Boxing: I will not relent to make impact in the World - Ajose


Africa's Lightweight Champion, Olusegun Ajose, says he will not relent in his effort to make positive impact in the World's Lightweight category, as he has conclude plans to engage himself in an international challenge contest, in 2017.

The 1999 South Africa All-Africa Games, Gold medalist, in light welterweight category, said he would not over rely on support from Federal or State Government, corporate bodies and sports philanthropists to embark on a thorough training programme ahead of the challenge contest.

On why he failed to fight in 2016, Ajose, explained that apart from the injury he sustained while training, his opponents withdrew from the contest after they were briefed of his present revitalized form.

The Nigerian pugilist, who had a record of fourteen knock-out, thirty wins and two defeat to Lucas Mathysseu and Hank Lundy, said he was mentally fit for the contest billed for England, in June, adding that he would be fighting a yet to be named boxer.

On the twenty- sixteen Governor's Boxing Belt, organized by Lagos Boxing Hall of Fame, LBHF, Ajose, said the competition was a good concept which had improved the standard of amateur boxing in Lagos State.
