Olusegun Ajose Defeats Ali Chebah To Earn Erik Morales

By Chris LaBate

Chumash Casino, Santa Ynez, California - In a WBC junior welterweight mandatory eliminator, Olusegun Ajose (30-0, 14KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Ali Chebah (35-2, 28KOs). Ajose becomes the mandatory challenger to champion Erik Morales. The scores were 120-106, 119-107 and 119-107.

Ajose put on a show, coming out with fast combinations and started throwing a lot of punches with both hands. In the third, he was winding up with his punches and dropped Chebah two times. Ajose was showboating and almost landing at will. In a dramatic fourth, both fighters were stunned and survived at different points on the round. Ajose controlled much of the action and landed a lot more punches to buckle Chebah a few more times in the fight. Chebah tried to get something going, but he often took four punches in return for one.

Rising lightweight contender Darley Perez (23-0, 18KOs) stopped Oscar Meza (22-5, 18KOs) in six rounds.

Perez started with a busy pace. He was working a strong jab in the first, and landing left hands off the lead punch. Perez started to let his hands go more often in the second round. Perez shaken a little bit in the fourth and then there was an accidental clash of heads in the fifth. After taking some more punishement in the sixth round, Meza did not come out for the seventh round.
