London - Leeds’ own British champion Bob Ajisafe is “excited” and “confident" he can deliver and progress into the MaxiNutrition Knockout final in front of his home town fans at Leeds Town Hall on May 17th, live on Channel 5.

The newly crowned British light heavyweight champion faces Swanley’s Southern Area champion Leon Senior and is “completely focussed” on giving it his absolute all.

“It’s a great chance to showcase my skills in front of my home town and personally it means everything to fight in Leeds," Ajisafe said.

"I’m really excited and looking forward to putting on a good performance for all the fans."

Ajisafe claimed his place in the semis with an inspiring display in a fight of the year contender against former British, Commonwealth, European, WBC International, WBO and IBO Inter-Continental champion Dean Francis at Rivermead, Reading.

The pair gave the fans a relentless display in a fight that swayed both ways for all 12 rounds.

By the final bell it was Ajisafe who was awarded a unanimous points win, but both men had shown exactly how much the competition meant to them.

That set up his semi-final showdown against Southern Area champion, Senior, who had progressed following a non-contest result against former Commonwealth title challenger Tony Hill.

After a promising start the fight was halted when Hill sustained a bad cut after an accidental clash of heads. Unable to continue, the fight was waved off with Southern Area champion, Senior, progressing.

“I’m not underestimating or overlooking Leon Senior, I’m making sure I’m on my game 100 percent,” Ajisafe said.

“I’m completely focussed and determined to come out victorious. It would mean a lot to get to the final – I’m looking to win the tournament and push forward.

"This is a great competition and I want to come out on top.”

This superb night of boxing will decide who will compete for the first ever MaxiNutrition Knockout title as well as feature a whole host of exciting talent on the undercard.
