  • Both Sanchez and Ajagba looked good, but Sanchez should have attacked more. He elected to move and box and won an easy decision, but did not establish himself as a future draw. He just played it too safe for my taste and never took any risks. He was the much bigger man, but never took any chances with the light-hitting Dawejko.

    As for Ajagba, he seemed to be putting more leverage into his shots. In previous bouts, he threw a lot of arm punches mixed in with some heavy shots. I didn’t like the way he left his chin in the air whenever he went on the offense. He needs to tuck that chin in and not stand up so straight. I expected him to get clipped at some point, but Cojanu spent too much time on defense without throwing back. A good win for Ajagba, but he needs more variety in his punches and be less predictable in his attacks.

  • I think Ajagba is coming long real nicely. He’s fighting MUCH better opposition in 10 fights than wilder did in 30. He’s got a better frame and seems to be progressing and polishing his skillset more with each fight. He’s picking up more tools and skills for his arsonal as he fights. I LOVE how humble he is!!!!
