    Hopefully, they both show up in shape & ready to put in their best efforts. If they do, it'll easily be the fight of the night.
    I'll be pulling for Dawejko though as I've been corresponding with him via the BoxRec message board on & off since he first turned pro.

    If he enters the fight in full sparring partner mode like he did against Parker he could take Ajagba a few rounds.

    Well, let's hope for young Ajagba's sake that Cojanu does so & that he gets a couple-few rounds of work in. At this point that will do him more good than a first-round KO win would.

    Efe struggled a bit with Demirezen, who's a lot better than people realize, but he showed that he has a great engine. 877 punches over 10 rounds is outstanding for such a big guy.

    Oh, for sure. I'm not at all concerned about his ability to go the distance. I just think he needs to sharpen up his defense so that he doesn't have anymore near-disasters like he had his last time out. But, again, Iago Kiladze is better than most folks believe. It's just that he's been put in with a murderer's row of young heavies over his last few fights.

    I agree, he needs to work on his defence, but in the long run he probably has more upside than Dubois.

    I'll watch because Kownacki is entertaining, but its kind of a random fight considering within the last year Gerald Washington got blown away by Kownacki and then KO'd Helenius....now somehow Helenius is fighting Kownacki.....ok.
