Nigerian heavyweight boxer, Efe Ajagba, recorded his first professional defeat to Frank Sanchez on Sunday morning.

Ajagba lost by unanimous decision of 98-91, 98-91 and 97-92 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The fight was an undercard bout with Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder in the main event that was tagged the ‘Battle of the Undefeated’.

The 27-year-old could not land a clean right hand punch which he is known for, while Sanchez ran riot with steady stiff jabs.

Sanchez remains undefeated with 20 professional wins, 13 coming by Knock Out retaining his WBC Continental Americas heavyweight title and the WBO NABO heavyweight title.

Despite not landing any impactful jabs, Ajagba got through with a right hand late in the ninth round that bounced Sanchez into the ropes in the final seconds.
