Efe Ajagba: A Rising Contender

Ajagba, the Nigerian powerhouse, made headlines with his stunning knockout of Brian Howard in 2021, catapulting him from prospect to heavyweight contender. Known for his thudding power and underrated boxing skills, Ajagba poses a formidable challenge for any contender and he's now on the verge of entering the world top 10. His upcoming bout against Ortiz marks the biggest test of his career thus far, considering where Frank Sanchez was at when Ajagba lost a decision to him. Ajagba also recently scored an impressive stoppage of Joe Goodall and had an unfortunate disqualification win over Zhan Kossobutskiy.

Luis Ortiz: A Seasoned Warrior

Luis "King Kong" Ortiz, despite falling short in fights against Deontay Wilder and Andy Ruiz, remains a force to be reckoned with in the heavyweight division. With his southpaw stance, crafty boxing, jolting power and impressive counter-punching skills, Ortiz has proven time and again that he cannot be underestimated.

Luis Ortiz recently stopped Charles Martin and lost a close decision to Andy Ruiz.

At 44 years old, Ortiz still defies age stereotypes in boxing. Following a close decision loss to Andy Ruiz Jr in 2022, Ortiz recently 'bounced back' with an off-the-radar fight in Colombia to just stay active and ranked. While some doubt Ortiz's ability to still compete at the highest levels of the division, his recent performances suggest otherwise. His stoppage win over Charles Martin somehow has fallen under the radar of many of his critics. Keyboard warriors relish at the chance to mock Ortiz's age, but one can rest assured that Ajagba will expect the best version of the Cuban star.

Drawing parallels to George Foreman's legendary comeback, Ortiz aims to defy the odds and reclaim heavyweight glory. With his size, punching power, and superior boxing acumen, Ortiz presents a genuine threat to Ajagba and his aspirations.

Fight Night

Can Ortiz turn back the clock and secure a victory over the younger, ferocious Ajagba? Or will Ajagba's relentless power be too much for the seasoned veteran? It's a high-risk showdown that could reshape the top heavyweight landscape.

In the ring, anything can happen, and on April 13th, all eyes will be on Corpus Christi as these contenders collide in a battle to be included among the division's top 10.

Contender Jared Anderson is also slated to appear on the card, perhaps as the headliner. Stay tuned for updates.
