Harrison vs. Charlo II undercard

Efe Ajagba vs. Iago Kiladze

In other weights on the card, heavyweight contender Efe Ajagba (11-0, 9 KOs) weighed in at 237.75 lbs for his 10 round fight against Iago Kiladze (26-4-1, 18 KOs). For his part, Kiladze weighed in at 230.5 lbs. This fight isn’t expected to go the full 10 round distance, as Ajagba has a major advantage in punching power and talent.

The 33-year-old Georgian Kiladze has been knocked out in 3 out of his last 4 fights since 2018. He’s been stopped by the following heavyweights: Michael Hunter, Joe Joyce and Adam Kownacki. Kiladze was a good cruiserweight, but he’s not looked like the same guy since moving up to heavyweight in 2015.

The 25-year-old 2016 Olympian from Nigeria Ajagba is being brought along slowly by his promoters, who clearly don’t want to rush him at this early stage in his career. Unlike a lot of Olympians, Ajagba has got the youth to be moved slowly.

Ajagba possesses a lot of punching power, but he’s raw in terms of his boxing skills, and he can be hurt. It would be a mistake to put Ajagba in with a solid heavyweight contender, because there would be a good chance that he would be exposed.
