from Nigeria agitatedly stated, "I've done everything that was required of me to get my shot at the champion Erik Morales.  For some reason I've been bypassed but I'm not going anywhere.   All these guys can run but they can't hide and I'm going to stay on top ranked #1 in the world.  It's been my dream to strap the WBC belt around my waist since I first got ranked and I will not be denied.  Believe that!"

Advisor Damian Ramirez said, "Ajose is a great fighter and I have faith in our promoter that they'll get him his opportunity.  We should be fighting the winner of Erik Morales vs. Danny Garcia.  I want to schedule him on the undercard of Sergio Martinez March 17th.  In the mean time, I'm going to keep Olusegun busy in the gym and wait to see what Lou DiBella has lined up for us."

Olusegun is a slick southpaw who's worked his way to the #1 spot by beating everyone who's challenged him.  Having fought most of his fights in the UK, Ajose wants to make a name for himself here in the United States.  He's hoping his opportunity will come in 2012.

Olusegun could hide right in front of Morales.

I'm not a Morales fan. He takes things personal. But I dont think he's running. Maybe he hasn't fought Ajose because he's not really known and it wont bring any HBO or PPV buys.

Olusegun beats both Morales and Garcia. He would wear them down. Physically stronger and busier and has a solid chin.
