Unbeaten heavyweight prospect Efe Ajagba, 8-0(7) is one of the hottest and most promising young fighters on the current scene. Trained by Ronnie Shields, the physically gifted and athletic Nigerian who is based in Texas will face what on paper could be his toughest test to date on March 9, as Ajagba will get in there with veteran Amir Mansour on the under-card of the Shawn Porter/Yordenis Ugas welterweight title fight in Carson.
Mansour, 23-3-1(16) has been in with some recognisable names, such as Steve Cunningham (a decision loss), Dominic Breazeale (a corner retirement loss due to a savage tongue injury) and, last time out, another heavyweight hope in Filip Hrgovic (a third-round stoppage loss), and though he has come up short, he is very much a respected fighter.
The Mansour vs Ajagba fight is scheduled for eight rounds.
Shawn Porter will take on Yordenis Ugas in a WBC welterweight title fight on March 9 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, in a PBC on FOX main event.
Porter (29-2-1, 17 KO) is a two-time welterweight champion, beating Devon Alexander for the IBF title back in 2013, before losing it to Kell Brook in 2014. He failed in another world title attempt in 2016, losing a decision to Keith Thurman, but rebounded in September of this year, taking a W over Danny Garcia to gain the then-vacant WBC title, which Thurman had given up due to injury.
Ugas (23-3, 11 KO) is a 32-year-old Cuban contender who has put together a really good run after it looked like he was going to wash out. The Miami-based fighter lost a pair of fights back in 2014 when he was at 140 pounds, but moved up and upset Jamal James in Aug. 2016.
