In the last two years, Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum has begun to stock up on heavyweights.
In early 2018, Arum's company signed a co-promotional agreement with now WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
Since then, Arum has signed up fighters like 2016 Olympic gold medal winner Tony Yoka, Jared Anderson, Guido Vianello, Oscar Rivas, Carlos Takam and others.
And more recently, Arum signed up hard-hitting Efe Ajagba (13-0, 11 KOs), who parted ways with promoter Richard Schaefer.
James Prince, who manages Ajagba, has high hopes for the boxer's ability to grow.
"I think he is a really great prospect and has a lot of room to grow,” Prince told Yahoo Sports. “He kind of reminds me of [Basketball Hall of Famer] Hakeem Olajuwon in terms of his athletic ability and the things he can do. He has a lot of room to grow as a fighter."
Arum's company president is fully on board with their direction to secure top talent in the heavyweight division.
“We’ve talked a lot about the talented young heavyweights coming up behind Fury, [Deontay] Wilder and [Anthony] Joshua,” Top Rank president Todd duBoef said.
For decades Arum's company has primarily pushed the smaller weight divisions, but in recent years there has been a big demand for hard-hitting heavyweights.
“No matter how much you tell them, ‘Hey, these little guys in the lower weights are more exciting and make better fights,’ the people love the f--king heavyweights,” Arum told Yahoo Sports.
“There is nothing wrong with stocking up on some talented young heavyweights and putting them out there. I mean, these guys all have a lot of ability and we can put a lot of good fights on with them.”
