LAS VEGAS - Efe Ajagba (10-0) made quick work of Michael Wallisch on Saturday night. The hard hitting Nigerian obliterated the overmatched German in two rounds at the Cosmopolitan Resort and Casino.
In the main event of the evening, former champions Robert Easter Jr. and Rances Barthelemy battled to a split draw. Viktor Postol defeated Mohamed Mimoune by unanimous decision in the co-feature bout to round out the tripleheader.
The fight was Ajagba’s Showtime debut and he passed his step up test with flying colors. He got off to a fast start as Wallisch’s face started to become bruised in the first round and after taking a knee in the second round, the fight was stopped by the referee seconds later.
After the fight Ajagba was in a great mood and didn’t have a scratch on his face. He said that he will return to the gym very soon because the plan is to return on the Jermall Charlo-Brandon Adams undercard.
“I will be back in the ring in June in Texas,” Ajagba told BoxingScene.com. “Jermall and I have the same trainer and I will be on his undercard.”
Ajagba was referring to world class trainer Ronnie Shields whose stable of fighters includes Charlo and several others. His opponent will be determined in the near future.
BoxingScene.com’s Keith Idec previously reported that Charlo-Adams could take place on either June 8th or 15th. Showtime will air the fight.
