Heavyweight boxing prospect Efe Ajagba believes he has what it takes to beat Nigerian-born British boxer Anthony Joshua.
Ajagba , who is unbeaten in 13 professional fights is rated among the best heavyweight prospects in the world.
“The people would support Joshua because he is the heavyweight champ,” Ajagba told Sky Sports.
“Skill would beat Joshua, not power,” said the undefeated Ajagba. “I and Joshua both have power. But skills control power.
“I have more skills.”
Surely Joshua, an Olympic gold medallist, and a two-time heavyweight champion has his fair share of skill?
“I don’t think so,” Ajagba says. “The best weapon of Joshua’s is the left hook and right uppercut. He doesn’t have a good jab.
“I respect him. He is the heavyweight champion. I respect everything about him – his talent and his potential. He is a humble guy.
“People are saying that I talk Joshua down. But I don’t want to do that.
“Joshua is from Nigeria so he is a part of Africa, too.”
